I Put A Spell On You:

Mad Professor's take on dub is very interesting. all the standard dub elements are firmly in place, the echoing drums, the plodding bass lines, and reverb by the gallons; but where he differs from many of his dub contemporaries is his robotic sense of production and flow. It's very electronic in nature and therefore can come across as rather cold and sterile. Personally, I like my dub served more warm than cold; but Mad Professor infuses his dubs w/ enough varied ingredients that make Under The Spell Of Dub worthwhile. There's lots of weird trip hop beats on here and plenty of strange choices in production that might drive the rootsy dub listener crazy, but open minded listeners will enjoy this one.

away we go
