One of the best of Mad Professor's many Dub Me Crazy releases, The African Connection spotlights the engineer's bubbly and spacious dub conception. Foregoing the denser, more claustrophobic sound of pioneers like King Tubby and Augustus Pablo, this successful English producer (by way of Guyana) fills each track with an ongoing parade of vocals, brass, reeds, percussion, and synthesizers.

Highly recommended.

In the mid-'90s, he returned to the basics,...
