Mad Professor, Channel One, Sandra Cross for Croydon's Ariwa Sounds

The Mad Professor's career will be celebrated at a night of music as part of Croydon’s year as London’s Borough of Culture in 2024.

The dub reggae legend will be joined by his Ariwa label mates such as Channel One Sound System and Sandra Cross at Fairfield Halls on Saturday, February 24th.

A disciple of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, and with production credits with artists such as Massive Attack, Sade, and the Orb, as well as reggae legends Jah Shaka, Horace Andy, Macka B and U-Roy, the show will demonstrate Mad Professor’s live dub mixing and invite resident artists of his label to the stage.

Other artists set to feature on the night are Abel Miller, Askala Selassie, I Jah, and The Robotics.

Gig-goers will also have the opportunity to visit a mini exhibition chronicling the career of Mad Professor and Ariwa Sounds through original artwork and cover art illustrations over the decades.
