At Byrd Out we are incredibly pleased to have tempted dub pioneer Mad Professor out of his Ariwa Studios in South London to E17!
Mad Professor will be bringing his unique sounds to the Maud space at Mirth, Marvel & Maud, the Grade II listed ‘old cinema’ in Walthamstow for what promises to be a sonic journey to remember. He is one of the leading producers in dub reggae’s second generation, has collaborated with a host of artists, including Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, and has remixed the like of The Orb, The Beastie Boys, The KLF, depeche Mode, and (of course) Massive Attack. Mad Professor’s Live Show will begin around 10pm.
