Product Description

Product Description

MASSIVE ATTACK V MAD PROFESSOR No Protection (1995 UK 8-track CD album which was the entire Protection album given a dub workout from the legendary Mad professor picture sleeve WBRCD3)

Amazon.co.uk

This is the studio work of London's prodigious dub godfather, Mad Professor, who takes Massive Attack's Protection album as raw material to create a completely new experience. Bits are added, dropped out, accentuated, run through sonic effects, drenched in reverb, turned inside out until the songs disappear and in their place emerge reborn textural soundscapes. No Protection gives a sort of discursive aural commentary on Protection's original songs, pointing out all the obscured details--the most minute percussive rings and beeps, the most mesmerising bass loops. --Roni Sarig

This is less a remix album than a collection of new tracks loosely based around the original recordings which comprised the still-excellent Protection album. What Mad Professor does here is turn up the bass until your ribcage shakes, strips away some of the layers and concentrates on the hypnotic cycles of bass and drums and bass and drums and... it's unsettling, dark and at times dense, but rewarding. I don't know about the first cut being the deepest, but the first track here is the weakest. From thereon in, and just when you may start thinking "I've bought a lemon," the bass rumbles away and sweeps you off with it, and by the time you hit Cool Monsoon, you're away in another dimension. Don't buy this if you want to hear "Protection" with a different drum pattern or arrangement. Buy it if you want to hear a totally different dub-heavy take on a classic album. It's a potent brew.

Fantastic, forget Protection, I think many people who buy this are expecting a remix of Unfinished Sympathy. It's not, it's dub, that's what it was meant to be and that's what it is. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

Dub originates from Jamaican producers in the 60s messing around with the instrumental track of popular reggae hits, often as B sides. The echo chamber often being the weapon of choice, this is what the Professor triumphs at and what he is best remembered for.
It drags you in and spits you out, enveloped in a gluey, sticky bass bubble, adhering you helpless to the sofa and unable to reach for the controls. What a way to go......

i've had this album for years, originally i never liked it and it gathered dust on my shelf but recently i rediscovered it and i think its fantastic. imagine my surprise then when watching High Fidelity and it gets quoted by John Cusac... whatever. anyway, i reccomend playing this very late at night, say 4 in the morning when you have had to stay up all night to do lots of work. play it through big headphones and it will sound fantastic to your vulnerable brain. but it does take a few listens to when you first buy it...

This set of dubbed out remixes takes a classic of the Bristol trip hop movement and adds a thoroughly warranted dub slant to the underlying melodies. The result is a fantastic reforming of Massive Attack's work with a new depth and sonic impetus which will prove a worthy addition to anyone's collection of smoked out discs. A 90's classic.

A GOOD BIT OF DUB A simple yet useful piece of music when one is chilling properly. It's not the greatest dub I have ever heard but it is nicely created. Great for mixing and great for night time moods this works for me. I have since looked at Mad Professors other work and found it to be pretty nice if you like the dub side of life. If you love the original sounds of dub look for Dub Chill out as it has some of the greatest masters of Reggae and dub and will give you a taster of where this came from. As for Massive attack I am in love with most of their work but most of all 100Th window which is dubby but way more grungy. But that's just me.

Mad Professor has blessed us with a numerous number of classic dub tracks throughout decades, and still does.
The weakness with previous albums is that there are just a few tracks on each album that are really good, but with this collaboration with Massive Attack, every track is a small Masterpiece in itself.
Although it is a few years old, it still feels very fresh. Buy it and enjoy.
