Mad Professor was asked by Massive Attack to perform this Mezzanine show as part of the day at London’s All Points East festival that they are headlining and curating in late May.  This will be the first time it’s performed in Ireland. The show at The Sugar Club now on Friday 2nd April this will be a 2 hour show in two parts, featuring both his Mezzanine show, and also the Mad Professor live Dub show featuring classics from throughout his 40 year career and other dub reggae classics.  This is Mad Professor’s first Dublin show of any kind since 2014, and will feature a guest vocalist from his legendary Ariwa label.

Mezzanine was Massive Attack’s groundbreaking third album, originally released in 1998, and saw them broaden their signature trip hop sound to encapsulate other genres including new wave, electronica, rock and dub reggae.  It featured the smash hits Teardrop, Angel and Inertia Creeps  amongst others, and reached number 1 in the album charts of several countries including Ireland, UK and Australia.  Publications that later listed it amongst the greatest albums of all time include Rolling Stone, NME and Q; while Pitchfork awarded it a very rare 9.3/10 rating.

These radical re-workings by Mad Professor invite the listeners to hear these classics through a different prism.
