Ever since father Neil Fraser, the mad professor, retired, his son Joe has been taking care of new Ariwa productions. And since he has a preference for cooperation projects with other producers, there is now the album "Adam Prescott meets Joe Ariwa“(Ariwa). They both put their production skills together, hired Black Steel and Ashanti Selah (son of Aba Shanti-I) as musicians and built fat roots rhythms: classic one-drop, but also massive steppers. From my point of view, the latter turned out better. They make up for what they lack in melody and arrangement with pure energy. Indeed: most Dubs are not particularly inspired. The two vocal tunes by Ranking Joe and Donovan KingJay don't really help either. Just as little as Adam Prescott's melodic playing. I think it's wonderful that Joe is continuing his father's work, but I haven't really been enthusiastic about his albums so far. Unfortunately, “Adam Prescott Meets Joe Ariwa” is (again) no exception.
