Like father like son - this fear also applies to Joe Ariwa. While Papa Mad Professor again anniversary celebrates, the son brings his new album "The next generation of Dub!“(Ariwa Sounds) among the people. With such a title, of course, expectations rise - what could that be, the next Dub-Generation, what groundbreaking development has taken place that even tries to compare generations?
I'll make it quick and painless: Nothing, nada, nothing, rien, zero has developed further. Same-same and definitely not different. Joe Ariwa sounds, smells, tastes and acts like Mad Professor - he is, so to speak, the Ariwa generic (but costs the same). There as there the same arrangements, sounds and effects, even the trademark of the crazy professor, the famous bass fart (for lack of a more appropriate name), is used extensively. There's nothing new to report in terms of sound either: the reviewer's ears bleed on both sides.
So who is a fan of Mad Professor's DubViews is, can be happy: There is now more of the same! Anyone who expected something different or a further development will be disappointed: Standstill is the motto. “The next generation of Dub“Has to take place elsewhere.
