If you think about it correctly, Neil Fraser is actually the longest-serving, continuously active to this day Dub-Maker of the Planet. Congratulations! He has been producing in his living room since the 4-Track-Ariwa-Studios was founded in 1979 Dubs. In 1982 the legendary album "Dub Me Crazy ”, followed by 11 more albums with the same (sub) title: Milestones of the Dub-History. Now he is celebrating with "40 years of Dub“(Ariwa) himself. He dug deep into the mountain of his recording tapes and - it seems to me - put together his personal favorites from 40 years. What a very personal choice suggests is the fact that its just great Dub-Hits (what a contradictio in adiecto!) Cannot be found here. That makes the album sound fresh and fresh, especially since the crazy professor has remastered his recordings. Many of the titles listed cannot be found in the Ariwa Back Catalog, so it is quite possible that there are previously unpublished ones Dubs of past decades can be heard - unless the madman simply gave the tracks new titles. Be that as it may: The album is fun and the stylistic development of the professor and his music is exciting. With the last track "Forward 2 Africa" he has arrived in the here and now - oh well, he is even a bit ahead of his time!
