Professor Skank is by far the most well-known Greek dub producer with a number of great releases and collaborations.
Born and raised in Greece, he experimented with the genre at a really young age on a 4-track recorder in the early 90’s. Meeting Mad Professor was a turning point for him. He discovered his talent and initiated him into the secrets of dub music. In the following years this collaboration allowed him to use the legendary Ariwa Studios and work with great artists like Max Romeo, Zion Train, Brinsley Ford Aswad, Love Grocer, Earl16, Vibronics, Afrikan Simba, Dreadzone and many other. In 2006, his first solo album “Industrial Democracy” was released through Universal music.
Based in his studio, he keeps on producing music, releasing vinyls and remixing tunes on international labels, presenting his music all around the world. Professor Skank is the first Greek musician to ever appear in Glastonbury Festival, Great Britain ‘s most famous music festival.
In 2014 Mad Professor starts a new collaboration with Pale Sound Records and releases his second solo album “Digital Revolution”. His bet with himself was to bring together two different cultures, the Cretan musical tradition and the Jamaican reggae/dub. In his studio, surrounded by traditional instruments and music gurus he recorded the musicians playing in reggae/dub rhythms. During his tours and performances, Professor Skank had the chance to meet many great artists like the legendary and one of the best living reggae singers, Earl 16, who offered his unique voice in “The Money Pressure” accompanying Nigel Farage’s dramatic speech for the financial problems of Greece. And where the samples end, the voice of MC J Fyah from Moca Juniors takes over and gives a festive touch to the project.
« Where the European south meets the Jamaican culture and the Cretan tradition welcomes the soul of Wareika Hill, there we can find the “Digital Revolution” ».
