An underrated release from Mad Professor’s consistently great Ariwa Sounds label, Man And Machine Dubbing In Harmony is the debut album from the Robotiks, Ariwa’s in-house band. While the label is now know for its electronic lovers rock and dancehall in the ’80s with artists like Kofi, Sandra Cross, and Ranking Ann, Man And Machine presents the other side of Ariwa with roots and dub. Nyabinghi drum rhythms and brass harmonies meet digital dub production, electronic drums, and the howling harmonica of George Wilkins for a unique listen that fans of both traditional roots and digital reggae can enjoy. As usual, the great Mad Professor is behind the controls, dubbing out each track with his singular crisp, digital dub approach.
