Hopeton Brown, better known as Scientist, has been a pioneering figure in the world of dub for 40 years. His early love of electronics proved fruitful when (still a teenager) he was hired at King Tubby's studio in Kingston. Brown quickly ascended the ranks and became heir to Tubby's throne, producing imaginative and technically impressive mixes that solidified his forward-looking nickname.
In The Kingdom Of Dub LP
Superior Viaduct Records
'In the Kingdom Of Dub' is his seminal album from 1980, and comes bearing the instrumental skills of the riddim twins Sly & Robbie, with additional input from the many of JA's finest players. Scientist's dubs have consistently been signified by his wild application of the dub FX tools at his disposal with tough riddims coated in wicked reverb, tape delay and echo laid down with a touch comparable to his peers Lee "Scratch" Perry, King Tubby or King Jammy, but always retaining that watermark of unhinged Scientist cheekiness. Recommended!

T he record features the legendary Roots Radics and the studio stylings of Overton H. "Scientist" Brown, with producer Henry "Junjo" Lawes acting as "referee."
