Scientist - Dub In The Roots Tradition

Scientist - Dub In The Roots Tradition

Hopeton Brown was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in the year 1960. But he is better known under the name Scientist. Is there a dubhead that does not know his works at Channel One studios? His serial on the Greensleeves Label has reached legendary status!

That Scientist is a real natural talent is proven when you hear his earlier works. Thank you Blood and Fire, for providing the evidence! When he was only 17 years old, he cut some pretty crucial dubs for producer Don Mais and his Roots Tradition label. These tunes were never released on an album before but you could more or less see Roots Tradition as his debute.

Scientist definitely goes further there where King Tubby stops. It is incredible when you realize all the dub mixing work on this album is done by hand. No automatic computerized consoles, stricktly Dub Handyworks. And added to that, you should remember, that Scientist was only a teenager when he mixed these killer DUBS.

As always with Blood and Fire, this album comes with beautiful cover art and a lot of information which will surely help you to enjoy the music to the fulness.
