Scientist – Scientific Dub (1981)

“Stone cold classic Dub LP, faithfully reissued by Clocktower Records. If there was ever a time to judge a record by its cover, this is it. Lurking behind the kinetic cover art is an LP of truly seminal provenance; ten tracks tweaked, nudged and carved up by the legendary, one-of-a-kind producer Scientist at King Tubby’s studio in 1981. You’re best ignoring the ‘Executive Producer credits to Clocktower label owner Brad Osbourne, ‘coz it’s quite obvious whose hands are at work on these mighty takes of ‘Satta Dread Dub’, ‘Drum Song Dub’, Taxi To Baltimore Dub’, the mystical ‘Blacka Shade Of Dub’ and the cavernous ‘Just Say Dub… Who’. Essential purchase, no doubt.”

“Overton Brown was only 16 years old when producer/performer Errol ‘Don’ Mais discovered and used the considerable talents of this adolescent dub whiz. Born in Kingston in 1960, the Scientist learned basic electronics from his TV repairman father, skills that made him very popular with the mobile DJs and their not-always-functioning sound systems. A friend suggested he visit the legendary dub producer/mixer King Tubby, not to remix records, but to get some transformers by which Scientist could build his own amplifiers.”
