Born Hopeton Overton Brown, ‘Scientist’ made his breakthrough with a reckless mixing style developed at King Tubby’s studio during the late seventies, when the sound of Dancehall was beginning to make its presence felt amidst the more international roots sound pioneered by Bob Marley. His dubs were so wild they even outdid Tubby’s own spectacular efforts at times as he conjured up thunderclaps, explosions, and an entire battery of special fx from his mentor’s four-track mixing-board, hidden deep in the heart of the West Kingston ghetto.

Whilst his mentor King Tubby was the first Jamaican sound engineer to popularise Dub, it was Scientist who gave it a more contemporary expression and raised it to the level of an art form. One initially forged from raw ghetto talent, but that has since found an audience of truly global proportions, as evidenced by the number of current day remixers whom he inspired, and also the enduring popularity of early mixes such as these.
