INTRODUCING SCIENTIST: THE BEST DUB ALBUM IN THE WORLD

**BACK IN PRINT**Hopeton Brown, better known as Scientist, has been a
pioneering figure in the world of dub for nearly 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.
Introducing Scientist – The Best Dub Album in the World,
his 1980 debut LP, lives up to its boastful title. Recorded
with Sly & Robbie at Channel One Studio and mixed at
King Tubby’s, the album features hypnotic basslines, reverb-
drenched keyboards, and fluid, start-stop rhythms.
Opening track “Steppers,” with its well-balanced phrasing
and organic contours, shows Scientist’s mastery of the studio-
as-instrument concept. On “Scientific,” the effectsladen
guitars are stretched to their outer limit to create
magnificent, spaced-out textures and muted tension. Introducing
Scientist displays the talents of a man obsessed with
every element of production, drawing out the very best of
the dub form.
