Hopeton O. Brown aka Scientist is a legendary recording engineer & producer, who, as a protégé of King Tubby, burst onto the reggae scene in the early 1970’s with a reckless mixing style that seemed to outdo even King Tubby’s wildest extravaganzas. Having been the principal engineer in the Channel One Studio and Tuff Gong, he produced and engineered numerous albums for the dub scene.
An outstanding practitioner with a truly unique approach to music, Scientist was pivotal in the development of dub and continues to innovate and inspire everyday.
UK dub selector & producer, Nick Manasseh, will be interviewing Scientist and playing some old Scientist records.
