De­cem­ber 7. Hopeton Brown, bet­ter known as Sci­en­tist, has been a pi­o­neer­ing fig­ure in the world of dub for 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. Orig­i­nally re­leased in 1981, In The King­dom Of Dub re­mains one of the best early LPs in Sci­en­tist’s long ca­reer. Pro­duced by Roy Cousins at Chan­nel One and fea­tur­ing Sly & Rob­bie along with mem­bers of The Rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies, The Ag­grova­tors and The Soul Syn­di­cate, the al­bum of­fers a wide range of ar­rest­ing rhythms, bold ef­fect drops and exquisitely melodic bass.
