Vinyl LP pressing. Visionary engineer, producer and dub experimentalist, Scientist returns to his roots to mix new album direct-to-disc for latest Night Dreamer session. With over 60,000 recordings to his name, Scientist (born Hopeton Overton Brown) is one of the most influential figures in dub. From Studio One to King Tubby's, Channel One to Tuff Gong, he worked at Kingston's premier studios, pioneering recording techniques and elevating the dub mix into an art form in his own right. Known as the "Dub Chemist" for both his technical expertise and forward-thinking ideas, Scientist's Night Dreamer session brings together musicians from across the London reggae scene, including The Instigators' rhythm section Mafia (bass) and Fluxy (drums), Creation Rebel guitarist Tony Ruffcut, vocalist Donovan Kingjay, Jah Shaka keyboardist Greg Assing, and saxophonist Finn Peters. Joined by Amsterdam-based trombonist Salvoandrea Lucifora and backing vocalists Alyssa Harrigan and Peace Oluwatobi, Scientist went about taking the studio apart and reassembling to his exacting specifications.
