Scientist At The Controls Of Dub: Rare Dubs 1979-1980 [JRLP029]
Label: Jamaican Recordings
Scientist's name will be found on many dub releases in peoples record colections. His connection to King Tubby is inseperable and many would say that when dub had fallen on quiter times it was Scientist who breathed new life into it. His paired down mixing style suited the new danchall reggae sound that came as the 70s rolled into the 80s. Such was his stature that albums were now sold with his name on their jacket, Scientist vs Prince Jammy and Scientist meets the Space Invaders to name but two. Here Jamaican Recordings have compiled some tuff tracks from that same period, before everything went digital.
