“As you know in DUB, the bass is the most important.. with the SubPac we can trust that the listener can scientifically feel what we produce in the studio.”
Scientist (sometimes known as Overton Brown) was a protégé of King Tubby, one of the originators of dub music.
He came to prominence in the early 1980s and produced many albums, his mixes featuring on many releases in the first part of the decade. In particular, he was the favourite engineer of Henry “Junjo” Lawes, for whom he mixed several albums featuring the Roots Radics, many based on tracks by Barrington Levy. He also did a lot of work for Linval Thompson and Jah Thomas. In 1982 he left Channel One to work at Tuff Gong studio as second engineer to Errol Brown.
