About this artist

Overton Brown, also known as the Scientist, is one of Jamaica's leading Dub producers. Learning the ins and outs of electronics from his TV repairman father, he was a noted sound technician by age 16. His musical skills were soon discovered by Dub legend King Tubby, who became Brown's mentor. Soon the Scientist was one of Jamaica's premier remixers. His style is playful, laden with swooping echoes, playful electronic bleeps, and just enough reverb to keep things slightly fuzzy and out of focus.
