Hopeton Brown better known as The Scientist (and sometimes known as Overton Brown from Kingston Scientist has worked with the superstars of reggae .He made a series of classic dub albums in the early 1980s, with unforgettable comic book style covers of Scientist blasting Space Invaders, Winning the World Cup, encountering an angry Pac Man, and chasing Evil Vampires. Five of his songs from the album “The Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires” were used as the playlist songs on the K-Jah radio station in the 2001 video game Grand Theft Auto 3
These classic albums have now been re-mastered in 2013 and available for download on his website Dubmusic.com.
In recent years, the influence of Scientist has spread to other genres and he has mixed records for indie acts like Interpol and Santigold as well as consistently being sampled in songs by international superstar acts like the Black Eyed Peas, reggae superstar Alborosie, and electronic band The Orb.
His most recent projects include remixes for California Ska/Reggae band Slightly Stoopid and a new CD with Chicago based jazz band Ted Sirota’s Heavyweight Dub. Scientist has also finished recording and mixing a new album with The Roots Radics which will be released on Issue Records in early 2014. A recent live show at BB King’s club in NYC saw Scientist and The Radics perform their most popular record “The Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires” to a sold out audience proving the longevity of Dub and the genius unique sound of the man known as The Scientist
