No worries. It's not like we're going against the clock with this or anything

Scientist Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampires (1981)


Scientist is a Protege of King Tubby (more later on him) who was primarily a producer but who made some classic albums in the 80's with his album titles and covers as legendary as the albums themselves. In fact I had quite a time trying to decide which of the Scientist albums I have to include here. With Scientist Wins The World Cup, Scientist Meets The Space Invaders and Scientific Dub all just as good.

Maybe I did choose this on a whim as they are all as good as each other. Scientist's approach to Dub was generally the composition of new tracks as opposed to eleborating on previous material. This means that Electronics play more of a part to get the required sounds and effects so indicative of dub. Some purists bemoan this style of Dub which is understandable but the music is so damn good, I find it hard to complain! Another feature of Scientist's music is the general Groove and the 'Jam' quality of the music with most tunes put down in a couple of days for Scientist to tinker with.

Dubmatix-Champion Sounclash (2004)


Another new name to the Dub sound and a band that I have regularly championed on these boards and with good reason. Dubmatix are one of the new breed of self styled 'Electro Dub' artists that use turntables as well as live musicians to create an infectious mix of dub, hip hop and sweet grooves with Bossa and Club sounds.

The band who hail from Canada have slowly built up a cult following despite making infrequent sojourns overseas. Their use of huge basslines, horns and electric beats is a sound that I defy anyone not to end up enjoying if heard on a sound system. With appearances by Reggae stalwarts such as Freddie McGregor and remixes for Missy Elliott under their belt, Dubmatix are the new breed of 21st century Dub champions.

This is from their later release 'Atomic Subsonic' from 2006 as YouTube is unfortunately light on this great band.

Dubmatix are a top, top band, so a great pick there. As for Scientist, after a quick check all I've got on my EHD are a couple of tracks by Scientist and the Roots Radics. I have got some Mad Professor though, which is close enough I suppose

Speaking of which, I'll post my next two very soon...

Dubmatix really is fantastic. I checked them out a while back in the Dubmatix thread: http://www.musicbanter.com/reggae-sk...-dubmatix.html, and downloaded the free album that was posted there. I've been hocking it to a few friends of mine and they all love it. Anything else by them that you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Scientist Rids the World.... Is without a doubt one of my favorite dub albums, And the Dubmatix, who you turned me onto well over a year ago Lee, is just as amazing. Great choices so far. Keep em' coming.
