Scientist - Dub In The Roots Tradition


Scientist - Dub In The Roots Tradition
Label: Blood And Fire
Record date : 1976-79
Album style: Dub, Lee Library, Roots

Another compilation of dubs appearing for the first time ever on album. Producer Don Mais enlisted the talents of the 17-year old Scientist to mix the dub versions for his Roots Tradition label's B-sides. The cuts collected here present a fascinating insight into the young Dubmaster's early efforts, while the rhythms themselves, some played by an embryonic version of Roots Radics, mark the transition point from the reggae styles of the seventies into what would become known as dancehall.
