Biography

Kingston, Jamaica (1978 – present)

Scientist is a name of at least two acts:

[1] A pseudonym of musician Hopeton Brown (aka Overton Brown), from Kingston, Jamaica). Brown burst onto the reggae scene in the early ’70s with a reckless mixing style that seemed to outdo even King Tubby’s wildest extravaganzas. He began his career as an engineer at Tubby’s in 1978. Shortly afterwards he became a Tubby protégé and, by 1980, had gained a reputation with a distinctive mixing style.

He became worldwide known after Rockstar Games used his album ‘Scientist Rids the World of the Curse Of the Vampires’ in 2001.
