Steve Bicknell has just done a mix of Jamaican legend Scientist for Vinyl Factory.
“Hopeton Overton Brown aka Scientist was my introduction to collecting music. As a teen on my way home from school I would pop into Dub Vendor in Clapham Junction, listen and soak up the atmosphere of the shop, the music, and carefully purchase a few pieces of vinyl, one album being Big Showdown at King Tubby’s 1980.”
“Around this time Scientist’s output was quite plentiful as he became the principle engineer for Channel One, so more albums and 12’s soon followed. Brown’s production approach still inspires me today, and will throughout my lifetime. I aimed to present the mix in a showdown fashion, I hope this comes across. A few pops and crackles but I cleaned the vinyl the best I could”
