Legendary recording engineer & producer, Scientist makes his long-awaited return to Liverpool alongside MC Horseman when they play Baltic Triangle favourite District next Friday 23rd November – with DJ support on the night coming from Sticky Joe (Kingston Express Records).
As a protégé of King Tubby, Scientist began his career in the mid 1970’s mixing for a host of reggae heavyweights, including Barrington Levy and Roots Radics. It was in the early 1980’s that he really came to prominence with the release of a number of dub masterpieces, including the critically acclaimed, Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires.
An outstanding practitioner with a truly unique approach to music, Scientist was pivotal in the development of dub and wider electronic music and continues to innovate and inspire today.
This is another outstanding coup for the team behind Positive Vibration Festival who continue to bring the very finest dub and reggae music artists to the city. Positive Vibration founder and DJ Rory Taylor had this to say about the legendary Scientist :
“As a true pioneer of dub and electronic music, it’s an absolute honour to be hosting Scientist again. We first worked with him last year when he played at the 2017 Positive Vibration Festival. Performing alongside one the UK’s finest MCs (and drummers), Horseman, this is going to be a very special night”.
In addition to his live performance, The Scientist will be hosting a 2-day music production masterclass on the Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd November. Aspiring musicians and producers will have the chance to learn from one of the world’s most innovative and important sound engineers, aptly referred to as ‘The Dub Master’.
Taking place at the world-famous, Motor Museum Recording Studio, the masterclass is a unique opportunity to learn recording, production and mixing techniques and should serve as an invaluable experience for all those in attendance.
This is going to be a very special show and should not be missed. Last few tickets remaining for both the live show and the masterclass – get them while you still can! Details below.
