Moins célèbre que son contemporain Prince Jammy, l’autre protégé du grand pionnier du dub, King Tubby, est Mr. Overton Brown, alias Scientist, né en 1960. Après avoir commencé sa carrière vers 1978, il se distingue rapidement par un style unique. Henry “Junjo” Lawes, producteur de reggae chez Greensleeves, lui offre l’opportunité de produire le talentueux sing-jay Barrington Levy. Leur collaboration, tout aussi remarquable que celle de Prince Jammy et Scientist, aboutit à la création de “Scientist versus Prince Jammy: The Big Showdown” pour Greensleeves. Accompagnés des Roots Radics, ils conçoivent l’une des pièces de dub les plus abouties de l’histoire de la musique populaire. Scientiste ne se contente pas d’être un maître du dub ; il est aussi un véritable expérimentateur, dans le sens le plus scientifique du terme. En 1982, il rejoint le studio Channel 1, et à la fin des années 80, il part pour les États-Unis.
