♬♬ The Scientist ♬♬
Hopeton Overton Brown (born 18 April 1960) is a recording engineer and producer best known for the Dub music he mixed as "Scientist" in the 1980s. A protégé of Osbourne Ruddock, Brown's contemporaries include several figures who, working at King Tubby's, had helped pioneer the genre in the 1970s: Ruddock, Bunny Lee, Philip Smart, Pat Kelly and Prince Jammy. Brown's mixing is notable, in part, for his ability to deconstruct the source material to create sparse, stripped-down arrangements layered with effects (often dramatically changing the tone of the original song).
♬♬ Goodtown Sound System ♬♬
♬♬ NkeChi the WarriorQueen Music ♬♬
From 1999 to 2004, NkeChi presented the Roots Feast Information Show on Genesis Radio, London UK and after taking a break from radio, is now back as a co-presenter in RealMusicFm’s Family Reasoning Show. Nkechi has always been known to frequent Roots Music sessions “to keep my life in balance after so much hard work” she quotes.
She now performs as a Roots Reggae Selector known as “Sistah Nkechi the WarriorQueen” playing mainly vinyls with a distinctly roots & culture spiritual vibration (King David Style) regularly with large sounds such as Josiah Sound System, I-Creation Sound System as well as sessions at Drumbeat in Leyton and Orleans in Finsbury Park.
From 1-8pm (outside - depending on the weather!)
♬♬ Live Dub Natty Session with Prince Hammer ♬♬
Prince Hammer: After deejaying on the Vee-Jay sound system in the early 1970s, Simpson initially recorded under his own name (as 'Berris Simpson') in the mid-1970s with producer Glen Brown for whom he recorded "Whole Lot of Sugar" and "Tel Aviv Rock", before adopting the 'Prince Hammer' name when he began producing his own recordings on labels that he owned such as Gold Cup and Belva, sold through his own record shop on Orange Street. He released several singles in the late 1970s for a variety of producers.[He made a cameo appearance in the film Rockers, and found a wider audience via his Blacka Morwell-produced 1978 album Bible, released on Virgin Records' Front Line label. This was followed by the album Roots and Roots, released on Adrian Sherwood's Hitrun label in 1979.
Hammer toured the UK with Bim Sherman and Prince Far I in 1979 and later with punk rock bands such as THE CLASH and The Slits.
A second album for Hit Run, Dancehall Style, was released in 1981, and they worked again on his 1985 album Vengeance. He appeared on the track "The Heat" on Suns of Arqa's 1983 album Wadada Magic, he features on their live album with Prince Far I entitled Musical Revue which was recorded in 1982, and he provides vocals on "Libera Me" on their 1987 album Seven. He also worked with Roy Cousins on the Respect I Man album (1989).
Hammer also worked as a producer, and produced Rod Taylor's If Jah Should Come Now album. Other artists that he produced included Echo Minott, Jennifer Lara, Toyan, Trinity, and George Nooks, and several of his productions were compiled on the Africa Iron Gate Showcase album, released on his own Berris label in 1982.
