It is not every day that an opportunity comes up to watch an act that pioneered the dub genre. On 20th January, Scientist meets Horseman and the Uppercut Band to bring you a rare opportunity to see the master mix live on stage – Scientist is considered to be the last classical Jamaican mixer, so this gig is a ‘now or never’ type deal with musicians that are firmly riding the current dub wave.
In terms of creativity within dub, a lot is owed to Scientist. His experimental style began during the 60s with King Tubby, progressed by working with Prince Jammy in the 70s, and built up a crescendo with Peter Chemist in the mid-80s.
When someone has been part of a genre from start to finish, you know you are in for a unique show. I hope you will join Rhythm Passport at the Jazz Café for a night that is guaranteed to be unforgettable.
