On Dub 911-his first album of all-new material in three years-the dude that once rid the world of evil vampires and repelled space invaders once again shows his mastery of the dub format. Layering shimmering keyboards, twinkling bells, wailing guitars, vocal washes, and various FX over a batch of familiar riddims, Scientist keeps the reverb and echo more understated than some of his peers while emphasizing overall instrumental craftsmanship. No two tracks sound alike; each is meticulously constructed for maximum drum-and-bass-driven, time-space continuum-shifting effect. Were Scientist to work outside of the reggae field, he‘d be a household name. As it stands now, he‘ll have to settle for merely being one of dub‘s most respected architects.
