Scientist Booking Agency Profile

One of the most recognizable names on the Jamaican music scene and a major dub musician, Scientist was recognized for his expansive production and mixing methods as well as his eccentric album titles and cover art. In the LPs of Scientist, he may be seen utilizing his abilities at the mixing desk to take on monsters, legendary bad guys and video game characters. Overton Brown was born in Kingston, Jamaica. Producer/performer Errol "Don" Mais first identified and nurtured Brown's great skills when he was just 16 years old.
His father, a TV repairman, taught the scientist the fundamentals of electronics, which helped him become highly popular with mobile DJs and their occasionally malfunctioning sound equipment.
Soon Scientist was repairing transformers and televisions for King Tubby's. After a lively discussion about record mixing one day, Tubby issued a remixing record challenge to Scientist. He accepted Tubby's challenge with the typical adolescent bravado, which resulted in a lengthy apprenticeship in dub experimentation under Tubby's supervision. The Scientist created his own dub style while working at Tubby's, which is whimsical, extremely psychedelic and full of echo explosions and blasts of feedback. Don Mais heard the Scientist working on the mixing board while visiting Tubby's studio and was immediately drawn to the sound. Scientist created some fantastic dub sides for the Roots Tradition label with Mais overseeing the production..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Scientist to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like Scientist in certain cases will consider virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking Scientist or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
Scientist's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking Scientist for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book Scientist, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing Scientist. After we consult with them, we will provide a personal and accurate quote that includes: final costs, availability, and actual interest in being hired for your specific event or party.
CTI can give you the accurate Scientist booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Scientist for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final Scientist booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Scientist charge for an event. An example fee to book Scientist is in the starting range of $40,000-$74,999. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price as well. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the Scientist agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Scientist manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book Scientist for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Scientist agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Scientist, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Scientist booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Scientist, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
