Long Beach ska heroes Sublime have made their latest remix project, Sublime Meets Scientist & Mad Professor Inna L.B.C., available digitally. The new collection of eight sublime remixes by the dub geniuses Scientist and Mad Professor was initially released on CD for Record Store Day.
Throughout their meteoric run in the 1990s, Sublime were never shy about their awestruck devotion to dub music.
“Dub music was the gateway between my love of reggae and psychedelic rock music,” drummer Bud Gaugh once said. “I love the way the drum and bass is so mesmerizing and the studio effects can take you places far off and away while just sitting there in your room. But be careful while driving, you may end up in another state!”
Thanks to a new collection of Sublime remixes, you’re liable to do just that—drift off into a beatific realm. That’s because two of the greatest minds are on the project: Dub royalty doesn’t get much more regal than Scientist and Mad Professor, and here they are—remixing Sublime classics like “Caress Me Down,” “Santeria,” and “April 29, 1992” with zonked humor and cosmic panache.
The record initially came out on June 12 for Record Store Day as a limited-edition CD and a yellow vinyl pressing and features artwork by the legendary Tony McDermott, whose work has graced classic records by artists from Eek-A-Mouse to Shabba Ranks to Shaggy.
Sublime Meets Scientist & Mad Professor Inna L.B.C. is now available digitally and includes two bonus tracks, “Garden Grove Vocal Dub (Scientist Mix)” and “Hong Kong Phooey Dub (Mad Professor Mix),” that were not included on the Record Store Day vinyl LP and only available on the limited-edition Record Store Day CD release.
