SUBLIME’S MOST BELOVED SONGS REMIXED BY LEGENDARY DUB PIONEERS SCIENTIST AND MAD PROFESSOR FOR THE DIGITAL RELEASE OF SUBLIME MEETS SCIENTIST & MAD PROFESSOR INNA L.B.C.
ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN JUNE FOR RECORD STORE DAY 2021 ON YELLOW VINYL & CD.
Los Angeles, CA — October, 2021 — 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 & Mad Professor, and here they are—remixing Sublime classics like ‘Caress Me Down’, ‘Santeria’ and ‘April 29, 1992′ with zonked humor and cosmic panache. Such is Sublime Meets Scientist & Mad Professor Inna L.B.C., a new collection of eight Sublime remixes by the pair of dub geniuses. 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.
Beneath it all, Sublime Meets Scientist & Mad Professor Inna L.B.C. is a tribute to the band’s endless affection for dub and listening to Scientist vs. Prince Jammy: Big Showdown at King Tubby’s and Mad Professor Captures Pato Banton on a regular basis. And even if you’re new to the world of dub and reggae, it’s sobering to hear the best toasting the best: It doesn’t get better than these vanguards of the style tipping their hats to one of the greatest bands of the ‘90s. Grab a copy of Sublime Meets Scientist & Mad Professor Inna L.B.C., get in the van and be transported to a sunny summer day in SoCal with a dalmatian riding shotgun.
