Dreadzone

Dreadzone

Details

One of the most energetic, exciting and powerful live bands to emerge from the post-rave scene, Dreadzone have steadily been releasing albums and progressively bettering, refining and perfecting their own unique and inimitable take on dub since their inception in 1993. Still going strong after 25 years in the game they have also long been and still are, one of the best live bands around.

In 2019, Dreadzone moved forward as a 5 piece, after parting ways with their guitarist after 10 years, and are focusing more on the electronic and dub elements of their stage show - a sound they developed in earlier years of Dreadzone. Their old skool dread sound comes bubbling to the surface on new album ‘Dread Times’ which digs deep into their dub and reggae roots whilst still keeping the beats fresh and the textures electronic. Their last album Dread Times was the band’s 8th studio album and the 3rd release on their own Dubwiser label. The album stormed into the Top 40 UK Official Album Charts on release in 2017 – the first time the band have charted in over 20 years. The album also made the Top 10 in the Indie and Dance Charts.

In August 2019, the band’s own label Dubwiser records released ‘Dreadzone presents: Dubwiser Volume One’, on which The Dread collective bring their own individual talents and skills to the label, with a record that steps back to explore Dreadzone’s very own DNA while stepping forward to expand the label. The Dreadzone family tree has grown new branches, with artists bearing new fruit that demand further exploration. Dreadzone Presents Dubwiser Volume One featuring Dreadzone, Submantra, Louchie Lou & Michie One, Earl 16, Bazil & Professor Skank is out now on CD, Double Black Vinyl, Coloured Vinyl and Digital.
