2015 is properly up and running now with the highly anticipated FIRE IN THE DARK release OUT NOW, after gaining 180k hits on UKF the Teddy Killerz awesome remix spearheads this package which includes mixes from Bazil and King Dread.
Also, to mark 21 years of Dreadzone, here is a mix that links the more dancefloor sounds of dread together in a chronological order to tell our story from house and techno through to breaks and dubstep featuring remixes from the likes of Underworld, William Orbit, Soul of Man and Trolley Snatcha.

Greetings from the zone..
As we move into the final week of a fantastic autumn/winter tour connecting with all the dread massive we are reminded of previous years of escapades on the road and still keeping it as exciting as ever, joining the dots between the festival field and the dance halls up and down the country on a never ending road of life love and unity.
It’s been a great year for shows, no releases but… We do have some great things lined up for the start of next year – ‘Fire in the Dark’ as a second single release from Escapades with some killer remixes – a mighty Teddy Killerz mix which is already blowing up on UKF with nearly 100k hits in ten days LISTEN HERE
Dreadzone’s very own Bazil dropping a deep bass dnb roller and King Dread (aka Greg Dread and King Yoof) with a ‘rumours riddim’ reggae mix. Along with a radio edit it will be on vinyl and digital from 25 Jan 2015 – you can pre order your copy HERE
We will follow this with a re-issue release of our 2001 album Sound especially remastered with bonus tracks which will be available on vinyl cd and digital. We have been dropping some tunes from this album in the set and plan to put some more in as we continue to refresh the live show which starts again at the end of February, dates and links are below
The Dreadzone Soundsystem shows take over as usual in the first part of the year with shows in Prague, London and the south west, some with Earl 16 joining us. We have a new page for the Dreadzone Soundsystem with details of all the shows which start with a pre Christmas party on the 23rd December in Malvern and then a double header on New years Eve in Plymouth and Bristol, Info HERE
