UP TO 50% OFF ▶️ https://dreadzone.tmstor.es/

As lockdown gradually loosens, the effects of this year’s live restrictions continue and so we turn to ways to raise some funds to keep the dread ship sailing, starting with a huge sale of all our merchandise with up to 50% off. There has never been a better time to stock up on dread wear and to take advantage of big price reductions across our Vinyl and CD catalogue (except the recently released Once Upon A Time).

Following the release of our dance-floor infused 4th album ‘Sound’ in 2001 the need to take the album live would see a change of line-up. New man Ben Balafonic took on touring duties and moved his mixing desk into the Dread Central studio in West London to start a brand new partnership. Along with new live MC Spee and Greg Dread’s brother Steve a team was building that would go on to create a tougher more MC driven skanking spin on the bass heavy dread sound. Earl 16 also became a big part of an album that evolved slowly in between other projects and remixing during the next 3 years from 2002 to 2005.

Without a live show Greg, Ben and Spee took the Dreadzone Sound System to a new level on the road resulting in a DJ mix album on the Functional Label. To build on that, our 5th album ‘Once Upon A Time’ was finally released in 2005 also on Functional and the band’s fearsome live reputation stepped up a notch with the return of Leo Williams.

The following year of touring took in many dynamic shows resulting in the live album ‘Live at Sunrise’. Sadly the tour for that record never took place. In 2006 Ben left and Steve Roberts tragically passed away effectively drawing a line under this particular period of Dreadzone. Now in 2020 its time to revisit this album with a remastered release that includes double heavyweight vinyl on the bands own Dubwiser label to best tell the story of Once Upon A Time.

When is a Dreadzone album not a Dreadzone album? When it’s Dubwiser Volume One, on which The Dread collective bring their own individual talents and skills to the Dubwiser label, with a record that steps back to explore Dreadzone’s very own DNA while stepping forward to expand the label. The cast includes Earl 16, Bazil, Sub Mantra (Marlon & Greg Roberts), Louchie Lou & Michie One, Professor Skank and of course Dreadzone. Sonically Professor Skank and Bazil show us the way ahead as the masters of the mix on a release that springs from Dread Central . As you will hear the Dreadzone family tree has grown new branches, with artists bearing new fruit that demand further exploration.
