Product description

Product Description

Electro-dub pioneers Dreadzone were formed from the ashes of Big Audio Dynamite and over their two decade plus career have been championed by the late John Peel, signed to the legendary Creation Records and Virgin before finally securing their independence by founding their own Dubwiser record label. 'Dread Times' is their 8th studio album from the band and the 3rd release on their own label. Their old skool dread sound comes bubbling to the surface on the album and it digs deeper into their dub and reggae influences whilst still managing to keep the beats fresh and the textures electronic. Conscious lyrics, social ills, matters of the heart and mind merge with 21st century dubwise flavour. Alongside core members Greg Dread, who produced this 12 track album, Leo Williams, Chris Compton, Earl 16 and Spee, Dread Times introduces younger blood into the mix. Newest member Bazil bringing an edge to the sonic process and Greg's son Marlon expanding the musical range further. Don Letts also returns with lyrical contributions, as does Lena Cullen on vocals for one track, with 90s ragga duo Louchie Lou and Michie One guesting on another. Recorded again at Mick Jones' Bunker Studio, arranged at Dread Central and mixed by fellow founder Tim Bran, this is classic West London Zone with an updated edge. Dread music for an unpredictable world, these are Dread Times.

"360 degrees" set the scene with a 'perfect' album. Sadly, like a lot of movies, the follow ups tend to lack the punch and drive to keep you anything other than mildly entertained. I started to feel this with Dreadzone and overall albums were not really 'doing it' for me other than a few choice tracks that kept me listening for the next instalment, with the hope that one day I would hear another album to match 360 degrees whilst still obtaining merit in it's own right.

"Dread Times" is for me that album. They have definitely come 360 degrees and pulled a familiar lovable sound out the bag with tunes that I've come to listen to again and again. There hasn't a day gone by where I'm not either listening to this album or humming/singing a tune from it. "Where is my friend" being a current favourite. It's full of flavour and I downloaded it after hearing the track "Mountain" as my gut instinct told me this feels like a return to the source for Dreadzone. Can't wait to see how this album sounds 'live'. ONE love.

My favourite band have lost 'it'. Only a glimpse of past success here, Area Code and After the Storm sound like the Dread I used to like best!
I play all the past albums regulary and never get tired of listening to them, but not this one.

Dreadzone at their absolute best. I love this album. I saw them on the first date of their 2017 Dread Times tour in Pontardawe and it was a really top gig. Bouncing! Go and see them, you won't be disappointed.

Enough nods to past dreadzone long players while keeping an eye on the horizon. Half the tracks you'll like instantly and the rest grow on you. With new things happening with each listen that you didn't notice the listen before. Class production.
