Informacje:

Dreadzone was formed by Greg Dread, writer, producer , DJ, drummer , programmer and sample addict back in 1992 along with fellow founder Tim Bran. After extensive touring and making the first four albums as a member of the original Big Audio Dynamite in the eighties Greg left to form Screaming Target with Don Letts and Leo Williams before finding his spirtual home in the House of Dread. As the mainstay Greg steered Dreadzone through calm and troubled waters throughout their 15 year history through different line ups including constant members Leo Williams (ex BAD) , legendary reggae vocalist Earl 16 and MC Spee, always trusting in the power of the music to keep the dread fire burning. Others to pass through the ranks were Dan Donovan, Dave Harrow, Donna Mckevitt, Rob Marche , Ben Balafonic and the late Steve Roberts, who sadly passed away last year. Dreadzone have come a long way since those early days ,with a formidable catalogue of six albums and fifteen singles, building a reputation for a stunning live show and gaining support from legends such as Annie Nightingale and the late, great John Peel. From the first release on Creation '360' in 93 ,moving on to the success of the seminal Second Light album on Virgin in 95, through the follow up of Biological Radio , Greg then set up the Dread Central studio in West London and a once a month club night Dubwiser' @ the Notting Hill Arts Club which laid the foundation for the next chapter. This led to a hook-up with Fingerlickin Records and the eventual release of their fourth album Sound through hip hop label Rufflife. A following productive period saw more shows as the Dreadzone Sound System, which has pushed the DJ perspective further, leading to the first release on their new label Functional, with the Dreadzone Sound System DJ mix album Beatz & Bobz Volume 4 dropping in Feb 2005 and the new artist album follow up 'Once upon a time' in September 05. Last year saw the release of a definitve live album ?Dreadzone- Live at Sunrise? which was released in October and puts the history of the band into an energetic perspective. Tragically the death of guitarist Steve Roberts, brother of Greg, just days before their UK tour in autumn 2006 dealt the band an unbelievably cruel blow. In 2007 the group set out to pick themselves up and do what they do best and take to the road for the summer festivals and touring Greg Dread alongside bassmaster Leo Williams, M.C Spee and Earl 16 plus new members Chris Compton on guitar and Chris Oldfield rocking the Ableton continue to hold centre stage as the original warriors of the dance . A soundclash fusing technology with human rhythms dub bass , dance beats,live breaks, rocking guitar and electronic soundscapes, held in check with a masterclass of MCing and the best reggae singer in the country. This is truly a heavy live lineup with classic tunes and a unique sound. The future may hold many challenges but Dreadzone once again move forward and continue to shatter preconceptions.
