Electro-dub pioneers Dreadzone re-issued their classic 2001 album Sound on their own Dubwiser label this Summer. Dreadzone are still going strong after over 20 years in the game with core members Greg Dread, Leo Williams, MC Spee and legendary reggae vocalist Earl 16 alongside Chris Compton on guitar and Bazil completing the current Dreadzone line up. They continue to tour extensively throughout the UK & Europe, and this re-issue is being accompanied by an extensive set of tour dates.

Written and evolved over a two-year period, Sound features contributions from Don Letts, Earl 16, Aswad’s Brinsley Forde and MC Det. As this re-issue demonstrates, the album as a whole sounds as fresh and vibrant today as it did upon release. Indeed, tracks such as Digital Mastermind and Dread’pon Sound have now reached ‘classic’ status, becoming entrenched favourites in the Dreadzone live show. It it is also notable for the first appearance of a certain MC Spee on opener, Return of The Dread.

After party: 11pm – 1am
