DREADZONE

+ special guest THE SAVAGE NOMADS
+ DJ DON LETTS

Dreadzone recently celebrated 20 years in the game with the release of their 7th studio album ‘Escapades‘. The band, with roots in Big Audio Dynamite, have had career which has spanned the credibility of a Creation Records release, major moves on Virgin and independent releases including through their own label Dubwiser Records. Their highly anticipated new album ‘Escapades’ was recorded at Mick Jones’ London studios and co-produced by original Dreadzone member and co-founder Tim Bran.

The core members Greg Dread, original bassmaster Leo Williams, the unmistakable MC Spee, legendary reggae vocalist Earl 16 alongside Chris Compton on guitar and Bazil on technology make up the current Dreadzone live line up. Hit records, critical acclaim and a huge, devoted fan base are theirs, due in part to their utterly storming live shows.

Electro-dub pioneers Dreadzone formed in 1993 when ex-Big Audio Dynamite drummer Greg Roberts teamed up with Tim Bran, with the duo soon joined by bassist Leo Williams and keyboardist Dan Donovan, also formerly of Big Audio Dynamite, completing the group’s first line-up. A festival favourite, Dreadzone opened the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury in 1994 and began to bring their unique blend of electro, dub and reggae to a wider audience, going on to chart seven Top 60 singles (including their Top 20 hit ‘Little Britain’).

Special guest DON LETTS

DJ, musician and film-maker Don Letts’ reputation has been firmly established in both the film and music world, by a substantial body of work, from the late 70’s through the 80’s, 90’s and well into the millennium. He came to notoriety in the late 70’s as the DJ that single handedly turned a whole generation of punks onto reggae. It was whilst DJing at the first punk club ‘The Roxy’ in 1977, that Don adopted the punk D.I.Y ethic and began to make his first film ‘The Punk Rock Movie’. Shot on Super-8mm, it is the only documentary on the U.K punk scene; featuring The Sex Pistols, The Clash and many others. This led to a period directing over 300 music videos for a diverse range of artists, including Bob Marley, Elvis Costello and Beenie Man. In the mid 80’s he formed the group ‘Big Audio Dynamite’ with Mick Jones (ex-Clash) and Greg Dread and Leo Williams who went on to form Dreadzone.
