Dreadzone are still going strong after over 20 years in the game with core members Greg Dread, Leo Williams, MC Spee, legendary reggae vocalist Earl 16, Chris Compton on guitar and Bazil completing the current Dreadzone line up.
Dreadzone formed in 1993 when the former Big Audio Dynamite rhythm section; drummer Greg ‘Dread’ Roberts and bassist Leo Williams teamed up with musician, producer and mixer Tim Bran. Throughout the 1990’s Dreadzone had continually remixed itself; chopping and changing members and record labels (including stints on both Virgin and Alan McGhee’s Creation). Greg and Tim decided to approach the new millennium with a fresh idea in the form of the Dubwiser Club night at Notting Hill Arts Club. They channelled their energy into club nights that fused dub and reggae with contemporary beats to create the perfect soundtrack for people from different planets.
Hit records, critical acclaim and a huge, devoted fan base are theirs, due in part to their utterly storming live shows.
