April 26th 2010 sees the release of the much anticipated Dreadzone album
EYE ON THE HORIZON. Reflecting the band illustrious past and innovative
releases, EYE ON THE HORIZON firmly picks up where the bands popular
top 20 chart hit LITTLE BRITAIN left off. It reinvents the band with ten
tracks that signify the move into fully formed songwriting against a
backdrop of dubwise dancabilty. This
style helped them to become one of the UK’s original dance music
pioneers , with a style that has since spawned many sub genres. MCing
and reggae vocals partner the mix of live guitars, electronic beats and
dub bass to perfection. The album features iconic samples (notably, the
legendary theme from Long Good Friday on Gangster, a spoken word piece
from Woody Guthrie and Dennis Browns Greensleeves classic Whip Them Jah
on American Dread) all of which compliment the bass and beat heavy
Dreadzone style perfectly.
The Dreadzone story began with Alan McGee‘s Creation Records and their first groundbreaking album 360, continuing with major waves their seminal 1995 album SECOND LIGHT picking up support from John Peel (who included the album in his top ten favourite albums of all time). The top 20 hit from that album LITTLE BRITAIN has since gone on to acquire classic status.
