Zvuloon Dub System, Israel's leading Reggae band, emerges from a multicultural middle-eastern music scene. Adopting their name from one of the twelve tribes of Israel, the band was formed in 2006 by the Smilan brothers.
They shared the same passion for roots reggae and dub, with influences from a variety of music styles, like Ethiopian jazz and rare grooves from the 70’s, USA's soul, funk and jazz, alongside with Israeli "mizrahi" (oriental) music. Similarly to the major producers of reggae, like Lee Perry and King Tubby, the band is also keen on creating not just their own music but their own sound. All their tracks are produced, recorded and mixed in the band's studio, representing a unique blend of a rich cultural heritage, which can be heard in the debut album, "Freedom Time".
The album consists of 9 previously unreleased original songs, and a groovy reggae version of Voodoo Child by Jimi Hendrix. It presents the band's vision of contemporary roots reggae and dub.
"Zvuloon Dub System demonstrates conclusively why they are Israel's top reggae band, proving great roots music today finds some of its finest expressions outside its Jamaican homeland. Touching on many of the major themes of conscious reggae with authentic rhythms and tasty lead vocals, Zvuloon deserves a wide international audience."
(Roger Steffens, Founding Chairman, Reggae Grammy Committee)
"Freedom Time takes the listener back to the golden days of reggae in the 70's - if I had heard the album without knowing who it was, I would have thought that it was a rare Glen Brown production mixed at King Tubby's. The musicianship, singing, and production are all top notch. It's great to find new reggae that sounds so authentic yet so natural."
(Michael Goldwasser - Easy Star Records)
