Greetings,We are excited to announce our debut album, FREEDOM TIME, is being released!!
Listen to the album here:
Our unique sound and style has been developed throughout our six years of playing together. Freedom Time was produced, recorded, and mixed at our home studio. It includes 10 original tracks, one of them featuring Jamaican reggae star Ranking Joe
; and our own reggae inspired version of Jimi Hendrix's classic, Voodoo Chile
Zvuloon Dub System’s music combines roots reggae and rub a dub, with influences from several other genres like jazz, funk, soul, afro beat, Ethiopian and Mediterranean music.
The album is being released on the band’s independent label, Med.Tone Records, and is being distributed independently around the world. Roger Steffens
, Founding Chairman, Reggae Grammy Committee, wrote about the new album:
"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."
As of today our album is available in both digital version and on CD. The vinyl version is expected to be released this summer.
