OUT NOW | FREEDOM TIME | ZVULOON DUB SYSYTEM'S DEBUT ALBUM

Postby z_dub » Sat Apr 07, 2012 8:33 am

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.

"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
