Entering an impressive 3rd decade, Dreadzone, one of the most energetic, exciting and powerful live bands to emerge from the post-rave scene, released a brand new album Dread Times in February which stormed into the Top 40 UK Official Album Charts on release – the first time the band have charted in over 20 years. The album also made the Top 10 in the Indie and Dance Charts.
Their old skool dread sound comes bubbling to the surface on this album and it digs deeper into their dub and reggae roots whilst still keeping the beats fresh and the textures electronic. Conscious lyrics, social ills, matters of the heart and mind merge with 21st century dubwise flavours.
Now well established on the UK Festival scene, Subgiant are continuing to develop their unique brand of live electronica.
Since breaking onto the circuit, the three piece have enjoyed many high profile gigs including Glastonbury, on the infamous West Dance Stage and headlining the Dance Stage at Beautiful Days, having been asked back. Other headline slots at the Ragged Hedge Festival, Blissfields and The Vale Earth Fair have also been memorable gigs.
