International Reggae - ZVULOON DUB SYSTEM
   
     

Zvuloon Dub System, an 8 piece band with some of the cream of Israeli underground musicians is Israel's leading World-Reggae band, emerging from a multicultural middle-eastern music scene, singing in English and Amharic.

The band was formed in 2006 by the Smilan brothers adopting their name from one of the twelve tribes of Israel, 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. Similar 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.”

Zvuloon Dub” was released in April 2012 on CD and vinyl and digital under the band's independent label, Med.Tone Records. the album includes a guest appearance from leading Jamaican DJ, Ranking Joe.

While the album has a laid back and soulful vibe to it, the live performance presents the more energetic side of the band, with a special sound that developed during years of live performing. The band achieved great success in the reggae scene, but also amongst many music lovers from other genres.

On stage, the band brings a fresh breath of vibes from around the world. With a powerful lead singer, groovy rhythm section and an eccentric brass section, Zvuloon Dub System creates a heavy Dub experience and gives a new meaning to the word reggae.

The message of the band is peace, love, solidarity and equal rights to all, which, coming from such a controversial country, is spot on!

This year ZDS has unveiled their “Anbessa Dub” project. Featuring a fusion of Reggae and Ethiopian music from the golden age of the 70's.

Quotes: “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 All Stars
