KING OF THE ZULU TRIBE




Hailing from the northern parts of the UK, Dread & Fred`s revolutionary rhythm construction heralded a next development in the UK dub scene. It was their track "Warrior Stance" that made the first big impact. With a storm of strict digital computerised mayhem - the syncopated percussive drum section, the emblaze of synthesizer horns and effects, and the deep rolling mesmeric bass - it was innovative at the time. That said track alone played by Jah Shaka in session would cause trouble in the dance with the crowd skanking in frenzy and fury. Other highlights included the title track "Iron Works" of which Shaka would play some of the wildest mixes never to be released. Another Shaka favourite in the dance was "African Dawn", a soundscape that would invoke images to the heaving crowd of the promised land that awaits them.
