Zvuloon Dub System, Israelâ€™s leading Reggae band, emerges from a multicultural middle-eastern music scene. Adopting their name from one of the twelve tribes of Israel, the band was formed in 2006 by the Smilan brothers.
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 70â€™s, USAâ€™s soul, funk and jazz, alongside with Israeli mizrahi (oriental) music. Similarly 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 bandâ€™s studio, representing a unique blend of a rich cultural heritage, which can be heard in the debut album, â€śFreedom Timeâ€ť.
The album consists of 9 previously unreleased original songs, and a groovy reggae version of Voodoo Child by Jimi Hendrix. It presents the band’s vision of contemporary roots reggae and dub.
The album released on April 2012 with guest appearance from leading Jamaican DJ, Ranking Joe.
