Schlachthofbronx - Dun Dem / Soundbad
Schlachthofbronx
Dun Dem / Soundbad
7" | 2018 | US | Original (ZamZam)
8,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Mastered by Sam at Precise. We at ZamZam have long been fans of Schlachthofbronx’s genre-smashing club tracks that harness and hybridize bass music styles from Germany, UK, Jamaica, Mexico, Brazil, and beyond. But when we heard the dark dub of last year’s “Blurred Vision” we knew we had to reach out. Little did we know the duo was already into ZamZam, paving the way to an eagerly anticipated release championed on dubplate by selectors from The Bug to O.B.F. to Toddla T. The Munich pair's ZamZam pushes a sound that's intutive and familiar, yet unlike anything else out there. Schlachthofbronx have carved out an absolutely unique and steely-eyed take on punishing dubwise informed not only by post-punk, house, electro, industrial, and traditional dub reggae principles, but by the legendary 60,000 watt Elemental Wave rig they host their Blurred Vision night on. Imagine an alternative musical universe where PIL, Mad Professor, and Basic Channel hole up in the Batcave for a pitch-black sound system rave and you’re getting the picture.
Deadbeat - Wail Ball & Cry
Deadbeat
Wail Ball & Cry
7" | 2018 | US | Original (ZamZam)
8,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Mastered by Sam at Precise. Deadbeat graced ZamZam with a release in our very first year of operation. Lending his name & gravitas to our young effort with ZamZam06 meant a lot to us at the time, and is something we never forgot, so we couldn’t be happier to have him back for a second outing. Canadian by birth, now residing in Berlin, Scott Monteith is known the world over as one of the most adventurous and reliable producers in the areas of techno and dub-inflected electronic music. Extremely tight quality control over multiple full length albums and countless singles on seminal labels including ~scape, Echochord, and his own flawless BLKRTZ have made him a household name in dub techno and beyond. Deadbeat’s second ZamZam sets aside obvious techno constraints for a mid-tempo reggae scorcher that sounds like it was beamed straight from the humid & heady glory days of the Black Ark studio. Anchored by a tar-thick bassline recalling Lee Perry’s “Dub Organizer,” “Wail Ball and Cry” leans hard into its rockstone drum kit, with whip-sharp turnarounds, clattering Binghi drums, melodica stabs and restrained yet ever-present flange and reverb keeping the atmosphere swampy and sparkling. A sweet falsetto intones on the loneliness and alienation we all navigate in these times of political debasement and (social) media spectacle.
Alpha Steppa - Liberation
Alpha Steppa
Liberation
7" | 2018 | US | Original (ZamZam)
8,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Mastered by Sam at Precise. After years of releases by Alpha & Omega, and most recently Dub Dynasty, ZamZam is proud to offer our first release from Ben Alpha AKA Alpha Steppa, completing the triad from this family steeped in UK roots and dub. As the operator and visionary behind Steppas Records, Alpha Steppa links the history of traditional sound system music to the present of contemporary bass music styles, always with a focus on mindfulness, building community, and higher consciousness through music.
LQ & Headland - Fat Neck
LQ & Headland
Fat Neck
7" | 2018 | US | Original (ZamZam)
8,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Mastered by Sam at Precise. We are very pleased to finally unleash ZamZam 62, a power-plate from New Zealanders LQ & Headland. We’ve been running both of these tunes on acetate for some time now, and the results are consistently devastating. The magic in both of these tunes is how deceptively simple they are, how easy LQ & Headland make it sound but as every fan of sound system music knows, the proof is in the dance.
Bukkha & Madplate Sound - Nada A Perder Feat. Junior Dread
Ojah - Cycles
Ojah
Cycles
7" | 2018 | US | Original (ZamZam)
8,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Mastered by Sam at Precise. ZamZam Sounds welcomes London-based producer Ojah to the fold, best known for his rich analog sound and expert live mixing on numerous 7” and 12” releases on his own excellent Alchemy Dubs label. With a sound at once personal and classic, Ojah has been carving a beautiful niche for himself that we are proud to forward. “Cycles” opens with ominous synths building steadily with the introduction of clave, tambourine and a militant steppers kick. A gorgeous bassline and piano figure drop in, accented with insistent skanks, syndrum, rimshots, more percussion, and a powerfully repetitive, hypnotic, sonar ping in the distance - like a lighthouse cutting through dark and dangerous fog. Fear Not Dub is a militant steppers tune cut from similar sonic cloth, replacing the syndrum with bright claps and rich toms, and adding a theremin-like synth melody and impressionistic melodica courtesy of Ojah’s frequent collaborator, The Specials’ own Nikolaj Torp Larsen, aka Nik Torp. Deep and driving mid-tempo sound system tunes for all those with a passion for hands-on-desk live mixing and dubbing in the tradition
