UK dub pioneers Zion Train is set to release State of Mind, their first original album since the award-winning Live as One, put out in 2007.
State of Mind follows in the footsteps of the recently released retrospective Dub Revolutionaries – The Very Best Of, and includes the same tasty ingredients as you might expect – tough bass lines, horns, hard electronic beats and dub-infused riddims.
But it doesn’t stop there. Zion Train has taken a step forward and added violin, viola and dub poetry.
Aswad-singer Brinsley Forde was featured on last year’s first single Rainbow Children, an update of an old Aswad tune. Other featured artists are Zion Train’s own Dubdadda and Lua alongside Jamaican Dub Poetess Jazz’min Tutum.
State of Mind hits the streets on October 3rd.
