Zion Train

Zion Train have been one of the planet's most prolific groups, along with a mammoth recorded output and innumerable production credits, remixes and song writing collaborations they have produced magazines, CD-ROMs, Internet sites and built sound systems. Their early releases were on their own Universal Egg label, until in 1995 they signed to China Records.  They released the world's first promotional dub music video for the 'Get Ready' single and caused a furore with the publicity campaign for their ‘Homegrown Fantasy’ album. Back on their own Universal Egg label since 1999, they have continued to release quality dub, electronica and world dance music. Their work from the past 20 years still sounds fresh to today's discerning ears.

 ‘Live as One’, their ninth record was awarded a coveted Jamaican Reggae Grammy for ‘Best Dub Album’. 'State of Mind', the follow up to 'Live as One', was released October 2011 and has received more excellent reviews. The album was previewed by 'Rainbow Children', an update of the Aswad classic with Brinsley Forde joining Dubdadda and MC Python on vocals. Also, in June ‘The Very Best of Zion Train – Dub Revolutionaries’ was released on the highly respected world music label Nascente, home of recent releases from Skatalites, Manu Dibango, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
