Some insights on the latest ZamZam Sounds release

Today is the first time we have the privilege to get in touch properly with the dub and reggae oriented ZamZam Sounds. The strictly vinyl record label based in Portland, Oregon has content on its back catalogue from amongst others Egoless, LAS, Compa, Ishan Sound, J:Kenzo and Digid. Very familiar artists when we’re talking about dubstep, but ZamZam is very open-minded when it comes to genres and basically is known for picking up the most refreshing sound system music from all over the world, while respecting the original roots and culture. Along the way they developed a very unique identity through a clear vision and culturally coloured background, which is being reflected in the music they’re releasing. Episode fifty four is no exception to their concept as they do introduce D-Operation Drop with two dubplates. Out to Ezra and Tracy for pushing sound system music in the United States, something which is definitely not evident given the history of dub and reggae.
