We’ve teamed up with our new friends at the superb ZamZam Sounds imprint to celebrate their upcoming release. And ZAMZAM23 is definitely an all-star drop from the USA’s West Coast dub pioneers and a pretty killer artist line up…
‘Alpha & Omega return to ZamZam with a powerful missive from the heart of UK dub, one of their most massive tunes in some time. The huge rhythm combines the militancy of a stepper with the swagger of a one drop, propelled further with double-time hi-hats, a gorgeous organ line, acidic synth splashes and a regal melodica that calls to higher heights.
‘Featuring a signature sweet vocal refrain from Don Goliath and a heartical chant from none other than the don Dillinger, this huge track and the accompanying dub version are sure-fire for the dance.’
John Alpha (on behalf of A&O):
“Christine and I both listened to the amazing Dillinger separately before we even started Alpha And Omega… so it is a real pleasure that the great ZamZam Sounds are releasing this new A&O track featuring Dillinger. It was all made possible by all the hard work and vocals of Don Goliath, we hope you enjoy it, many thanks A&O.”
ZamZam’s next release features the sounds of legendary musicians Alpha & Omega, Don Goliath and Dillinger. Limited copies will drop at the end of October – only 700 copies pressed (and no repress/ digital release) – so once the release is gone, it’s gone for good! You can find a list of ZamZam stockists on their SoundCloud (or head here).
We’ve teamed up with the label to give you a time-limited FKOF Free Download of ZAMZAM23‘s B-side – the dub version of Roll River Jordan Roll. Grab the 320 for the next week (and remember ZamZam doesn’t do digital copies of their releases) until the 7″ drops…
The FKOF review:
“The stereo image of Don Goliath’s vocals fills this dubwise stepper while being guided by a warm and inviting harmonica. The low end adds depth to Alpha & Omega’s alternate mix, while many elements escape their default settings through infectious delay and reverberation usage. The overdriven characteristics of these effects make this take on the original a true sound system tester that travels in a straight line towards Zion. ZamZam Sounds have yet again delivered another quality release – and you can now download the B-side exclusively through FKOF over the next week…”
Peace, love and respect.
