ZION TRAIN / “Zion Train Mixtape”
Zion Train is a UK dub band that was founded in London in 1990. The core line up was DJ/producer Neil Perch, along with Ben Hamilton, Colin Cod and Dave Tench. Vocalist Molara joined them a couple of years later.
Zion Train became the longest running dub band in the UK and went on to work as a collective not only recording albums, but also starting a record label (Universal Egg), publishing a magazine and even briefly running a music venue. After over ten years and assortment of recordings some of the original members left to pursue other interests. DJ Perch revamped the line up and soldiered on.
In 2007 with a line up of DJ Perch, trumpeter Dave Hake and trombonist Bigga, plus an amalgamation of invited guests, Zion Train released Live As One which won the Jamaican Reggae Grammy for Best Dub Recording. An album of dub remixes of tracks from Live As One has followed the original.
Zion Train is internationally acclaimed and represents one of the most popular dub bands of the last two decades. The Zion Train Mixtape is composed mainly of songs from Live As One and Live As One Remixed. The last two tracks are from a performance in Poland.
