After a long time away from Wire, Central Beatz are back for a new party in the new year. This time, they invite Shogun Audio man Joe Ford. This is all part of the 15 Years of Beatz celebrations.
There is a sense in which the ZamZam Sounds label now acts in the same manner as the wellspring of Islamic mythology from which it takes its name. It is an ever-flowing fount of nourishing sounds, all aimed at engaging the spiritual potential of dub-reggae through modern production techniques.
