Dreadzone are a British band whose music is an eclectic fusion of dub, reggae, techno, trance, and folk. They have so far produced five studio albums and one live album.
John Peel championed Dreadzone on BBC Radio 1, and cited Second Light as one of his favourite albums of all time. Tracks from Second Light also dominated Peel's Festive Fifty in 1995, and the band recorded six Peel Sessions between 1993 and 2001.
Dreadzone formed in 1993 when ex-Big Audio Dynamite drummer Greg Roberts teamed up with Tim Bran, who had previously worked as a musician and sound engineer for Julian Cope. The name Dreadzone was suggested to Greg and Tim by Don Letts.
Tim and Greg were soon joined by bassist Leo Williams and keyboardist Dan Donovan, also formerly of Big Audio Dynamite. The band signed to Creation Records in 1993 and released their first album 360°. The following year the band signed to Virgin Records and released their second studio album Second Light. In the meantime, Dreadzone had become a favourite festival act and in June that year played the Dance West at Glastonbury Festival. During these early years their backing vocalists included Melanie Blatt, Denise van Outen and Alison Goldfrapp.
