Attack of the Zomby

Here is some dub suitably dark and spooky to get you in the mood for Halloween. London based Zomby has a unique sound that melds and fuses various elements from grime, dancehall, bassline, jungle, old-skool rave, kuduro, 8-bit and dub to produce haunting, bubbling bass sounds that, if you crank 'em up enough, are very dance-able (though you may find yourself with a strange urge to do so in the dark in front of a Final Fanstasy III on the SNES).

Zomby is a staple of the London dub scene, and his sonic adventures have won him big praise from Burial and the boys over at Mad Decent, among others. He has raved and MCed round London for years, and is also contributing Music Editor and one of our fave magazines, SuperSuper (for all you Dublin dub heads, SuperSuper is exclusively available in Circus Store and Gallery).

His album Where Were U in 92 is out on Werk Discs on October 24th, just in time to get you killed, raised from the dead, and ready to haunt the hell out of Halloween.
