Foxfirkin Lewisham presents:
ZAIA / Clifford Junior
Entry Requirements: Over 18s only. Photo ID required.
ZAIA are a British dub reggae band with a soul, folk and rock twist.
At its core, ZAIA’s music is inspired by roots reggae and dub both old and new, with influences ranging from Capleton, Gregory Issacs and King Tubby to Gentleman, Chronixx and Protoje. In the song writing process the band's members also draw on their diverse musical backgrounds, incorporating the sounds of Celtic folk, rock, soul, gospel and even drum ‘n’ bass into their own unique brand of dub reggae dance music.
The resulting sound has been described as “a real sun-kissed groove, awash with sparkling brass flourishes and cavernous basslines, but with a deep melodic soulfulness at its heart.”
“...super special. As soon as I heard it I thought 'yeah, getting that on the show!'...” — David Rodigan MBE
On the decks it's Reggae Roast selector & producer Clifford Junior keeping you skanking till late! He takes his influences from The UK bass scene as well as the reggae/dancehall world
