The British electro-dub-rock group Dreadzone rose from the remnants of the short-lived Screaming Target, itself an outgrowth of Big Audio Dynamite. A dub band relying heavily on sampling and other elements of electronica, they debuted in on Creation Records with the LP Two years later, they signed with Virgin for their second album Second Light, featuring guest appearances from Mad Professor and Leftfield's Earl It was and would remain their most successful album, reaching number 37 in the U.
Dreadzone were briefly the toast of the town; championed by legendary DJ John Peel on his BBC radio show, they supported Oasis at two of the biggest shows of their career, at Knebworth and Loch Lomond, and their song, Dreadzone - Once Upon A Time Within a Dream," was used on the soundtrack of the hit movie The Saint.
Though they would never again reach these heights of success, Dreadzone's reputation was assured, and for the next two decades they continued to record and release albums to a devoted fan base. Despite various lineup changes, the core members remained constant, and the band's sound changed relatively little, though some albums were heavier and some more mellow, some more electronic and some more organic.
Various featured vocalists were usually present on each album, among them Letts. They eventually achieved full independence in with the launch of their own label Dubwiser, through which Disk - High Hill / The Spirit released their sixth LP, Eye on the Horizon, and all their subsequent albums.
