The first disc on ZamZam’s new 12″ offshoot label: Khaliphonic –

To date, the Portland-based D.I.Y. label ‘ZamZam Sounds’ has released 21 formidable 7″s from the broader dubwise spectrum, each one served in limited, vinyl-only editions, screenprinted and presented with attention to detail.

The new label runs similar rules to the 7″ label, except for the expansion onto longer format vinyl, such as this 12″ for example.
Ran by the same people behind the ZamZam label, you can be sure to expect the same quality of music and delivery.

This first release does in no way disappoint – in fact, it’s probably the most striking thing to come out of their laboratory so far –
The unique amalgamation of Colombian ‘Cumbia Roots’ band ‘Los Gaiteros De San Jacinto’ alongside UK dub veteran ‘Adrian Sherwood’ – adding his touch of dubwise into the mix.
The result is fantastic – a set of tracks that will enchant you with each turn of the disc, organic music played with finesse, and mixed with a delicately psychadelic sense of dub and dread.

As the press-sheet aptly puts it ‘A heart-centered psychogeographical journey from the Carribean coast of Colombia through Jamaican and UK dubscapes.’

As fans of the ZamZam label will know, this will be highly collectable stuff – don’t rely on hindsight, because you may regret it. A superb first 12″ release, and a very promising start for the new label.
