TRAIN 0F THOUGHT
Pioneering roots technicians Zion Train have shunted dub into the 90s with their digi-dub symphonies, rocked-up ambient versions and echo-
-plumblng house stomps. In their tour-
year history oi proliiic musical collision the north London collective have retained their original roots cred (in system clashes with .lah Shake and Abe ShantH) whilst having been remixed by llave Shaltra and The Drum Club. ‘Vle started oil as a reggae sound system,’ says Zion Train’s Colin. ‘That's the basis. The diiierence is that any other musical lonn is iair gane ior us.’
Zion Train’s pan-global vision extends way beyond the music itseli. “We’re spiritual, yes;’ continues Colin, “but that‘s not to say we go round chanting “llastalarl” all day. it’s sensible spiritualism, an acceptance oi all religions and races.” Beliei maniiests itseli ior Zion Train in provoking the consciousness of their listeners with an emphasis on exploding accepted channels oi communication. ‘We did a
Zion Train video ior one oi our tracks and had someone doing sign language in sync with the vocals. But they weren’t signing the actual lyrics, they were telling the story and mythologies behind the lyrics,’ explains Colin. Zion Train news-sheets ieature statements in a multitude oi languages comparable to the versioned global traces in their music, from the heavily looped pan pipes and percussion on ‘Brazil 70’ to the Himalayan altitude chill oi ‘Killmaniaro’ - both on the album ‘Great Sporting Moments in liub’. ilaliway between the Andes and Seven Sisters road stand Zion Train and it’s this indelinable position they cherish: ‘I suppose it’s strength through diversity,’ reilects Colin, ‘and lots oi bass!’ (Bethan Cole) Zion Train play Slam at The Arches, Glasgow on Fri 28 and Sonora at The
13th ilote, Glasgow on Sun 30. The
Aurora Bora Paradise E? with Zion Train and Diatribe is released in February.
