Fifteen years later, Zenzile and High Tone are finally back for the highly expected Zentone Chapter 2! The two most legendary dub groups from France are taking up the challenge a second time and offering us a new album co-produced by Jarring Effects and Black Dub.
Listening to this new opus, if there is one word that comes to mind it is “humanity”. Zentone Chapter 2 was conceived in the midst of a pandemic. The 9 musicians met in Lyon for a week for a studio session. And the least we can say is that this strange period did not impact their creativity! This time around and unlike in 2006, they decided to work without a net with a recorded rehearsal device. No fuss about the placement of the microphones, no headphones, but a setup with a sound system where live and improvisation were the key words. The collective and spontaneity are at the heart of this project. This need for humanity can also be found in the warmth of sound: analog takes precedence, farewell to the cold computer interface between music and humans.
