The undisputed leaders of the Dub dance genre pull in to share the love at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall on Saturday.

How have you stayed at the top of your game for over two decades?

A subtle combination of hard work, dedication and good luck over the years is what has kept ZT functioning well -– I like to renew and innovate as much as possible as well as trying new collaborative efforts as often as time and energy allow.

How important is it as an established act in the dub/dance genre to be engaged with underground and emerging music culture?

Absolutely important – new music is the bread that feeds us, energetically and artistically and exposure to new and emergent music remains a great source of positive energy.

How has your sound evolved or changed over the years?

I am constantly trying new technological setups and new collaborations with other musicians – this, along with the shifting musical influences that have informed myself and collaborators over the years, keeps the sound fresh. I do not believe in boundaries or borders in music and refuse to be generically pigeonholed and I think this attitude, combined with the desire to improvise heavily, keeps my sound fresh.

How important is collaborating, do you think, in creating new and unexpected music?

It is of absolute importance – music is a universal language and language is made for the exchange of ideas – without collaboration, exchange is limited.

What do you aim to give an audience in a live performance?

Positive energy, good vibes, something to dance to and a slice of spiritual ‘upliftment.’

What should punters be expecting for the Mullumbimby show?

Hopefully a great and definitely a unique performance of live dub music – the guests that night will be performing with me for the first time and that is always a wonderful experience – the Byron atmosphere is hugely individual and that combination should make for a great night for all (especially me)…

Saturday at Mullum Civic Hall. Doors: 6pm, 16+ event.
