Artist Biography Zenzile was born in the late 90’s in France, and are considered as the initiators of so called “dub” french scene along with High tone. French dub is mainly instrumental with rich use of effects and delays like reggae producers used to do with early reggae riddims. Zenzile moved towards rock in their numerous albums and EP’s, and started inviting guest singers Jean Gomis, Jamika Ajalon (who sung the unforgettable Smell The Roses) and David Alderman on “Living in Monochrome” album. They also experimented with eelectronic music on the “Meta Meta EP”, whose Mille Francs Mille Francs had been remixed by Doctor L and Matthew Herbert. On their album “Pawn Shop” released in 2009, reggae riddims came back without moving away from their rock inspiration.
Bass dub reggae is a big thing in France with names like La Phaze, Mei Tei Sho and High Tone. Zenzile is a socially conscious band with a clear political program. They have assumed it their responsibility to get into any field where they feel that their human fellows are persecuted. They are against the politics and politicians who have no regard for human rights and the lives of their fellow people.
Since reggae has assumed the role of peace music, Zenzile has gathered itself under the most appropriate banner to launch their offensive against the world that forgets about its obligations. They are particularly critical of the areas where people can make a difference but they are not doing it because of their own vested interest, rather for the rights and quality of life of every human being.
