Please tell us who is Foundation Sound and where are you from ?
I am Ras Zebulon, Headfounder of Foundation Sound. The Sound born, grow & build, in the north of the Netherlands, place called Hoogezand (Groningen).
Foundation consists of 5 members incl. I self.
Your sound has been running long long time. When and where was the first session for Foundation Sound?
Foundation Sound' first session was in the year 2000 in Groningen. Actually I play sound since 1985 at the age of 17 alongside a Bredda called Daddy Ganja. We formed "The Ruler Posse" together. I use to be a "Toaster/ DJ" back in the days.
The Selector plays a tune, Plays the version after & then there were several Singers & Toasters who sang & chanted lyrics on that same riddim.
Due to circumstances I paused from '92 till '99. Picked it up from '99 when I did run a little Reggae Bar called "Unity". In the year 2000 "Ras Bas" invited I to play ina one dance. I took the invitation but told him not to put I name on the flyer dwl 😅 After that particular session Ras Bas seh ; Next time I put your name as a worthy DJ on the flyer!
Why is it called ‘Foundation Sound’?
Due to I musical past I decided; FOUNDATION
In October you organised the 1st ever ‘Who the crown fits..’ SoundClash in the city of Amsterdam bringing 2 international sounds and let them clash. How was this first edition in your opinion? Where you satisfied ?
Amsterdam Soundclash was Epic! We had people travelling from allover Europe,
Switserland, Sweden, Italy, France, Belgium, Germany etc. Even from Israël & USA.
We got positive feedback worldwide!
So Yeah, we are well satisfied & there will be definately another & a next & some more editions 😃Have to Big Up Sensiriti Sound & Jah Cage as we formed ASC "Who The Crown Fits" together for the love of Soundclash.
The Amsterdam Soundclash emerged after removing the War ina East Clash from Holland to Germany. What was the reasons why ‘War ina East’ is taking place in Germany now? I think that question is not for I to answer
Will there be a Soundclash in Amsterdam again in 2018 ?
#Mark The Date On Your Calender #The 6th Of October 2018 ✔
#Amsterdam Is Again The Place To Be
What was your first encounter with the sweet reggae music ?

What role does Rastafari play in your daily life ? We saw on facebook you were at the Jamrock reggaecruise, a dream for a lot of (dutch) reggae fans.. You ‘just’ visited the cruise of were you playing tunes as well ?
I see I self as a Rasta. Rasta is a way of life which I try to live to the fullest.Its not an easy road but JAH Guide I thru.
We saw on facebook you were at the Jamrock reggaecruise, a dream for a lot of (dutch) reggae fans.. You ‘just’ visited the cruise of were you playing tunes as well ? Jamrock Cruise was lit 🔥I was just a visitor... I think its a dream for everyone who caught the "Reggae Mylitis".
Speaking for I self, Reggae was always a part of I life... The whole concept of the cruise...Just awesome. Totally different experience from a regular festival or stageshow. Reggae on the sea sailing to Jamaica is just a different vibe.
The Jamrock Cruise sailed from Miami to Ochi Rios first & to Montego Bay the following day after. Meet & Greet people who are sharing the same passion which is Reggae. Even outta the cruise speakers Reggae did a beat. Vegan food on board....
I would seh almost perfect.
