The British dance group Dreadzone rose from the remnants of the short-lived Screaming Target, itself an outgrowth of Big Audio Dynamite. Screaming Target comprised Don Letts, Greg Roberts and Leo Williams, in collaboration with producer and remixer Tim Bran; when Letts exited, Bran signed on with the team of Roberts and Williams, and the trio rechristened themselves Dreadzone. A dub band relying heavily on sampling and other elements of electronica, they debuted in 1993 with the LP 360°. Two years later, Second Light featured guest appearances from Mad Professor and Leftfield's Earl 16; "Little Britain," the trio's breakthrough U.K. hit, followed in 1996, with the LP Biological Radio appearing the next year.
