Great music! I really liked the ambience and the voice tones! I hope you keep up the good work and wish you all the luck in the world! Looking forward to listening to other songs! Congratulations!

Boy of Dust review

I always review a song by looking at all its strengths and weaknesses. So this is what I am hearing and reading. The reggae/ska style groove is cool and has a track that isn't to out front to distract from the vocals. Your vocals are clear enough for the listener to understand your message. Obviously a topical song that was inspired by events the writer has experienced and wanted to express. It comes across without much impact though and I would rethink if a simple ska groove is the best way to express the message or whether you could get more impact with a track more aggressive. I mean you're talking of him sitting back with an uzi? The idea is definitely driven with more aggression than the track. Take the track and play it a little harder and then compare? Good luck moving forward.

The whole Gang

Cool! I haven't heard anything this much fun since Sublime, which is a huge compliment coming from me. Harp sure is phenomenally free. Really love the several bandmembers singing together. This thoroughlly danceable song needs to be heard a lot more. I hope it gets somewhere. It deserves to go far. Dig it, man.


Entre le Ska et le reggae, c'est sur un rythme rafraîchissant et entrainant que Zap & the Wires Nous amène avec bon humeur. Mis à part une structure à compléter, le titre est catchy et réussi. Bravo !

Upbeat poetic song , sort of Folk Rap

Great to hear a hot saxophone in the lead spots. Very well recorded...fade out ending. Worth checking out. This song is the type that grows on you, after you hear it you find yourself tapping your foot . Ray Martin Cerimeli


I'm not used to listen ska music style... but this was a very good surprise. A funny song. The sax gives a magic touch. The production sound is more from the 80's. I can't give a 5 because I would like to listen more quality. Good job!

drums too high in the mix

players are pretty tight the vocals i really had to listen hard to get what this was saying never picked it ok song but not as wondere ful as it could be with a little work innunciate your words better it sound like oatmneal in your orifice and that aint good so work on it sirs

Groove On

"Zap & The Wires" has sent me a request to review their song "Boy Of Dust". Sometimes, I will find out later that the artist never sent a request to be reviewed and that Number One Music has sent out an algorithm. Now, I've written a review for another "Zap & The Wires" tune "Subterranean Homesick Blues". As I sorta kinda stated in the "Subterranean Homesick Blues" review, these guys know how to make a song grove! They remind me of the band "WAR". With writing that, when is Cheech & Chong making a new movie? You have the songs! May need to tighten up on the production and sound quality. Groove On...

Got potential

Reviewing songs are often not an easy task and it´s of course also a matter of opinion. This song is no exeption. The biggest challenge with this one is that a lot of the good stuff is covered in crappy sound and a bad mix. Some changes in the arrangement and recorded in a pro studio with a good producer it would be a whole different ballgame. There is a good story to by told here so I really hope to hear this song sometime recorded like it deserve. Keep up the good songwriting. All the best -Kris

Boy Of Dust

I Love The Song.Good Job On Bass, & Alto Sax. The Group Vocals, Are A Great Idea. This Is A Fun Song, Great For The Hard Times Ahead.The Track Volume, And Overall Mix Could Be Better. Try To Spend More Time On The Master Work...

Dust Off

One of the things I enjoy most about Number One Music artists is the newfound ability to hear music from around the world by singers who I'd never have the chance to listen to otherwise. That, in itself, is a great thing. Here, with this song with a strong musical production and well mixed for instruments, vocally the effect is more muddy and lost in translation. I have a feeling this song plays best in a live club setting.

A Good Song

This is a fine song. I like the reggae rhythmn. There should be more reggae in the current music scene. Great saxaphone. There is little I could suggest to improve the song exept perhaps singing the vocals an octave higher to give the song a happier, more positive and more commercial feel. This would give the song a greater chance of being played on the radio which is what it deserves. Apart from the deep vocals this song is fine. Keep on rockin'.
