Written, produced and recorded by Lauber over the last 2 years – his signature hazy sound is still present and on the album – but this time it’s honed, crafted and showcasing a fully developed recording artist, whose deep affinity with the dance music world is unified with sophisticated, classic song structures.”

Following the release of his fiery and ballsy singles ‘Would You’ and ‘Burnin’, Bull Funk Zoo is on a parade and ready to take the rock industry by storm. Raw and uncompromising, ‘Dangerous Radio’ is BFZ’s blindfolded rollercoaster ride of rock, funk, blues, sex and the news, all the while tipping his hat to masters like Jimi Hendrix, Chilli Peppers, Range Against The Machine, Clutch, Frank Zappa and the Sex Pistols.
While previous collaborations featured Eslam Jawad -M.C (former Gorillaz and Wu Tan Clan) and Hamdan Al-Abri, ‘Dangerous Radio’ sees Assaad Lakkis a.k.a. Bull Funk Zoo performing and producing the whole album himself. Assaad describes ‘Dangerous Radio’ as a big bad bull rocking out, fornicating & wildly stompin’ the blues to rubble. Hendrix havin’ a drink with Tom Waits & RATM decided to tear it up.
