Band: ASIAN DUB FOUNDATION
Who: Outspoken and genuine London collective
mixing rapcore, dub, dancehall, ragga, and South
Active: Since 1993 / 10 studio albums (so far)
Press Statement: “The RSD version of Asian Dub Foundation’s latest album “Access Denied”
is being compiled in the wake of the band’s collaboration with comedian Stewart Lee “Comin’ Over Here” unexpectedly hitting No.1 in the official UK Sales chart during the week the UK finally left the European Union. The tune was able to a raise a defiant cheer from a lot of people that have been disgusted by Brexit and its accompanying anti-immigrant rhetoric, and the rest of
the album builds extensively on this theme.
Also, expect two brand new remixes digidub style by Panda Dub and Manudigital and a new version of the album artwork specially designed for the RSD edition. It’s great to be able to re-present the album on record store day as we wholeheartedly support the independent shops keeping alive the wonderful artefact that is the vinyl record, particularly in these times of COVID.”
Turn Up The Volume: A band that matters, a record
that matters, political statements that matter.
