DESCRIPTION

ASIAN DUB FOUNDATION
La storica band inglese degli Asian Dub Foundation arriva al Medimex 2019 nel ventennale del loro disco seminale “Rafi’s Revenge”, ed in una fase di grande attivismo nella campagne ecologiste di Extinction Rebellion. Il loro nuovo brano “Youtquake bt1 (Great Speaks)” mette in musica un discorso di Great Thunberg sul riscaldamento globale.
Con gli ADF a Taranto ci sarà un ospite d’eccezione: Adrian Sherwood, leggendario producer e dubmaster britannico, sarà il fonico live plasmando il suono della band con il suo tocco magico al mixer.
The Asian Dub Foundation was founded in London in 1993 at London’s Farrington Community Music House, an organization in which bassist Dr Das and dj Pandit J taught Asian children the fundamentals of techno music. In the school the two detected some young talents, including Chandrasonic (guitar) and Sun J, an expert in electronic instrumentation. Their sound, influenced by the use of electronics, was immediately perceived as one of the most creative and original of the English scene.
It was the beginning of a career that will take them to the top of the international music scene, with award-winning legendary albums. One of them “Rafi’s Revenge” of 1998, nominated the year of release for the Mercury Prize and recently re-released on the occasion of its twentieth anniversary for Believe Music.
A musical background mainly made up of fast electro-dubs, drum’n’bass and oriental sounds, but in this set accompanied by a growing Jamaican contamination, as already announced by the previous and successful “ENEMY OF THE ENEMY”, of 2002. The following albums such as ‘Punkara’, ‘A History Of Now’ and ‘More Signal More Noise’ will mark an evolution of their music. The band is currently completing work to get prepared for their return on the music scene with an album of unreleased songs.
RAFI’S REVENGE
Their unmistakable sound is a combination of hard jungle rhythms, indu-dub bass lines, energy and punk rock guitars, poignant sitars and Indian samples, supported by militant lyrics shot in the furious and fast style of rap and reggae! Recognized as one of the best live bands in the world, in their long history the Asian Dub Foundation have shared the stage with artists such as Rage Against The Machine, The Cure and Radiohead: a transversal and universal appeal for a band that is simply unique and always in tune with the time. The current Asian Dub Foundation line-up maintains a relatively simple but very effective structure. It marks the return to the line-up of bassist and founder DR DAS and singer Ghetto Priest, as well as the entry of a new member, flutist and beatboxer Nathan Flutebox Lee.
