It was a busy 2019 for Asian Dub Foundation with the long awaited reissue of their Mercury Prize nominated 1998 classic Rafi’s Revenge
The reissue garnered ecstatic reviews, all of which agreed that the sound and the message that ADF threw down in 1998 is as relevant now as it was then perhaps even more so. So it’s timely that in 2020 the band are set to release their 9th album “Access Denied” which finds them as uncompromising as ever. The album showcases ADF in full spectrum mode from the tough Jungle Punk sound of "Stealing The Future” and “Mindlock” through to the orchestral meditation of “Realignment” and the reggae lament of the title track.
With guestspots from Greta Thunberg, incendiary Palestinian shamstep warriors 47 Soul,
Chilean revolt’s rap main figure Ana Tijoux and radical UK comedian Stewart Lee, Asian Dub Foundation continue their sonic opposition to the powers that be and “Access Denied” kicks harder and higher than ever.
