Digital Underclass 4:49-------------------------------------------------------- Total Playtime: 57:05Release Notes:Asian Dub Foundation formed in 1993 as an outgrowth of the documentary IdenticalBeat, a film shot at London's Farringdon Community Music House, the site of aseries of summer workshops designed to teach Asian children the essentials ofmusic technology. In charge of the workshops were tutor Aniruddha Das and youthworker John Pandit, also a noted DJ; with one of their students, a 15-year-oldBengali rapper named Deedar Zaman, they soon formed a sound system that theycalled the Asian Dub Foundation. After each adopted an alias -- bassist/tablaplayer Das became Dr. Das, Pandit became Pandit G, and Zaman became Master D-- they gradually evolved into a working band with the 1994 addition of formerHigher Intelligence Agency guitarist Steve Chandra Savale, an innovativeperformer known for tuning his strings to one note like a sitar, turning up thedistortion unit, and playing his instrument with a knife, earning him thenickname "Chandrasonic." Emerging in the midst of considerable anti-Asianviolence throughout Britain, the Foundation's early demos landed them a contractwith Nation Records, and they recorded their debut EP, Conscious, in 1994.Channeling influences ranging from punk to ambient music to Bengali folk songs,Asian Dub Foundation quickly gained a strong fan base not only among clubgoersbut also among the anti-fascist movement, who applauded the group's vocal standagainst racism. After earning a reputation as standout live performers, theFoundation -- who now included dancer Bubble-E and second DJ Sun-J -- wonwidespread acclaim for the 1995 single "Rebel Warrior." Their first full-lengtheffort, Facts and Fictions, followed later that same year, and in 1998 Asian DubFoundation returned with Rafi's Revenge. Community Music appeared in mid-2000,followed later that year by another full-length, R.A.F.I. Subsequent Asian DubFoundation albums have included Enemy of the Enemy (2003) and Tank (2005).
