Facts And Fictions

Asian Dub Foundation

1995
Rough Trade

The debut album from Asian Dub Foundation heralded an entirely new sound in what was soon to be known as the Asian Underground. Wielding spoken-word samples, snippets of bhangra and classical Indian music, hip hop and jungle beats, and heavy metal guitars — and fronted by a teenage rapper with an uncompromising political stance — Asian Dub Foundation blew in like a typhoon. Their sound would deepen and thicken by the time their next album was released, but Facts & Fictions laid out the foundation of that sound pretty comprehensively.
