The second release on our label is about to get out there. I had the pleasure to lock down singer Earl 16 when he came to Tenerife for a show awhile back. I shot the video while in London a few months back, and Alejandro Oñate put in the time to piece the video together. This track is backed with a LV remix of a ‘Abantu’ by the Mighty Zulu Nation. I think it was September 20o1 that we hooked up for the first time, Fun’da’mental toured with this crew, a twelve strong choir from South Africa. I remember seeing them for the first time, at soundcheck for a show we did at Cargo in London; their voices rose majestically over our beats…my mouth was wide open, but no words would come.
FDM Director of Operations, Aki Nawaz went on to produce an album for them, hence how I got my hands on the acapella. Pleased to finally make this remix public. For the record, it will be released July 21st, and is available via my bandcamp site, here. XLR8R review of the original Mighty Zulu Nation album can be read here, Aki did a great job.
