Forelock & Arawak present “To The Foundation/Islander Taking Over”

Sardinian ensamble Forelock & Arawak present the single “To The Foundation” from their second album produced by Paolo Baldini and released via La Tempesta Dub later this year. “To The Foundation” pays a tribute to the heritage of jamaican producers of the 70s and 80s: it was indeed recorded in two takes of direct recording, the first one with the musicians and the second with the vocals and dub mix. All certified by the video-format of Paolo Baldini’s own project DubFiles.

“At this point in time, when the concept of Nation and border is continuously disputed and debated, should we – eternal lovers of an overseas culture – be among those who believe and support such nonsense? “To The Foundation”, in its literal meaning, may sound like an invitation to mental narrow-mindedness, but in fact these foundations will reveal the common denominator among all cultures. To better face the present and future, we must nurture the knowledge of what our ancient and deep past was. Endeavouring to find justice and truth in the mixed-race future of our civilisation might be our only way out. Down with geopolitical borders, long live the cultural meltin’ pot!”, Forelock said.

Check out the tune on all major digital platforms.
