PARADISE - DJ FOUNDATION (DEBUT DOUBLE VINYL LP) APRIL 2009
dj foundations debut album is now here
Rough Trade have advance copies in stock at both their London locations and say of the album
dj foundation is a 23 year old resident of mosul, still one of iraq's most troubled cities. from a battered pc he plunders global music and tv, fusing his love of arab pop and western disco with acute news sense and dungeon humour. two years after finding foundation on myspace, metal postcard brings you his debut double vinyl, 'paradise', the first major musical account of the 'war on terror' and the early 21st century.
The album laces addictive dancepop with a huge vocal cast of religious leaders, politicans, pop stars and the public. it's one instane planet under god's groove - from the bullet -stomp of 'all night' to 'alaluyah's religious bedlam, through culture-collisions 'god is dead' and 'ghad', to the final 18 minute 'going out in style'.
