Fun-da-mental ‘Audio Shrapnel’ XFM Superchunk

fdm_100nations6

First broadcast in December 2001 for the Eddie Temple-Morris & James Hyman program on XFM.  Big respect to DJ Overhaul who constructed the final mix on his jack after my back put me on ice for a few days.  It represents the manner to which we hit gigs in the short time we threw down as the Nation World Service / Audio Shrapnel DJ team, throwing everything into the pile.  (Thanks to Suki for the tracklist)

Fourth World – Flora Purim & Airto Moreira ‘Terra Mae’

returnjourney

An early show of confidence from Tony Thorpe.  Back in the day, he was commissioned to assemble a collection of producers to remix songs from the catalogue of Fourth World, the group led by Flora Purim and her husband Airto Moreira.   Tony lined up a cast including 4Hero, Shut Up & Dance, IG Culture, The Herbalizer, London Elektricity, Fila Brazilia  He also tapped up a two fellas who in the basement where Nation Records operated.  Rich McLean aka DJ Overhaul and I produced two tunes in the studio, this is one of them. With the aforementioned producers involved, we had to go deep into our crates and tapes.  Honored, believe…and also to work with Rich, phew, he had a different head on his shoulders.

KingLMan feat. Earl 16/The Mighty Zulu Nation LV Remix

IMG_5260

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.
