Buckle up for bombastic beats on Asian Dub Foundation's newest album More Signal More Noise [Review]

If you're not familiar with Bhangra (a mix of Punjabi folk and Western pop), jungle and dancehall, More Signal More Noise will have you hooked. True to form, Asian Dub Foundation (ADF) mixes these amazing sounds with punk, reggae and rock.

Recorded in just three days right after the band finished touring, the 11 songs breathe with life and are hectic and focused at the same time.

ADF has always been political, but they voice their frustrations through irresistible dance music tinged with Asian flavours.

Semira is a beautiful mid-tempo dub piece dedicated to Semira Adamu, a Nigerian asylum-seeker who was killed by Belgian police; and the powerful Get Lost Bashar includes the original chants of Ibrahim Qashoush, who was murdered after singing a song telling Syrian president Bashar al-Assad to go.

Few bands offer music that's as innovative and energetic as ADF. Fasten your seatbelts for this exciting fusion of some of the best music from East and West.
