This mix includes Adrian Sherwood, the Crispy Horns section and Ghetto Priest on backing vocals.
When Deeder Zaman left Asian Dub Foundation i thought it was the end of the collective, good thing i was wrong… ADF keeps doing music, and since then; Deeder left (us) fans waiting for more Master D’s solo projects..
His first one Rebel Uprising and in 2008 he did Minority Large as a solo project released as a physical product only in Japan.
Minority Large finds the younger Zaman treading largely the same routes as his previous supergroup, only this time he’s largely alone in the roles of writer, programmer, vocalist, guitarist, keyboardist and all round studio badass. Dub, hip-hop, electronica (both gentle and frenzied), and reggae all get adequate representation on what is a crossing of global basement riddims and studio wizardry.
Currently Deeder is working with legendary dub soundman Adrian Sherwood, founder of the On-U-Sound stables on finishing his second album (working title ‘Pride of the Underdog’) which is due for release on On-U-Sound Records in early 2010.
