Fatima Al Qadiri Details Debut Album for Hyperdub
- Words: Melkorka Licea
After announcing the imminent arrival of her forthcoming debut album for Hyperdub, rising Brooklyn-based producer Fatima Al Qadiri has officially released the particulars of her Asiatisch LP. The 10-track record is set to land on May 5, and is said to present a "simulated road trip through an imagined China," revolving around "the fantasies of East Asia as refracted through pulpy Western pop culture.” Oddly enough, Asiatisch's opening track "Shanzhai" is a cover of Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U" with "nonsensical Mandarin" lyrics.
The artwork and tracklist for Fatima Al Qadiri's Asiatisch LP can be found below before it arrives in early May via Hyperdub.
