ASIAN DUB FOUNDATION’s trademark fusion of punk, electronic beats, reggae, bhangra, and hip-hop has attracted many famous fans, from Primal Scream to Radiohead, Sinead O’Connor to Chuck D, all former touring partners and studio collaborators. In a special BRIC commission, the iconic London band performs the world premiere of its new original live score to George Lucas’ feature directorial debut, THX 1138 (1971), a chilling dystopian fantasy set in an Orwellian future where mood-stabilizing drugs are mandatory, sex is prohibited, and a young Robert Duval quietly rages against the system. Before the film, TAYLOR MCFERRIN layers vocals, beat boxing, samples, and live instruments in a remarkable one-man performance that “builds from his roots deep in ‘60s soul to his vision of future hip-hop.” (Resident Advisor)
