Fedayi Pacha remet en avant un titre issu de "Burning Before Sunset"... et toujours avec mélodica, oud et grande classe. :)
Favorite track: The tower to eternity [ feat. Black Sifichi ] • Fedayi Pacha RMX.
It was back in 2000 that Fedayi Pacha and Martin Nathan initiated the famous remix compilation series entitled Combat Dub. Heading Bangarang then, one of the pioneer collectives of dub in France, they were among the firsts to import there works from many artists from all around the globe. Almost all different contemporary dub styles were represented along the three first volumes, from UK sound-system, to New-York dub-illbiant, including the French scene foundations …
2019, to celebrate Brain Damage career 20th birthday, Martin Nathan opens his whole discography to remix. He then conducts an amazing casting, essentially consisting of iconic producers and international dub leaders (ZionTrain, Vibronics, OBF…), but also of legendary and charismatic singers (Horace Andy, Willi Williams, Harrison Stafford…). Naturally, French producers are strongly represented, all architects of that now worldwide renowned« French dub touch », such as Zenzile, Dub Invaders (High Tone), Dub Addict (Kaly Live Dub), Stand High Patrol, etc…
Though the project aims surely beyond a mere juxtaposition of prestigious names. It indeed intends to reflect 20 years of collaborations, crazy ventures and meetings, that have shaped Brain Damage career into something unique. All different artistic periods of the producer, and each of his 14 albums are represented, from the very first years until most recent works.

With more than 14 albums & 750+ concerts, Brain Damage ventures for 20 years now, into many artistic & stylistic
experiments. Acclaimed as one of the founders of the French dub scene in the late 1990s, he soon appears as a major influence for a whole generation of musicians. But the artist is definitely not among those who forever rest on the models he founded, and he constantly reinvents himself....more
