Fatima Al Qadiri - Asiatisch out now on Hyperdub.
Fatima Al Qadiri is a New York-based artist and musician who has been making slow, steady waves for a while, first with her ‘Genre-Specific Xperience’ and ‘Desert Strike’ EPs, and more recently with grime-meets-R&B supergroup Future Brown. Asiatisch’ is her long awaited debut album, and, while it marks a conceptual departure from her two previous EPs, it’s her most polished and exciting work yet. ‘Asiatisch’ is a cohesive, yet complex album, playing on an idea of an imagined, hyperreal China as seen from the West
Shanzhai', the opening track of Fatima Al Qadiri's debut album Asiatisch, takes its title from a Chinese term used to describe counterfeit Western goods. Much like the Apple stores, we might have never known the difference. One can see how "shanzhai" might appeal to Al Qadiri, both as a concept and also on a more personal level.

Fatima Al Qadiri (born July, 1981) is a Senegal-born, Kuwait-raised composer and conceptual artist, currently based in Berlin, Germany. She is interested in exploring the experience of war, memory, Western perceptions of other cultures, and sociocultural identity through her work. She is a member of the group Future Brown. Fatima Al Qadiri is the daughter of Mohammed Al Qadiri, a former Kuwaiti diplomat and writer, and Thuraya Al-Baqsami, an internationally acclaimed artist and writer
Fatima Al Qadiri - Asiatisch "I've never been to China. I only know what the West is telling me about China," Fatima Al Qadiri recently told Pitchfork while discussing her debut album. That cultural disconnect is the central tenet of Asiatisch, a record that takes the listener on a journey through "Imagined China"-the country as portrayed in Western media. Asiatisch aims to expand on sinogrime, a loose thread of grime where artists who knew very little about China clumsily appropriated Eastern scales and instrumentation.

Fatima Al Qadiri was born in Senegal to Russian parents, raised in Kuwait and now lives in Brooklyn. Her backstory mirrors the eclecticism on Asiatisch, her debut album. Crossing international datelines has always been her way, as the soundscapes on previous releases for Tri Angle and Uno demonstrated. Here the sometimes Visionist and Future Brown collaborator, producer and composer looks to the East and, specifically, Western perceptions of what she calls imagined China.
Multidisciplinary artist Fatima Al Qadiri aligns with Hyperdub to release Asiatisch, a keenly anticipated debut album that's described as a "simulated road trip through an imagined China". First coming to prominence on the UNO label in 2011, Al Qadiri has subsequently provoked critical acclaim for the 2012 Desert Strike EP for Fade To Mind that played on her time spent living in Kuwait as a child, while her work under the Ayshay moniker for Tri Angle explored vocals in a unique manner
