After an intense campaign on social networks, their protest song of Asian Dub Foundation “Comin Over Here”, featuring comedian Stewart Lee, reached No. 1 on the UK single download charts on the very first day of Brexit!
The money raised from “Comin’ Over Here” will be donated to the Kent Refugee Action Network (KRAN), a charity that supports young refugees striving to live independent and successful lives in the community.
Steve “Chandra” Savale, leader of Asian Dub Foundation, exclaimed: “This is an amazing result for a leftfield track that satirises casual anti- immigrant rhetoric. It’s struck a real chord with people because it’s both a tough tune and funny which is a rare combination. We’re happy that this unexpected pairing of one of Britain’s most brilliant comedians and most consistently radical band has raised a defiant smile in very challenging times and it shows that there’s still a lot of people out there that believe the UK should remain an open, progressive and welcoming place. It’s also incredible to think that in terms of actual sales, ie people deciding to buy the track rather than simply engaging a Spotify playlist, we were ahead of Ed Sheeran, Wham and Dua Lipa!”
Breaking language barriers through the music.

Today we have interviewed a new rising star from Jamaica: J Written. The young Artist Jason Rasheed Wright, stage name J Written, was born in 1994 and he was destined for musical prowess from an early age.
Growing up with his mother, father and two sisters, J Written’s life was blighted by financial instability and constant moving around various areas of Kingston, Jamaica.
“I was unable to socialise with my peers because of my parent’s fear of negative influences,” says Written.
“I was forced to stay inside the house with my sisters. This is how I found out writing and reading was an easy way to escape the grey reality. I wrote daily journals and personal articles on the wall of my homes.”
