While we wait for the Oct. 13th release of Dirty Heads new album Swim Team, bassist David Foral is continuing to release music of his own. Following up on the drop of his most recent single, Paved The Way, featuring Hip Hop MC Big Nes, Foral returns with “Crash Over Me” alongside female vocalist Rebecca Arscott and Long Beach Dub Allstars horn-player, Tim Wu.
“Crash Over Me” has been released to Spotify, Amazon & Itunes, and is a part of Foral’s Stone Soup Mixtape Vol.2 that will drop August 31st, 2017. The Mix-tape is one long mix of various songs from various artists, producers and DJ’s curated by David to the same tempo and produced to be one long mix that you can vibe out to for whats expected to be 30minutes.
Rebecca Arscott is a solo female artist from Albuquerque, NM who performs a fusion of Reggae, Pop and Soul alongside her backing band One Heart Fyah. In 2016 she released the debut EP Fyah Rising.
Foral tells The Pier: “Last year I was going down the wormhole of endless YouTube videos and stumbled across a video of Rebecca doing a Rihanna cover. Her soulful voice caught my ear and I reached out to her. I wanted to do something in the vein of Sade and thought she’d be a perfect fit.” Foral adds that “‘Crash Over Me’ is a sea of emotional soul that blends current sounds with rhythms of the past.”
David Foral and Tim Wu have been friends for many years and have collaborated on quite a few projects in the past, making this another entry to their joint-catalog. The Stone Soup Mixtape Vol.1 was released August 2016 and came in at 26minutes setting the tone for what is expected to be a series of volumes to be released each year by Foral.
