Fluid Foundation “Foundation” Background:
Fluid Foundation carries themselves as a vibrant mix of reggae, dub, surf and hip hop. The album was recorded at 17th Street Recording studio in Costa Mesa, CA with producer Lew Richards. The album also includes a list of guest appearances that include Pato Banton, Micah Brown, Kevin Offitzer of Stick Figure in addition to Marlon Asher.
As for the song “Foundation,” the group tells The Pier: “’Foundation’ was written about two lovers laying out their foundation of love and their relationship built around it.”
Some of the lyrics boast “Plant a seed and grow as one…Out of love our Foundation”.
“It was one of the first tracks we recorded with Lewis Richards, and kind of set the foundation for the rest of the recording as well. It definitely has a positive vibe full of hope and love, so we made sure to keep that mindset throughout recording, and we think it definitely shows on the final record!”
Their debut album will be made available, October 8th, 2016 from the group’s bandcamp and you can pre-order the record by clicking HERE!
