asian dub foundation

Asian Dub Foundation are an eclectic musical co-operative formed in London in 1993.  Their distinctive sound is a combination of hard ragga-jungle rhythms, indo-dub basslines, sitar- inspired guitars and ‘traditional’ sounds gleaned from their parents’ record collections, shot through with politically conscious lyrics.

The core of the group consists of Steven ‘Chandrasonic’ Savale, Aniruddha ‘Dr’ Das, John ‘DJ Pandit G’ Pandit and Sanjay ‘Sun-J’ Tailor –who are accompanied by an ever changing, eclectic collective of musicians and vocalists both on record and for their formidable, high-energy live performances.

ADF have released 11 albums to date, as well as persuing more innovative musical avenues such as their live rescoring of the films ‘La Haine’ and ‘The Battle Of Algiers’. They also composed the music to the critically acclaimed dub/punk opera ‘Gaddafi: A Living Myth’ performed at the London Colisium in late 2006.
