Formed in 1993 by John Pandit aka Pandit G (turntables), Deeder Zaman aka Master D (vocals) and Aniruddha Das aka Dr Das (bass), later joined by Sanjay Tailor aka Sun-J (midi, soundeffects), Steve Chandra Savale aka Chandrasonic (guitar and adf mastermind) and Bubble-E (dancer). Master D left the band in 2000, shortly after that the band was joined by new members: Pritphal Rajput aka Cyber (dhol, tabla), Rocky Singh (drums), MC Spex (vocals), MC Lord Kimo and Akhtar Ahmed aka Aktarv8r (vocals), the latter recruited from the band’s ongoing education project ADFED. In 2005 with the release of ‘Tank’ the band was joined by Ghetto Priest. In August 2007 Asian Dub Foundation started playing with two new vocalists, Al Rumjen (previously with King Prawn) and Aktarv8r returned after MC Spex was asked to leave the band. In November and December 2007 Asian Dub Foundation recorded a new album, Punkara, that was released in spring 2008. The current line-up of the band consists of Chandrasonic, Sun-J, Al Rumjen, Cyber, Aktarv8r, Pandit G and bassist Martin Savale (C-Sonic’s brother).

They describe their sound as a mix of “…hard ragga-jungle rhythms, indo-dub basslines, searing sitar- inspired guitars and ‘traditional’ sounds gleaned from their parents’ record collections, shot through with fast-chat conscious lyrics..

Most of their lyrics are politically oriented. « hide
