WHO

Lille based Reggae Roots Soundsystem Agobun was created in 2007, taking inspiration from both the local scene (Chalice, Coptic…) and the London Dub sounds (Abashanti, Shaka, Tubbys…). Through the years, the crew has been building a serious underground reputation while featuring as residents for Bass Temple, Early Dub, Lille Dub Allstars and Warrior Charge.

Agobun insists on bringing a quality sound which mixes both power and clarity as well as transmitting an original vibe for each session. They’re currently recording and mixing their own dub plates, gathering palpable influences from the 80’s and 90’s Roots sound.
