Indubious has continued to build a solid following through their fusion of dub reggae and EDM, furthering their opportunities to be performing artists in EDM festival markets. Their most recent album, Wake The Lion, gives them the credibility they need to stay afloat in the fast moving industry as it was produced by world famous electronica guru, Gaudi.
Their appearance at this year’s Wakarusa festival marked the band’s first time in Arkansas and only their second time on the east side of the country. Indubious is currently working on their 4th studio album and have plans to release a never before seen video concept in the upcoming “Wake The Lion” video dropping later this month. The trio filmed, directed, and edited the video in southern Oregon.
The band also has plans to premiere a new single in which they collaborated with Jamaican artists, Rootz Underground. According to keyboardist and lyricist, Evton B, “The song’s subject matter is pro organic – anti GMO farming in celebration of the laws that just passed here in southern Oregon in Josephine and Jackson counties banning the propagation of GMO crops.”
Clearly, the band is on an upward climb with plenty of things to look forward too. Be sure to stay updated with the band at the links below to find out any additional shows added on the Indubious Summer 2014, as well as release dates for the new single and music video for “Wake The Lion”!

Between their weekly party and sound system shows that involve the brothers DJing alongside live percussion, they also have a 8-12 piece live band that emphasizes the organic elements, instrumentation, and energy of a live ensemble combined with club heavy beats and textures the weekly party has come to be known for.
