Black Obsidian Sound System

Black Obsidian Sound System (B.O.S.S) is a London based QTIBIPOC sound system formed in 2018, bringing together 15 individuals who work in radical sound, art and activism. We build upon the rich legacy of sound system culture both locally and across the African diaspora, whilst making a mark in what has been an overwhelmingly straight cis male dominated space. Our work includes renting the system to the community at subsidised rates or for free, technical workshops, live performance events, club nights, art installations and various creative commissions including a short film ‘Collective Hum’ (2019) for LUX & the ICO. Our primary aim is to provide amplification of the collective struggles within our communities and beyond.
