Löbe Radiant Dub System was created as simply Löbe in 1996 by Frédéric Luneau. It remained a duo (Luneau and Alexandre Offort) for three years.
In the beginning of 2000, Offort left and two new members (Xavier Coriat and Benoît Lafargue) joined Luneau. The name of the band then evolved to Löbe Radiant Dub System. In 2002, Philippe Maynard joined the band.
