The Drop / Hotsteppas / Skylion

Saturday, December 16, 2017 - 20:30

Grown out of their small-town suburban roots to speak to the trudging nation, The Drop have established themselves touring the UK festival circuit and self releasing a string of singles and EPs, gaining a loyal grassroots following along the way. Marrying jump-up grooves, down & dirty bass, epic walls of sound and clever lyricism they create a mesmeric stage show, captivating the audience from the first track to the reluctant last. 
Taking some time out after a frantic first few years of gigging to perfect their long awaited debut album, they are primed for a return to the stage. The album remains true to the live experience they've developed; it won’t disappoint their expectant fan base, whilst set to impress any untrained ears.
Described as ‘UK Reggae at its best’ (BBC 1Xtra), The Drop’s contemporary take on Jamaican Roots music has been accepted and acclaimed across the board. They have had national radio play so far from Gilles Peterson on BBC Radio 1, Huw Stevens on BBC 6 Music & David Rodigan on BBC Radio 1Xtra & Kiss FM. 

"A dubby lullaby with a dancehall flex to engage your feet as well as you brain." 
- The Skints 

“No, this was not recorded in Kingston Jamaica, this was recorded right here in London, real real fine!” - David Rodigan MBE 

“Explosive... a riotous fusion of rock with reggae, indie songcraft with dub exploration all delivered with no small degree of attitude” - Clash Music Track Of The Day
