The Drop is a 6-piece live roots reggae act formed in 2008 in the heart of London. They quickly built a reputation for infectious melodies and an authentic heavy roots sound. They hit the festival run last year sharing the stage with acts such as Speech Debelle, Babyhead and Smerins Anti Social Club. They’re currently planning a studio trip to record their first EP and are lined up for another busy year playing at 2010 music festivals.
