Minneapolis based early Reggae, Soul & Rocksteady band, DROP their first full length on Megalith Records!
Yea that's the sound you hear when the one drops. Fresh new vibes coming from out of the Great Lakes region of the US, but they are anything but watered down. This band is making their presence known on the scene from the get go. Hitting the road right away, recording a smoking hot rekkid and with plans to jump the pond to Europe next year! This band is stepping in all the right directions.
There's definitely a surge of "soul" or "dirty reggae" infused bands coming up over the past few years in the ska scene. It's one thing to dress the part, it's another to "act" it, but if you can't back it with the TUNES then you best not "Get Up In It!". Forming as early as January 2010, the band quickly established their sound of a nice musical blend of Jamaican early reggae, rocksteady and classic American Soul Music. Moving from grungy choppy guitar laden tracks to slow smooth soulful love induced tracks that are reminisent of favorites like "Left With A Broken Heart"...but do not pass the Dropsteppers by as a mimic band, no sir, these guys have the originality to set them apart from the crowd, but the knowledge and aesthetics to showcase their love for all things vintage!
We were attracted to the band from the moment we connected. Both in the way they conducted their business, to the drive and motivation they spoke of and put forth as well as their visual appeal in early looks at their artwork, not to mention those few demo tracks they sent that I think put some rust on my stereo speakers!! (guys you own me a new pair!). Megalith Records are very proud to have the opportunity to big up this band and introduce them to world, and we do me WORLD! The United States cannot contain this beat.
If you are fans of classic players like The Melodians, The Upsetters and Otis Redding as well as modern bands like Megalith's very own Royal City Riot, Deal's Gone Bad and bands like The Aggrolites...then you should already own this!
