The One Droppers live
ska, rocksteady, reggae, soul, 6t's
The warm buzz of the valves, the scent of spinning vinyls, the sound of a needle moving gently into the deep furrows, delivering offbeat rhythms to the enormous black speakers of a sound system.
What The One Droppers are trying to do is to dust off their the Studio One records and make those sounds alive once again, in another country – and another time.
The core of this band is to reproduce those sounds and to recreate that atmosphere, spacing from early ska to the rocksteady years.
Eight elements with years of experience execute that “one drop” with royal majesty, with their broken calypso lines, deep basses, snapping offbeat, vibrating hammonds, explosive brass section and hot, amazing soul voices, bringing out the best years of the Alpha Boy school in order to generate cool vibes, hard dancing and to shorten the distance to Kingston Town.
Make you dance!
