As a run-up to their debut album The Drop have decided to release a 4 track EP which will be available as a free download, with an option to donate. All donations will go towards the cost of finishing the full record which the band have been funding themselves.
The release features 3 distinctive songs, plus one dub version, showing the range and versatility of their sound. The title track 'Turning Around' is the result of a collaboration between The Drop and long-standing roots reggae producer and promoter Satchi Dubworks. This up-beat tune is all about the vibez. Also on the E.P is The Drop’s own version of 'CCTV'; a track originally written by front man Dandelion and Hyperdub's well-established production quartette – LV. It was well received in it's original dub-step form when released by Hyperdub, and now The Drop have done something strangely new by taking the song backwards in style, with the same vocalist, to deliver a stomping roots cover. To top things off it comes with a Dub version from UK roots veteran Nick Manasseh. Lastly, the band demonstrate their truly fresh approach with 'Waiting For'; a song which blurs the lines between indie-rock and reggae. Altogether the EP challenges expectations and builds anticipation of what is still to come from The Drop.
