About The Event
We Broke Free and 60 Million Postcards are proud to present:
"UK Reggae at its best" (David Rodigan, BBC 1Xtra). With plays from Craig Charles funk and soul show (6music/ BBC 2).
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.
Inspired by the 'stretch' music of Christian Scott, funk jams of Medeski, Martin and Wood and the high-energy melancholy of Portico Quartet and BBNG. Snazzback approach Hip Hop, Afro-Funk and Psych-Jazz with a free improv sensibility and a collaborative spirit. Their busking street parties and touring continues this summer after a heavy first season, with a new album release scheduled for autumn 2018.
Plus We Broke Free' very own Tor da Force playing a mix of reggae, blue beat, ska, funk and soul.
