Hotdrop "Sugar & Spice" (Lafamille Music 2013)

"...Time to celebrate for European Reggae. Not too often one finds such a fine and senstitive reconstruction of Jamaicas late 70s, recalling the times when the seed had already grown to bring us pure musical gold.

The sufferahs moaning in ’Big Disgrace’ ("education of the population in their hands”); the discofunk touch in ’Don´t stop your step’ which echoes ’Regulars’, Third World and even The In-Crowd beats; the smokey pre-digital dancehall found in ’One Day’; ’Dont be late’s stepwise that expands into every dub-station of the planet; and particularly, the joyful ’Over Yonder’s lovers rock, with the souljazz vocals of Camila, the keyboard player, showing that good lovers is not only made in London or Tokio. All these ingredients blend to reveal the universal calling of this underground production which is worthy of merit..."

Hodrop - Dis[cover] Showcase

Greetings! Good news in the reggae-dub planet with Hotdrop’s new release ’Dis[cover] Showcase’ a delightful selection of powerful covers that aim straight to the heart of Jamaican rhythm lovers.

’Dis[cover]’ will rock you with its authentic showcase format, each track has a first vocal part which later gives way to a totally
atmospheric ‘Hotdroppic’ dub.

On this occasion, the Spanish band leaves its mark with a unique covers compilation, often played live by Hotdrop, which renders tribute
to souls classics (William Devaughn, The Spinners) and legendary late 70s reggae singles (Matumbi, Dennis Brown, Inner Circle).

Entirely recorded in Madrid city and mixed analogically in a 8 track device, ‘Dis[cover]’ works as a time machine that brings us these
vintage scented unique covers, never loosing Hotdrop’s refreshing sound.

The record travels from soul grounds with the mellow ‘Be Thankful’, passing the rhythmic soulful-reggae with ‘Bluebeat & Ska’ and the
indomitable ‘I’ll be around’, to end up flowing into the wild Caribbean sound of ‘Should I’ and ‘Reggae Thing’, culminating this musical trip in ‘Straight to the Greencat’s head’, dubwise from the caverns.

Manwel T - Virtual Dub (Dubkey, 2009)

This artist, from the island of Malta, has been involved in the reggae music scene for quite a long time. He is the soul of Reggae Club, one of the first reggae programs on internet radio, and he also started years ago to make his own productions with the original tracks from various projects related to Reggae and Dub.

The elements of the first eight tracks on Manwel T’s second dub album were made available on the web for remixing purposes by Alpha & Omega (UK), Dubmatix (Canada), Hotdrop (Spain) and The Slackers (USA). A quick search on the net would provide you with many different versions of these tunes by all kinds of remixers. The last four tracks on the set were sent to Manwel T for remixing by Soul Remedy (Belgium) and Urban Dub (UK). The styles vary from 60s rocksteady to current steppers. What keeps it all together is Manwel T’s precise mixing style.

’Virtual Dub’ should appeal to all dub fans. Whether you’re into King Tubby or Aba Shanti, this will please you aplenty!

Hotdrop is featuring in this "Virtual Dub" Album with "Thirsty".

VVAA/Hotdrop "It’s a remix ting"

The spanish reggae band strikes back with this original project that has been created thanks to the collaboration of different international artists.

For the occasion, Hotdrop hits us with refreshing versions of some of the tracks included in their first record ’Ready’, made by the inspired hands of several producers.

’It’s a remix ting’ is still scented with jamaican rythms, but also oozes cutting edge sounds such as hip hop or dubstep, surprising and refreshing the spanish reggae scene. This work, purists abstain, is sealed with the style and personality of the following emergent artists from all over the world: Process Rebel (USA), Deeproots & Bean (Romania), Jambassa (Italy), Volfoniq (France), Cut la vis (UK) y Ojah (Spain). The tracks are genuine revisions of the original songs, pure reminiscences of what we first heard in ’Ready’, stating the creative turmoil in which jamaican music is evolving currently.

A unique and adventurous trip across a whole heap of possibilities that will delight the lovers of musical challenges.
