"Double Drop"

The past few week’s we’ve been banging on about Double Drop quite a bit, after headlining Wonderland’s ‘Fall’s Well That Ends Well’ in October, and being revealed as headliner for the Elysian Project, I can’t get enough of these guys.

If you don’t know Double Drop are a 7 piece band that make drum and bass and other such music that you normally expect to come from a laptop, but with real instruments, and in real time.

I promise you, if this is the first time you’ve listened to them, it will not be the last! - Brass Taxx

"Dirty Dancing"

Double Drop is an excitingly eclectic EP with seamless interaction between electronic samples and live instrumentals, topped off with effortlessly cool vocals. Think Utah Jazz played with live instruments and incorporating a London twist for good measure.

From the gritty darkness of 'Rise Up' to the ethereal haziness of 'Passing By', there is more than enough here to keep you entertained and with plenty of upcoming live shows, Double Drop are probably well worth getting to know . - The Digital Fix


Double Drop EP - 2012 / Digital Release

Double Drop have rapidly gained a reputation as one of the most exciting new live electronic/bass music acts in London today. Their ability to perform 100% live without the need for a backing track is what has seen them quickly become a recognised and respected outfit.

Double Drop are a live band playing real instruments in real time to create a real movement. They are 7 musicians who together write music you would usually expect from a computer-based producer. Their shows are a unique experience, each track flowing seamlessly into the next as if they were the slickest of DJs. Taking to the stage at renowned venues Plan B, Brixton Jamm, Hootananny and Lovebox festival, supporting the likes of Submotion Orchestra and Jazzsteppa so early into their career has firmly established them as an enthralling live act.

2012 saw the release of their debut EP throughout which they effortlessly combine their love and knowledge for hip-hop, jazz, dubstep and drum & bass, with a collection of carefully sculpted sounds and samples to create music not restricted by computers, but entirely organic. Produced to reflect the intimate atmosphere experienced during their live shows, the Double Drop EP invites the listener on a sonic journey where pulsating synths and tasteful delays meet live drums and acoustic pianos all the while being gifted with mesmerising vocals and emphatic inner city sax. The flips in musical styles throughout and subsequent shifts in energy make this EP something of a musical time lapse.

During the summer 2013 Double Drop have performed at various venues and festivals across the UK including the one and only Glastonbury festival where they appeared alongside Goldie and Norman Jay on the Hell Stage in Shangri-La (3000+ capacity).

Whilst gigging continuously Double Drop are currently working on a new single to be released in Spring 2014.
