DROP COLLECTIVE is an ensemble of ten musicians fusing Jamaican music and jazz in a repertoire of own-penned compositions and arrangements, never forgetting the importance of making the audience dance. Antillean rhythms and melodies under the jazz umbrella, but with a reverence for the essence of both traditions. COME SHINE is the second effort of this young band founded in Barcelona in 2016.
The immediate first impression is that of a tight, solid and synchronous sound yet full of details. This instantly activates the mental shortcuts that select the necessary information to understand that it is an outstanding album. A feelingthat accompanies at all times during the ten tracks of the album, eight sung in English and two instrumentals. The jazz education of the musicians, in addition to technique and skill, gives them great ease to submerge themselves in modes and tonalities that, due to their subtleness can go unnoticed at a first listen in some cases, but which form the foundations of the sound of DROP COLLECTIVE
