One Drop plays reggae, punk, dancehall, dub and ska with an intensity that evinces their punk rock roots. If you want to see a professional, polished and flawless performance, One Drop is not what you are looking for. If you want to hear music that is raw, entertaining and unpredictable played by a crew of seriously talented maniacs who are almost as surprised as you are, this is your chance.
Contrast and variety are integral parts of the One Drop sound. Live, they will pack the floor with deep dub and reggae and then turn it into an unplanned mosh pit by dropping in to fast punk rock. One Drop laid down three epic self-produced albums, known for their dynamic sound - switching styles at every track mark; visiting everything from reggae to hip-hop and from dub to punk and nailing it every time.
Before taking a brief 10-year break, One Drop gained friends and fans with three Western Canadian tours as well as a West Coast tour to Southern California and back. They have shared stages with acts such as The Slackers, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Voodoo Glow Skulls, The Black Halos, Warsaw Pack, Chris Murray, The Mad Caddies, The Aggrolites, The Kingpins, Kia Kadiri, The Toasters, The Allentons, The Rebel Spell & The Flatliners. One Drop’s cover of Desmond Dekker’s Problems was added to the tribute album Unity.
