Dry & Heavy – New Creation

First off, just to get it out of the way, Dry & Heavy are a Japanese reggae band. Don’t try and imagine it, it won’t work and you will get the wrong idea entirely. They aren’t the Shonen Knife of the Reggae world. Dry & Heavy are a damn good heavy dub outfit.


They have a big sound, mostly instrumental but when not the vocals from Likkle Mai and Ao Inoue‘s are superb. This is Dry & Heavy‘s third album and they hit the mark every time. There chilled out, echoey bass and drums alongside very danceable grooves. The excellent ‘The Dog & The Chicken‘ is like a dub version of the Theme from the Sweeny (and not in a bad way – it’s fantastic). There are many surprises on this CD including an almost unrecognisable cover of ‘Riders on the storm‘.

Bring back the baking sun for an hour, listen to Dry & Heavy.
