about

With their third release, The Drastics show no sign of slowing down. Refining their cutting-edge sound, Waiting comes hard and to-the-point with 12 new tracks. The album drops a perfect mixture of fresh material expanding from dub to vocal to jazz-centric improvisation carrying with it a maturity of sound appealing to reggae and non-reggae heads a like. Regular vocalists MC Zulu and Fada Dougou lend their voices over the tough “Redlight” and catchy “Good Time Tonight”. While local hornsmen Charles Gorczynski (Silences Sumire, Leaves, Colorlist) and Gerald Bailey (Black Bear Combo, Charles Mantis) lend a hand to the horn section.

“If you’re not familiar with The Drastics, you’re missing out on one of the finest dub bands in the country.”
Music Is Our Occupation

“The Drastics are a band that can entertain the reggae fan, the jazz fan, and everyone in between … “
DC Soundclash

“… another easy to listen to disc from the most forward thinking experimental dub act you are likely to find anywhere.” 4.5/5 Stars
Melt Magazine

“… fans need wait no more, the Drastics have finally delivered their masterpiece.”
allMusic Guide

“… with original riddims and melodies abounding and a style as crucial as the best American reggae gets.”
Tom Orr, Reggae-Reviews.Com
