The last year was a busy one for Hotdrop, that were touring in the main cities of Spain and also were heating the waves of many reggae radios across the world. And not only that! The massive will be suprised to know that soon a "Ready" remix compilation will be released, with different collaborations from Romania, USA, France, Spain, etc...Hotdrop is preparing now the tracks of their next album, so stay tuned.

The EP "No Barriers" includes "Thirsty" and "Tell me", the main hits of "Ready", with the particularity of being one of them ("Tell me"), an
unreleased alternaltive mix to that of their first record. The other two brand new tracks in "No Barrierrs" are result of special colaborations. "Whole Heap of Rockers", interpreted by Ranking Forrest and Jah B, evokes the jamaican combination style over the "Tell me" original rhythm.

The other track, "Boat people", has been recorded with Ousmane Ndione a great singer from Senegal, whose sweet voice and lyrics, offers his personal look into the difficulties of migration.

The songs selected for the ocassion not only are an appeling to dance, but also to a more personal inspiration, thanks to the combination o of powerful and hypnotic rhythms with the contrasted vocal styles that give each track a different mood.

The release of "No Barriers" is included in a larger project called "El Ferrocarril Clandestino", that promotes social action to grant inmigrant rights in Spain. Purchasing this record you are helping this network to fight the injustices derived from current inmigration policies.

Enjoy It!
