Pressure Drop is a Melbourne reggae-dub band, which was popular around the live music venues in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The band was one of the early pioneers of rock steady, reggae and dub in Australia starting life in Melbourne in 1978. The band filled houses across the city and down the surf coast and offered a new sound to the dance and soul crowd in Melbourne. By the early 1980s the band was experimenting with live dub using on-stage echo chambers and mixing techniques that were new to the Melbourne scene. Those sounds still sound contemporary today.

The core of the original band continues to play an exciting mix of dance, rock-steady, dub and riff-ridden reggae that spans the decades.
