Fat Freddy's Drop is a 7 piece live Dub/Reggae band from Wellington, New Zealand. Founded in 2001, the current lineup consists of DJ Fitchie, Joe Dukie, Toby Chang, HoPepa, Chopper Reedz, Jetlag Johnson, and Dobie Blaze. The name "Fat Freddy's Drop" is a reference to a piece of blotter art that was circulating in the NZ dance scene in the late 90's.
Fat Freddy's Drop's European profile slowly increased between 2003 and the release of their first studio album in 2005. The BBC's Gilles Peterson called "Hope" one of the top tracks of 2003. The band was invited to play at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004. International DJ Magazine listed Fat Freddy's Drop as one of the "top 20 bands to look out for" in 2004.
Live At Roundhouse by Fat Freddy's Drop Audio CD £1. 6. Only 4 left in stock (more on the way). Released in 2001, some four years before before Based on a True Story, Live at the Matterhorn is a completely different beast to their debut studio album. Containing a mere four tracks, what we have here isn't the focused reggae/funk/jazz sounds that we have come to expect from The Drop, but instead some long, drawn out, gentle funky jazz pieces that settle into a groove, and just lay down some lovely rythms.

Recorded in 2001, before the band went on to conquer the globe with ‘Based On A True Story’, it is a raw, live recording which still captures the core elements of the FFD sound. Rumbling bass, choppy guitars and Joe Dukie’s peerless vocals are brought to the fore - it serves as a timely reminder of the elements that have made the band such a force. The four tracks are given one side each of this double LP, with over 70 minutes of music in total
