Dry & Heavy is a Japanese dub and reggae band formed in 1991 by drummer Shigemoto Nanao (a.k.a Dry) and bassplayer Takeshi Akimoto (a.k.a Heavy). The name comes from a renowned Burning Spear album of the same name.

What really makes this band notable is one of their female singers Likkle Mai with her wispy ethereal singing voice, her pixie-like crooning proves a likable contrast to the booming bass-heavy music.

Dry & Heavy molds a thick, slow, rumbling dub sound wellgrounded in the classic roots reggae style mixed up with some cool jazz fusion funky electric propelled guitars kinda thing wich just makes you wanna just sit back relax, smile, enjoy and get together with mr doobie!
