London-based disc jockeys Justin Langlands and Dave Henley first met in 1986, at the peak of the house scene. Under the moniker Blood Brothers they became stalwarts of the genre. Pressure Drop was born with the singles Feeling Good (Big World, 1990), Back To Back (Big World, 1990), Trancefusion (Big World, 1990).

The style changed with the album Upset (Boombastic, 1992), one of the precursors of trip-hop, the praxis (guest singers, guest rappers, guest horn sections) if not the sound (You're Mine).

The singles Everything'll Be Alright Tomorrow, Big Noise and Unify led to Front Row (Marlboro, 1993), a much more subdued statement of work.

The Eps Tearing The Silence (Hard Hands, 1995) and Up Against The Wall (Wall Of Sound, 1995) were more daring with their dark and jazzy backgrounds.

The album Dusk (Cafe Del Mar, 1996)

A platoon of friends plays saxophone, flute, trumpet, harmonica, clarinet on Elusive (Hard Hands, 1997). Unfortunately the choice of singers (Anita Jarrett, Constantine Wier and Martin Fishley) is not the best. My Friend, Got To Be For Real , Silently Bad Minded expertly mix dub, exotica, bebop and Ennio Morricone.

After leaving London they released Tread (2001).

Food Of Love is a career retrospective of sort.

I dj di Londra Justin Langlands e Dave Henley s'incontrarono per la prima volta nel 1986, quando la scena house era al suo apice. Sotto lo pseudonimo Blood Brothers, essi divennero interpeti del genere. Pressure Drop nato con i singoli Feeling Good (Big World, 1990), Back To Back (Big World, 1990) e Trancefusion (Big World, 1990). Lo stile cambiato con l'album Upset (Boombastic, 1992), uno dei precursori del trip-hop per quanto riguarda la prassi esecutiva (cantanti, rapper e sezioni di fiati ospiti) e il suono ( I'm Mine ). I singoli Everything'll Be Alright Tomorrow , Big Noise e Unify hanno portato a Front Row (Marlboro, 1993), una dichiarazione d'intenti molto pi sommessa. The Eps Tearing The Silence (Hard Hands, 1995) e Up Against The Wall (Wall Of Sound, 1995) sono stati pi audaci con il loro background oscuro e jazz. Poi l'album Dusk (Cafe Del Mar, 1996). Un plotone di amici suona il sassofono, il flauto, la tromba, l'armonica, il clarinetto su Elusive (Hard Hands, 1997). Purtroppo la scelta dei cantanti (Anita Jarrett, Constantine Wier e Martin Fishley) non la migliore. My Friend , Got To Be For Real e Silently Bad Minded mescolano sapientemente dub, exotica, bebop ed Ennio Morricone. Dopo aver lasciato Londra, pubblicarono Tread (2001). Food Of Love una sorta di retrospettiva della loro carriera.
