Hi brother louie,
I remember that lyric! I'm sure I heard it in 'Theme from S-Express' by S-Express, which was out in England in around 1989. To me it means 'play some music'.
My thinking behind this is that I have often heard DJs talk of 'dropping tunes', which basically means playing songs or music: "I dropped that tune and the place went wild!" would mean "I played that record and everybody loved it!".
Hope that helps.
