The Gene Dudley Group represents an outpouring of deep soul and funk music from obscenely talented 27 year-old multi-instrumentalist residing in North London, Gene Dudley.
The debut album, “Saturday Shifting”, released earlier this year, caused quite a stir and quickly gained this deeply soulful producer a new army of fans, with Kenny Dope, Huey Morgan and Daz-I-Kue all singing its praises!
One of the most popular tracks from the album is the up-tempo, tropical flavoured cut, and brand new single, “The Hilo Bay Halfway”. It comes complete with a pair of exclusive remixes – a “Disco Dub Remix” from Gene himself, who uses hand claps, synths and some seriously squelchy bass to take this club monster in another, equally foot friendly direction; and one from label mate Scrimshire, whose afro flavoured guitar licks and quirky keyboard sounds guarantee similar dance floor destruction.
Add to that a brand new song from Gene Dudley, entitled “The Mall Walk”, and the added bonus of Gene’s never before released remix of the Scrimshire classic “Alignment”, featuring the sultry vocals of Stac, and you’ve got a package filled to the brim with serious Wah Wah 45s talent!
Look out for The Gene Dudley Group live, when they support Stones Throw artists Myron & E at London’s Jazz Café in December. There’s much more to come from this new star of the deep funk and soul scene.
