about

A preview taste of the album is available here...

Following on from 2013's debut long-player, Saturday Shifting, where Gene Dudley played almost every note himself, his second offering is very much a product of the relationships he's built up over the past two years. Most notably these have been with vocalists, and particularly when the group got the chance to tour Europe with Stones Throw artists Myron & E in the summer of 2014. This resulted in E contributing to two vocal cuts to the new album, along with hotly tipped U.S. vocalist Ishtar.

Another collaboration that blossomed was with London powerhouse soul vocalist and acclaimed funk DJ Anne Frankenstein. The pair hooked up for Gene's cover of Richard "Groove" Holmes' No Trouble on the Mountain, released as a 7" single last year. It's a tune that appears on the album alongside two hot new offerings from Dudley and Frankenstein - namely the disco flavoured soul monster Dynamite in the Still of the Night, and mid-tempo funk nugget, Jackpot.

Add to that some classic Dudley horn work on The Arm Wrestling Channel and Do The Cookie Dough Throw, albeit with one eye firmly on the dance floor; some tasty tropical and dub flavours on Tiger Jaw, Stevie Flare and the title track; plus a very cheeky Todd Terje cover (approved by the man himself!) and you have a statement of intent from one of the UK's finest and most exciting producers and multi-instrumentalists.
