Check out Gentleman’s Dub Club banger ‘Give It Away’, taken from their highly-anticipated debut album ‘Forty Four’ (on Ranking Records) out this autumn.
This is last year’s excellent ‘Open Your Eyes’ EP:
Spawned from the vibrant musical community in Leeds in 2006, the band cite fellow Leedsians Iration Steppas, plus Capleton, The Abyssinians, Culture, Twinkle Brothers, Wayne Smith, Augustus Pablo and Scientist as influences.
But, you’re just as likely to find them digging jazz, soul, garage, house, jungle or electronica, to which the various other projects the band are involved attests – most notably Submotion Orchestra drummer Tommy Evans and Toby Davies, AKA Planas. The band are fast gaining a reputation as one of the most energetic and incendiary live bands in the country – of any genre.
Gentleman’s Dub Club bring the party to crowds of all ages hungry for a dance floor workout, with th…eir gigs often ending in a frenzied mosh pit reminiscent of a mid 80’s ska night.
