Fabulously funky hotness from WahWah45s posse... gritty as, groovy too. "The Gene Dudley Group represents an outpouring of deep soul and funk music from an obscenely talented 27 year-old multi-instrumentalist residing in North London, Gene Dudley.
Both tracks on the debut release from this one-man band were recorded in Gene's bedroom studio and feature him on trumpet, saxophone, drums, bass, guitar and piano. Both are available now as a free download while we also have beautiful heavyweight 7" vinyl - officially released on April 29th.
Fans of labels like Truth & Soul and Daptone will relish these sonorous soulful offerings, and will no doubt be hotly anticipating the debut long-player, due for release this (northern) summer on Wah Wah 45s.
In the live arena, rather than trying to play all the instruments himself, Gene deploys a quartet of top notch young musicians to help him out (whilst Gene mixes it up between bass and keys throughout the set) as witnessed at the recent Hot 8 Brass Band gig in London, The Gene Dudley Group's debut live show."
