THE GENE DUDLEY GROUP / ZAMBIDOOSE REMIXED

Direct iTunes Spotify

Wah Wah 45s’ summer of dub gets into full swing with this foot- friendly12-inch package from The Gene Dudley Group, remixed by a trio of our favourite producers on the planet.

First up, Russian man-of-the-moment Alexander Lay-Farre moulds brassy tropical jam, Do The Cookie Dough Throw, for the discerning modern dance floor. Lay-Far delivers the kind of trademark beats that have helped him become one of the most sought after DJs and producers around, whilst keeping the dub feel that runs throughout this release.

Digital Dub

Then its time for the man like WrongTom to step up to the plate. No stranger to Wah Wah 45s, and a prolific recording artist for Tru Thoughts Records where he delivers reggae and dub outings with a plethora of collaborations including Roots Manuva and The Ragga Twins, Tom comes through here with a classy digital dub version of Gene Dudley’s laid back slice of Island soul, Tiger Jaw.

Last, but certainly not least, BJ Smith (one half of the legendary Smith & Mudd) takes mid-tempo funk nugget Jackpot, featuring the vocals of Miss Anne Frankenstein, and flips it on its head! His re-work is nothing short of an epic Balearic masterpiece – perfect for both those sunrise and sunset moments on the beach this summer!

The original versions of all of these tracks can be found on The Gene Dudley Group’s sophomore LP, Zambidoose– and don’t forget to look out for Gene’s live band at a festival near you soon!

“Hi Wah Wah 45s

It’s summer and it’s time to get down with the GDs – Lay-Far has been known to Futuristica Music for some time (a Electric Conversation remix of Fly Away in 2015) and he’s still hot right now after the album on Talk-Local.  Love the extended Carribean percussive work-out vibe of ‘Do The Cookie Dough Throw).  Def. on the playlist of the July all-dayer.
Talking of summer, beach parties, lazy chill out sessions; make it right with Anne Frankenstein as she hits the Jackpot..oooooooohhhh It’s a cool sound  and i like it’s Hectic Extension lenght at over 7mins – BJ Smith has done what the original version was due for, although unexpected.
My fav though is the Wrongtom dub. Going to be played alongside a Resonators dub very soon.  Love the summer vibe and old skool dubby echo.  Should have been the same lenght at the Jackpot remix?
What a really.. no REALLY strong release as something for all fans of Wah Wah 45s varied approach.  Think this is going to be ideal summer playlist.  Many thanks and well done all.” Gerry Hectic, Futuristica Music, Jazz Chronicles and Secret Garden Party Radio’s Mixcloud Competition Winner 2015 (United Kingdom)

“Gene Dudley are a class act and these remixes do their standing no harm at all.” DJ Osric, RTR FM, www.rtrfm.com.au (Australia)

“The Gene Dudley Group’s debut album, Zambidoose, included one of the highlights of Summer 2015 – a righteous, brass-heavy funk cover of Todd Terje’s nu-disco anthem “Inspector Norse”. Here, other tracks from that set are given a new lease of life via three new remixes. Alexander Lay-Far kicks things off, subtly turning “Do The Cookie Dough Throw” into a righteous chunk of swinging, offbeat Latin house/funk fusion. In contrast, mixing desk maestro Wrongtom delivers a booming, bass-heavy dub reggae interpretation of “Tiger Jaw”, while BJ Smith goes all warm, organic and Balearic on his invitingly sunny mix of “Jackpot”, complete with dreamy vocals from Anne Frankenstein.” juno.co.uk (United Kingdom)
