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!

The Brim

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.


“It might sound like a confidence trick or a number from the South Pacific soundtrack but The Hilo Bay Halfway is actually the new single off The Gene Dudley Group‘s rather good debut LP Saturday Shifting (released back in July on Wah Wah 45s) on which the authentic sound of tropical funk seems to have been captured by the north Londoner.”

“Got that rawness that i like :)” Daz-I-Kue (Bugz in The Attic/I-Kue Recordings/FSR Radioshow, USA)

“I love GDG! This single doesn’t disappoint. Full support!” DJ Gilla (First Word, UK)

“Firstly, I love the whole album and have been playing tracks from it ever since I first received it and peeps always ask me ‘who is it?’ and ‘how old is it?’. So it’s great to tell them it’s new and by the super soulful and somewhat funky Gene Dudley Group. So now to have some bumping remixes in different styles that will fit into a multitude of different sets and styles has just made my day. All versions are killer and will definitely be going into my digital box. I’m gonna purchase the 45 anyway!” DJ Mr Lob (Australia)

“The production vibe is authentic and these tracks swing like any of the best from the ’60s or 70s. Love that Mall Walk and Alignment.” DJ Tomas (Google Play, XLR8R, USA)

“A great EP! Scrimshires’  work out of Hilo Bay Halfway takes the brass funk original  to dance floor territory while still retaining the spirit. Mall Walk is a great Menahan type of instrumental, and Stac tops off the release with a great collab on Alignment.” Pimpernel Jones (First Word, UK)
