Formed in 2006 and now celebrating their tenth year as a nine-
piece, Gentlemans Dub Club initially came together as a dub
band, having been inspired by the scene in Leeds. Merging
together dub, ska, reggae and electronic influences, it didnt take
long for the infectious sounds of GDC to become widespread,
with their debut EP 'Members Only' taking the number one spot
on the iTunes Reggae charts and getting radio love and support
from David Rodigan.
The 'Open Your Eyes' EP (2012) saw the groups iconic 'High
Grade' single gain cult status, and following on from this came
their first album 'FOURtyFOUR'. With their reputation taking
a strong hold, Gentlemans Dub Club racked up additional, prolific Radio 1 support, backed P Money in a BBC Maida Vale session for Mistajam and begin notching up countless live shows with their unshakeable energy. To date, the band have played numerous international festivals, including Sierra Nevada World Festival (USA), Glastonbury and Secret Garden Party (UK), Outlook Festival (Croatia), Summer Jam (Germany) and Ostroda Reggae Festival (Poland), reaching more than 40 appearance a year.
Their second album 'The Big Smoke' landed late in 2015 on US
label Easy Star, with them performing excerpts for David
Rodigan back at Maida Vale. The distinctive, creatively charged
sounds of the Club have hit over 3 million YouTube plays and
inspired remixes from Prince Fatty, Nextmen and Manasseh,
whilst they have taken tunes from the likes of London Elektricity
and Alex Clare to put their own spin on.
