After finding themselves ‘Lost In Space’ in early 2019, Gentleman’s Dub Club are continuing their voyage through some of the freshest sunshine sounds, and now is the time to unveil a new chapter. Their brand-new studio album ‘Down To Earth’ is out now and it’s gone straight to #1 in the UK iTunes Reggae chart.
To celebrate the release, the Gents will be hosting a live streaming party and Q&A tonight on their YouTube channel
at 6pm UK Time.
After their single ‘Honey’ featuring Hollie Cook hit the sweet spot from the get-go with plays from Steve Lamacq, David Rodigan, Brooklyn Vegan
support, and a mammoth playlisting at FIP (French National Radio), the following singles ‘Night Shift’ feat Gardna and title track ‘Down To Earth’ also resulted in press support from Bonafide, Skiddle and more. Not to mention a B-side of ‘Down To Earth’ includes Josh of The Skints on vocals.
Exploring the diverse and expressive world of reggae over the last few years with their ‘Pound For Pound’ collaboration with The Nextmen, plus their cover of Bill Withers’ ‘Use Me’ featuring Kiko Bun and their mission through time, space and bass in album #7, the Gents are now combining organic reggae roots with their own fresh approach to song-writing and new heights of production. Continuing their strong partnership with the mighty Easy Star Records and having a helping hand from Gardna and Hollie Cook is only ever going to have one outcome, and they would like to invite every single one of you to join them.
On their new album, the Gents added:“The writing of ‘Down To Earth’ coincided with a time not only of international existential crisis, but also of our own personal realisation that the future for live music – the main platform and ultimately life force of GDC - was up in the air. We decided that ‘Down To Earth’ should be a snapshot of that point in time, where everyone was able (for better or worse) to reflect on their role in the world around them and consider the past, present and future inside the vacuum of lockdown. While it’s a deeply personal album, the themes and sentiments on the album are universal, and point towards a future that values love and understanding over conflict and hate.”
