The Nextmen vs Gentleman's Dub
Pound for Pound
POUND FOR POUND RECORDINGS
‘Pound for Pound’, is a twelve track collaboration between much loved music makers The Nextmen, and Leeds to London lads of live dancefloor destruction, Gentleman’s Dub Club.
This is both a musical masterclass in that uniquely UK tradition, blending dancehall, dub, ska, reggae, roots and rap, and a foray to fields of future fun: meticulously tight and precise production that’s soaked in swagger and sway. This is an album to put on and instantly warm to, and repeat and repeat and repeat. Featuring a raft of raucous guest vocals including Eva Lazarus, Kiko Bun, Joe Dukie (Fat Freddy’s Drop), Chali 2na (Jurassic 5), Hollie Cook, P Diggs (Shapeshifter), Gardna, J Man & Parly B. We’re all aware that The Nextmen know a good groove having been the purveyors of people’s pleasure for two decades deep. Releasing their own albums, setting clubs and festivals ablaze and working with everyone from ZTrip, Public Enemy, Wilkinson, The Pharcyde, Ms Dynamite, Groove Armada, Plan B, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Tippa Irie, Cutty Ranks and a million more, this duo are the doyens of the dancefloor. Nine-piece Gentleman’s Dub Club’s live shows are a legendary mix of unbridled talent, frenzied fun and infectious energy, reflecting their desire for a damn hot dubbed out paradise of pure celebration. Their studio albums carry that same cool to coddle, embracing sounds so wild and free with focus, passion and precision.
