The Gene Dudley Group – Saturday Shifting

Fresh from the Wah Wah 45s camp, comes the one-man-music-machine that is Gene Dudley, aka The Gene Dudley Group, with the debut album; Saturday Shifting – a soul-infused throw-down with killer amounts of character.

The debut album, Saturday Shifting, was recorded in a cupboard in Muswell Hill, North London, and features the man himself on; trumpet, saxophone, drums, bass, guitar and piano. On a couple of occasions, though, Gene had to budge over to allow fellow musicians Ewan Whyte and Tom Jackson to fit in and play a solo or two, but other than that, everything you hear on this album comes from the mind, mouth, fingers and heart of Mr. Gene Dudley Esq.

Synthetic Epiphany lists a broad taste in music that has resulted in him producing tracks from a plethora of different genres. Artists like Burial, Skream and Digital Mystikz influence him into the dark, atmospheric side of Dubstep and Garage, but playing a variety of instruments such as the guitar and piano, and listening to a fair bit of classical and ambient music he mentions really gave him the love of melody. Good Lad!
