Formed in 2006, Gentleman’s Dub Club are a 9 piece band from Leeds. As you might have guessed from the name these fellas have built a reputation for putting on incredible high energy live shows blending dub, ska and roots reggae. Swamped with support from the likes of Huw Stephens, Rob Da Bank and Sir David Rodigan their records remain securely in the top 40 reggae charts including their brand new album ‘The Big Smoke’.

Ahead of their set on the Hospitality In The Park main stage we got together with the band to find out their top 5 drum & bass tracks were, here are their choices:


Dj Brockie and Ed Solo – ‘Represents’


M Beat feat General Levy –  ‘Incredible’


Roni Size – ‘Snapshot (Original Mix)’


Ed Rush, Optical & Fierce – ‘Alien Girl’

What can we expect from your set at HITP? Will we get to hear plenty of tracks from ‘The Big Smoke’?

Old and new, with some real fresh ones coming out for the summer time which we’re really excited about. Great to test new material out to a new crowd!

If you were to cover any drum & bass track what would it be and why?

Timeless by Goldie because it’s 21 minutes long and I’d just like to see the look on everyone’s faces when I tell them.

 

Are there any other acts you’re looking forward to catching at Hospitality In The Park? 

High Contrast, Randall, LTJ Bukem

 

What’s a must have on a BBQ menu?
Sea Bass

 

What’s your favourite festival memory?

One of them was at the end of an Irish festival (which will remain nameless for legal reasons) finding an abandoned golf buggy that security had stacked into a ditch, and making a ramp out of the festival wall, and just ragging it around while no one bat an eyelid. Plus seeing Stevie Wonder at Glastonbury in 2010 was quite something. His voice hadn’t changed one bit from the old records my Mum used to play.

We’re so excited to have these guys joining us on Saturday 24th September in Finsbury Park, catch them on the Hospitality stage for what’s expected to be a highly energetic performance. You can check out the full line up HERE and tickets are on sale now via the link below.
