We are proud to announce ‘Pound for Pound’, 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. This sound – this blend – is in essence both effortless and exciting. It’s heavy and welcome. The raft of raucous guest vocals from a list that warms the heart and loosens the layers is at the same time intense, charming and captivating. These names need next to no further navigation – Eva Lazarus, Kiko Bun, Joe Dukie (Fat Freddy’s Drop), Chali 2na (Jurassic 5), Hollie Cook, P Digsss (Shapeshifter), Gardna, J Man & Parly B – these masters making manna will swerve your ears from sweet to sweaty, rolling golden boozy banging joints that force the fancy from hips to hands in the air.

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 Z-Trip, 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.

Imagine the joy that’s been made from this creative chorus of The Nextmen vs Gentleman’s Dub Club. A collaboration that has produced the brilliant Pound For Pound, big tunes, easy on the ears that will lovingly linger on many, many soundsystems for the foreseeable future.

Don’t sleep on it, we’re all in this together.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

- What is a stem?

Stems are the separate audio files for each of the individual parts contained within in a recording.
The Stems are dry and free from any effects, which enables you to create your own cosmic soundscapes by adding reverb or delay to each instrument separately.

- What is contained in each track?

The Stem pack for Rudeboy contains 24 bit / 44.1kHz WAV audio for:
Drums / Percussion / Bass / Piano & Guitar Chops / Organ Bubble / Vocal / FX

The tracks are live performances from start to finish, including full arrangements complete with intros and fills.

- I have recorded a mix using these stems. Can I release it?

Unfortunately, you won’t be allowed to release any recordings you have made using these stems.
Sampling is also prohibited. These are designed as an education tool for people to experience the joy and endless possibilities of Dubbing.

You cannot sample the Acapella for other recordings or releases, even if you have made the instrumental.
