GENTLEMAN’S DUB CLUB (GDC) is a 9-piece band that formed in 2006. With a style based in dub, ska and roots reggae, GDC have burst onto the UK circuit, rocking gigs and festivals up and down the country with their super high energy show. Combining tight grooves and a heavyweight sound, Gentleman’s Dub Club bring the party to crowds of all ages hungry for a dance floor workout, with their gigs often ending in a frenzied mosh pit reminiscent of a mid 80’s ska night.
THE NEXTMEN (Dom Search & Brad Baloo) are U.K DJs, producers and vocalists with a trail of mixes, albums and podcasts encompassing club music from many genres, all steeped in a large dose of Hip Hop. They produce music for the perfect party, whether a sweaty styled-out club set, colossal festival-smash, a crafty roof-top hottie beardy rebrand doesn’t come from a swipe right to cutesy playlists from app-land capitalist pop-culture debris.
GARDNA is Bristol MC and host extraordinaire and has been a staple part of the UK scene for the last few years and has steadily built up a solid reputation and bringing the good vibes, among both his fans and his musical peers. Gardna’s passion for sound system culture is undeniable and his skills as a wordsmith have allowed him to approach the music game from a fresh perspective and truly make an impact on the worldwide underground bass circuit.
