Listen: The Gene Dudley Group – I’ve Changed/Inspector Norse
After getting tired today at work of the daily routine of a Dutch jazzy radio station which might as well be named We Play The Same Music Every Single Day FM, I made the excellent decision to switch to the good fellows of Laid Back Radio. I tuned in right before the start of The Gene Dudley Group‘s “Inspector Norse,” and damn, what a track.
I fell in love with Todd Terje’s same-titled track a couple of years ago after hearing it in Trouw (renowned club in Amsterdam, R.I.P.), and this remake by the UK producer and multi-instrumentalist is bananas. His label (Wah Wah 45s) says it best: “a funk driven horn-fest.”
Listen to a preview of both “I’ve Changed” (ft. E of Stones Throw‘s Myron & E) and “Inspector Norse” below. You can pre-order the 7″ here, or wait for Gene’s sophomore LP, Zambidoose, dropping this July on Wah Wah 45s.
