Hi Gentlemens Club! How are you doing?
We’re doing great considering the current state of the world. Been staying busy and working harder than ever!

Take us back to the beginning, how did you find your passion of producing electronic music?
We all started at different times but I think I can speak for all of us when I say that listening to early Grime & Dubstep peaked an interest in how the music was made.

You have almost 10 years’ experience of working with electronic dance music. What are your favourite elements within your recent releases that still call back to/is heavily drawn from the original inspiration behind the Gentlemens Club project?
Our newest project “Bones” is a nod to a lot of stuff we are influenced by. The main track is a huge ode to the 80’s era, which we absolutely love. The other tracks are also nods to styles of electronic music we got into as we started producing, like Benga‘s stuff, Pendulum, loads more people too. It was nice to try something different with this one but still keep our style.

You released an EP called “Bones” through DeadBeats. Could you share the creative process behind about this EP?
We really wanted to just explore our sound more and see what we were capable of. The Bones project is what was created! We’re really proud of this one as it really took us out of our comfort zone. We basically made a bunch of music and put it down to four tracks. Don’t worry though, those other tracks are coming out too…

Your “Bones” EP features four vocalists, Takura, MC Spyda, Paige Eliza and Ryan Haynes. How did you end up working with these names?
All of these artists are AMAZING first of all, just wanna say that. Secondly, we basically just reached out to each of them and made those songs together! They’re all super cool and such great artists, it was so natural with each of them. We’ve known Ryan for a while now and we actually toured with him in Australia. Ever since then we said we’d collab one day. This is the first of many together for sure!

What is your favorite song from the EP?
Hard to pick… Gonna have to say…. All of them!

How have you been staying productive during the quarantine period?
We’re self managed so a lot! We do everything you see. All the videos, liasing with labels/managers, content creation, admin, merch design and production, website development, promotion, social media management, and lots more… Oh and we obviously make music at the same time. It’s great! Keeps us very busy every day.

This quarantine period has been hard for music industry so now it’s time to support and support, any interesting new producers you would recommend to follow?
There’s too many to name to be honest! So many new producers have made a name for themselves this year and it’s awesome to see!

What has been your best show you have played?
This is impossible to pick every time we get asked this… We’ve played some amazing places… I’m tryna think but it’s impossible.

Would you like to share something with the followers of Let the Bass Get You?
We know this period is hard and it’s cliche to say “stay positive” and it’s easier said than done… All we’ve gotta say is if you’re not okay, reach out to someone. Look after yourselves xx
