With only two weeks until he hits The Academy, Duke Dumont has soared to the top of both the Irish & UK singles charts with the smash hit I Got U feat. Jax Jones.
In 2013 Dumont topped the UK charts on his newly minted Blasé Boys Club label, with the now Grammy nominated ‘Need U (100%)’ featuring A*M*E* on singing duties & co-written by teenage wonder-kid MNEK. With a chunky low-end, funky stabs and silky vocals this is like an early 90s house classic couched in 2013 techno techniques. In 1988 Inner City would have been jealous of this one. The most played song on Radio 1 / 1Xtra in the UK, #1 on Billboard’s National Club Chart, had Duke performing at over 200 live shows around the world and the official video has now surpassed 17 million views on YouTube.
Having ended last year signing an album deal with Virgin Records, Duke’s been in the studio nailing his debut offering. New single ‘I Got U’, featuring the first Blasé Boys Club signing, fellow producer Jax Jones, promises to shake up the dance too.
