Duke Dumont: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jul 24 2013
Comments

In 2012, Duke Dumont stepped out from behind the mixing console with two For Club Play EPs, and he's been in the spotlight ever since. Known for emotionally charged remixes, Dumont compiles disco, tech-house, and U.K. garage influences into harmonious, spiritual sounds. His 2013 chart breakthrough "Need U (100%)" features plucky, Detroit-inspired synth stabs stacked with a detuned bass rumble and insistent vocals. Latest single "Hold On" (featuring frequent co-writer MNEK) is deep, sultry house wrapped in ghostly melodies. Dumont's taste level is as impeccable as his production is tidy, and he should be well complemented this Saturday by opener Cyril Hahn, who submerges R&B edits and moody rhythms into epic, atmospheric baptisms.
