Hailing from Rayners Lane (London) now residing in Laurel Canyon (LA) , Duke Dumont was initially born deaf. With corrective surgery this directly shaped the way he interprets sounds, with tone and timbre taking precedence over linguistics, which inadvertently shaped his approach to record making. Since then, Duke defied all odds and proved that his well crafted productions either become viable hits or infectious club records, boasting billions of plays across the globe.
Topping the billing on various stages worldwide, with his DJ career starting in London, learning his craft at such iconic institutions as Fabric to Panorama Bar (Berlin) and playing some of the biggest stages from Coachella (USA) , Exit (Serbia) to Splendor In The Grass (Australia).
He has since branched out to numerous residences in Ibiza (Amnesia & Sankeys) and Las Vegas where Duke shares his philosophy; “The goal isn’t for record sales, or attention-grabbing tactics. It’s for producing records with longevity and soul. If my records can out live me, I can die happy.”
The UK House legend releases the lead single from his acclaimed debut album DUALITY with Glasgow duo Illyus & Barrientos remixing Duke Dumont’s ‘Nightcrawler’,
Keeping the 80s synths and indie guitars from the original, Illyus & Barrientos’ ‘Nightcrawler’ remix adds bumping basslines across a 4×4 beat, cementing the raw and funky rework as a club-ready track. It’s the latest remix to come from Duke Dumont’s DUALITY album – the expansive debut LP that contains the original ‘Nightcrawler’ single alongside other hit tracks including ‘Therapy’, ‘The Power’ and ‘Let Me Go’ – and follows on from last month’s rework from Tensnake.
With stellar releases on labels including Toolroom, Defected and Mother Recordings, as well as remixes for the likes of Kylie Minogue, Gorgon City, Purple Disco Machine and MK, Illyus & Barrientos have established themselves as one of the most in-demand duos in the UK.
