A lot of fans were left disappointed when the EDC Las Vegas 2020 Lineup dropped and Duke Dumont was nowhere to be found as a lot of ravers were hoping he would bring his iconic sounds to the Speedway. But you’re in luck. Duke Dumont at the Shrine Expo Hall was just announced and he’ll be doing a new LIVE show at the famous Los Angeles venue this May.
“I did 150 DJ shows last year. That’s 3 per week, and 110 of them were overseas,” explains Duke Dumont. “The problem is,” he laughs, “I’m not the type of person who can record music on the road.” Quite how the hell the London producer has finished this debut album, Blasé Boys Club, then, is both a total miracle and a tribute to his work ethic. “I try to push myself as hard as I can, and I hope this record represents that.”
In a way, the enormous success of Duke Dumont has somewhat slipped under the radar. So unassuming is Adam George Dyment, that it’s easy to forget he played one of the most pivotal roles in making UK deep house the thundering global juggernaut it is today. When his single ‘Need U 100%’ soared straight to number 1 in March 2013, it became the first UK house track to do so in over a decade, reaching Gold certification, and opening up a gap in the British music consciousness for deep house to really prosper on a massive scale. It’s fair to say that the success of “Need U 100%” blew open a void for other deep house acts like Route 94 and Gorgon City to fill, transcending so many from club favorites to serious chart contenders.
Duke Dumont has played countless festivals and venues over the last 8 years. From EDC Las Vegas to Creamfields to Ultra Music Festival to Escape Psyhco Circus to Lollapalooza to Coachella. Duke has played them all and slayed them all. For those aren’t going to be at Coachella 2020 to catch him in person, here is your other chance to see him in Los Angeles as Goldenvoice presents Duke Dumont at the Shrine Expo Hall on Friday, May 8th.
