Chart topping dance music maestro Duke Dumont returns with new single ‘Won’t Look Back’, to be released in Australia through etcetc on August 29th via Blasé Boys Club / Virgin EMI.
The last year has seen Duke
‘Won’t Look Back’ is a glorious tour-de-force of soulful sun-kissed house, larger than life vocals and the elegance of Duke’s by now signature majestic piano chords, culminating in a simultaneously ecstatic and yearning refrain. Melding together contemporary UK garage with elements of timeless disco and French house, with ‘Won’t Look Back’ Duke Dumont delivers yet again an intelligent and sublime dancefloor classic.
Currently putting the finishing touches on his debut album, Duke has a busy summer head with festival slots including Lovebox, Lollapalooza and Creamfields, along with his own Blasé Boys Club residency at Sankey’s in Ibiza, which will feature an all-star cast of friends and guests.
Duke's transition from an underground “producer’s producer” to one of the pillars of the new UK dance and pop landscape came after a long period honing his craft as DJ and recording artist, having made his name in the electronic and house circuits with cuts such as 'The Giver', releases for Tiga's Turbo Recordings label, and remixes for Lily Allen, HAIM, AlunaGeorge, Bat For Lashes & Tensnake among others.
