PREVIEW: Duke Dumont at the Gothic Theatre – 10/12/2016
English-DJ Duke Dumont comes to Denver tonight, October 12 for a one-night only performance at the Gothic Theatre in Englewood. Tickets are still available for $25 at axs.com.
Blasé Boys Club Part 1, the inaugural installment in a series of EPs by chart topping and GRAMMY® nominated producer and artist Duke Dumont is released October 2nd 2015 via Astralwerks/Blasé Boys Club. Consisting of four original tracks, Part 1 displays the scope of Duke’s songwriting and production prowess as well as reiterating his well-established gift for memorable, emotive dancefloor hits. Part 1 is available for purchase HERE.
The EP comes just as Duke finishes a sold out UK tour brandishing a new visual-led live show, culminating in a triumphant sold out show at London’s KOKO on Wednesday. He continues to a string of North American dates throughout October (full dates below).
Blasé Boys Club Part 1 is spearheaded by single “Ocean Drive,” which has been a permanent fixture on the iTunes singles and top ten of the Shazam Future Hits charts since being unveiled as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ at the end of July. The video for “Ocean Drive” gained over a million and a half views in just two weeks, while the track is a regular play across BBC Radio 1 and Beats 1, demonstrating that its slick and majestic neon-lit pop is a standout proposition indeed. “Ocean Drive” is Duke’s highest charting U.S. Dance Radio record to date, leaping into the coveted Top 10. The track also claims the title for #1 Breakout at Billboard’s Dance Club Chart this week.
Kicking off with “Ocean Drive,” Blasé Boys Club Part 1 goes on to feature legendary 80s house vocalist Robert Owens on the fittingly titled “Robert Talking,” a grooving 8-minute disco track is like Dumont’s very own homage to Daft Punk’s epic “Giorgio.” Elsewhere, “Melt” backdrops yearningly soulful vocals with a pacific house groove, showcasing a more atmospheric facet of his production. The EP comes full circle with transatlantic smash and festival staple “Won’t Look Back.”
Duke Dumont is a two-time GRAMMY®-nominee for tracks “Need U (100%)” and “I Got U,” both in the category of Best Dance Recording. Duke has racked up 155+ million video views, 100+ streams, and nearly two million single sales.
