Duke Dumont is well known as a bill topping DJ and acclaimed record producer extraordinaire. The Grammy nominated, chart-topping artist now readies to add yet another notch on his belt, with the announcement of his debut live shows.
Featuring, a cast of musicians from Duke's Blasé Boys Club collective, the performances will provide a first opportunity to sample exclusive and unheard material from his eagerly-awaited debut album. The shows were devised in collaboration with the team responsible for Disclosure's stage production, and promise to incorporate bespoke audio-visual elements. Special guests and collaborators can also be expected.
Marking the news, Duke Dumont today shares a special, self created Dub edit of his forthcoming single 'Won't Look Back', a propulsive, snare-addled, must-hear version for any fan of the original track (listen above).
The first live date comes August 20th at London's Oslo. The start of October will see Duke playing Glasgow's Art School, Village Underground in London and The Warehouse Project in Manchester - a show that sold out in a head-spinning 15 minutes from going on sale. Following will be handful of select European dates in November (full dates below).
Meanwhile, 'Won't Look Back', the new single from Duke Dumont continues to assert itself as one of the years biggest emerging anthems. Currently#2 in the Shazam Future Hits chart, topping the Hype Machine chart, clocking over 5 million plays online, and dominating the club charts - the infectious pull of Duke's latest offering is soundly across the board.
