With his highly anticipated debut album less than a month away, multi-platinum-selling artist Duke Dumont has unveiled new single “Let Me Go,” featuring Australian singer-songwriter Ry X, out today via Astralwerks. Listen BELOW
A powerful track steeped in emotion, “Let Me Go” elegantly pairs Ry X’s soaring vocals with cinematic production that gradually builds in intensity before bursting into more club-focused territories.
It follows on from last month’s poignant single “Love Song,” with both tracks set to feature on the Duke’s long-awaited debut album DUALITY, out on April 17th. Channeling his years of experience into a cohesive record that epitomises his core beliefs, the LP is an honest, cathartic expression of his desire to embody the mentality of a true artist, liberated from genre specifics and scored with his own sonic fingerprint. Pre-order Duality BELOW.
The multi-Grammy-nominated electronic artist has amassed over 2.5 billion streams across his back-catalogue of previous anthems, scoring platinum-selling UK #1s with timeless records such as “Ocean Drive.”
Citing Pearl Jam and Jeff Buckley as his biggest influences, Ry X has previously collaborated with several talented electronic artists such as Frank Wiedemann and Ame. He formed the band Howling with the former, releasing the album Sacred Ground on Ninja Tune / Monkeytown Records. He has since released two solo albums and toured extensively across Europe and North America.
A truly stunning single, “Let Me Go” delivers a well needed dose of musical escapism during these turbulent times.
Duke Dumont is a contemporary electronic music powerhouse. Deeply committed to creating high quality music imbued with emotional depth, Dumont is versatile, extremely adept and hard working. His illustrious career has taken him on tour around the world, many times over, and placed him in the top tier of electronic music artists of his ilk.
Since 2007 Duke Dumont has channeled his deep love for electronic music into a variety of acclaimed releases, moving through pumping electro and vibrant techno to conquer the UK charts with “Need U 100%.” His early releases on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings helped establish his reputation for producing high quality club music that moves the dance floor, physically and emotionally. By 2012 he’d produced two career-defining EPs - For Club Use, Vol 1 and For Club Use, Vol 2. Tracks like “The Giver” cemented Dumont’s rep for catchy hooks, precision arrangement and powerful emotion. A year later he hit the No.1 spot in the UK charts with “Need U (100%) (featuring AME),” demonstrating his ability to merge classic house motifs with first-rate songwriting.
“Need U (100%)” was followed with another UK No.1 “I Got U,” both songs achieving platinum sales. Between 2013 and 2020 he hit the Billboard Dance Chart No.1 with seven singles, including "The Power,” “Won’t Look Back” and “Ocean Drive.” With each release Duke Dumont stayed true to his club roots, achieving widespread success.
