Biography

Adam George Dyment (born 27 August 1982), better known by his stage name Duke Dumont, is a British DJ and deep house producer. He is best known for the singles "Need U (100%)", "I Got U" and "Won't Look Back" which reached Number 1, 1 and 2 in the UK Singles Chart respectively. He owns the record label Blasé Boys Club and has also used it as an alias for production. He has remixed a number of songs, including several which have charted in the United Kingdom. In 2014, "Need U (100%)" was nominated for "Best Dance Recording" for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. 

Duke's early career was mentored by Switch (who has produced for Beyoncé, M.I.A., Santigold) and he made his name remixing pop songs, including Lily Allen's 'The Fear', Mystery Jets' 'Two Doors Down' and Bat for Lashes' 'Daniel'. 

In March 2007 he released his first EP, the 'Regality EP' for Turbo Recordings which was followed in August 2008 by The Dominion Dubs EP on Dubsided. Duke mixed the 2010 'FabricLive.51' compilation album for London nightclub Fabric. 

In 2011 he moved out of London to the Hertfordshire countryside (where his studio overlooks a forest) to focus on original material. 

In 2012, Duke released two EPs on Tiga's Turbo Recordings, 'For Club Play Only Vol. 1' & 'Vol. 2', which were played on radio by Annie Mac & Fearne Cotton on BBC Radio 1, and Trevor Nelson on BBC Radio 1Xtra(source). In the same year he remixed AlunaGeorge's 'Your Drums, Your Love' and Santigold's 'The Keepers'. 

On 31 March 2013, Dumont released the single "Need U (100%)". The song features vocals from Sierra Leonean-born British singer-songwriter A*M*E. The song has topped the UK Singles Chart, and also charted in Belgium and the Netherlands. The official music video, directed by Ian Robertson and starring Rique, has over 14 million YouTube views. 

On 1 July 2013 Pitchfork premiered Duke Dumont's new album track "Hold On", featuring vocals from soul/R&B singer MNEK. 

On 6 December 2013, Annie Mac premiered Duke Dumont's official single "I Got U" featuring Jax Jones. The single was released as the second single from his forthcoming debut album in 2014. The single "I Got U' has peaked at the Number 1 position on the Official U.K. Singles Chart. The song featuring Jax Jones samples the song "My Love Is Your Love". Session singer Kelli-Leigh sings on the Duke Dumont single, although Dumont was inspired by the original recording of the song by Whitney Houston, saying: "It's one of my favourite Whitney songs, especially the later Whitney period. It got to a point (during the recording process) where I thought maybe it might be worth bringing a singer in and changing it but I thought you know what, out of respect as (the track) started off working the song around My Love Is Your Love I kept it in." 

In August 2014 Duke Dumont released Won't Look Back, which reached Number 2 in the UK Charts. 

In February 2015, "I Got U" was nominated for "Best Dance Recording" at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.
