This trio of exclusive shows brings together a pair of the hottest performers in the world. It stands out as a rare moment for electronic music and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to catch these legends on the same bill together. These shows will undoubtedly sell out.
Duke Dumont remains a global dance floor force worldwide. To date, he has gathered over two billion total streams and counting. Most recently, his latest single “The Power” [feat. Zak Abel] clocked over 6 million streams with Dancing Astronaut dubbing it, “…light, infectious, and vocal-driven—common ingredients of a Duke Dumont hit designed to perfection.”
Responsible for creating some of the defining sounds and biggest tracks of early and contemporary house music (check out this SPIN article), MK continues to evolve as one of the most in-demand producers and DJs. His latest tracks “There For You” with Gorgon City and current summer hit “Body 2 Body” has racked up global streams in the millions already. Last year MK’s gold-selling single “Back & Forth” peaked at #12 in the Official UK Top 40 Singles Chart and remains a mainstay on streaming playlists everywhere. This was preceded by 2017’s “17,” Kinchen’s most successful career release, amassing just under 300 million Spotify streams to date. Later this year he will release Anabel Englund’s debut EP Messing with Magic as his first official artist offering for his Area10 label via Ultra Music outside of his own productions. His remix with NightLapse for her scintillating single “So Hot” is out now.

About Duke Dumont:
Hailing from London, Duke Dumont was initially born deaf. With corrective surgery, it inadvertently shaped the way he interprets sounds, with tone and timbre taking precedence over words & lyrics and an appreciation for all things audio. Since then, Duke has proved that his cleverly crafted productions either become chart hits or infectious club records, boasting millions of plays across the globe.
Topping the billing on various stages worldwide, Duke’s audience is both defined and refined, with his DJ career starting in London, learning his craft at iconic institutions such as Fabric and Panorama Bar (Berlin) to name a few.
He has since branched out to numerous residences in Ibiza (Amnesia & Sankeys) and Las Vegas where Duke shares his philosophy; “The goal isn’t for record sales, or attention-grabbing tactics. It’s for how long my music can strike a chord with people by producing records with longevity.”
Producer, remixer, DJ and Area10 label boss, Detroit native MK (Marc Kinchen) came to prominence early on in his career with songs like “Always” and “Burning” and records like “4 You” and “Just A Dream” penned under his alter ego 4th Measure Men became some of the most influential house songs of the ‘90s and still remain so today. Along with his iconic complete rework of a song called “Push The Feeling On,” he was able to put a heretofore unknown group on the map. His sound shaped the sound of house in the decade of 90’s house. A look ahead to the early 2000s showed MK sharpening his R&B skills with powerhouses like Will Smith, Quincy Jones and Diane Warren. By 2007 or so, MK was ready for a change again, house was calling him back. So with a fast forward to the 2013 release of MK’s rework of Storm Queen’s “Look Right Through” thascored a UK number #1 on the official singles chart. MK followed the success just one year later with his remix of “My Head Is A Jungle” by Wankelmut & Emma Louise – the Ibiza anthem of 2014.
After that came Bakermat’s rework of gospel great Shirley Caesar’s “Teach Me,” followed by remixes for Rudimental’s “Powerless” featuring Becky Hill, Disclosure’s “White Noise,” Hot Natured’s “Reverse Skydiving,” and Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans,” “Summertime Sadness,” and “West Coast,” as well as remixes for HAIM, Rihanna, Diplo, Tove Lo, Halsey, Mark Ronson, Elderbrook, Mary J Blige, Sam Smith, Sigrid, Ellie Goulding, London Grammar, and many more.
While keeping busy in the studio, MK and Becky Hill decided to do another record together and released the platinum “Piece of Me.” Marc’s next song “17,” released in 2017, also achieved platinum status and to date has streamed over 300 million times on Spotify. Most recent is the gold certified “Back & Forth,” which came with a full complement of incredible mixes and saw its way through as a favorite at festivals and shows such as SW4, We Are FSTVL, Parklife, Amnesia, Pacha, Ushuaia, EDC, WHP, Tomorrowland, and Creamfields – where MK curated his own Area10 stages. Following this string of successful singles, his current offering is “Body 2 Body,” which has already received massive global support.
