Multi-platinum record maker Duke Dumont kicks off 2021 with new EP ‘For Club Play Only Pt. 7’, out on Friday 21st May.
A two-track release, the seventh edition of Duke’s iconic ‘For Club Play Only’ series kicks off with ‘Alter Ego’, a deep, seductive dance cut featuring the slick vocals of West Coast talent Channel Tres. On the flip side, ‘Let Me Dance’ is a pumping house jam punctuated by Chicago artist Kid Enigma’s high-energy flow.
His first release of the new year, it follows a 2020 that saw the release of Duke’s acclaimed debut album Duality, a diverse LP that delivered a range of sounds, from 90s breakbeat, to cinematic soundscapes, highlighting his breadth and versatility as a producer. A remix package for the album, Duality Remixed, followed later in the year.
With a back-catalogue that includes international chart no. 1 hits, multi-Grammy nominations and underground house music productions, Duke Dumont’s ability to defy genres is a testament to his artistry.
Over the past decade he has been honing his skills and immersing himself in the infinite world of possibility that can be accessed through key, rhythm, tone, melody and harmony. Duke Dumont has amassed over 3 billion streams across his portfolio of previous anthems, scoring a number of platinum-selling worldwide #1 singles in the process.
Duke Dumont marks his first release of the new year with two star-studded club cuts.

About Duke Dumont:
Hailing from Rayners Lane (London) now residing in Laurel Canyon (LA) , Duke Dumont was initially born deaf. With corrective surgery this directly shaped the way he interprets sounds, with tone and timbre taking precedence over linguistics, which inadvertently shaped his approach to record making. Since then, Duke defied all odds and proved that his well crafted productions either become viable hits or infectious club records, boasting billions of plays across the globe.
Topping the billing on various stages worldwide, with his DJ career starting in London, learning his craft at such iconic institutions as Fabric to Panorama Bar (Berlin) and playing some of the biggest stages from Coachella (USA) , Exit (Serbia) to Splendor In The Grass (Australia).
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 producing records with longevity and soul. If my records can out live me, I can die happy.”
