Some songs get too big for their own good, and it takes someone injecting some fresh blood into it for you to step back and gain a new perspective on it. GDD™ homie Amtrac has done just that with Duke Dumont and A*M*E’s 100000% smash hit single ‘Need U (100%)’, and he’s provided a new shelf life for a song that you seemingly couldn’t get away from for the first half of 2013.

Reserved with its use of the signature vocals of the original, it’s more dancefloor-oriented, and a pumping little number that would fit nicely in any deep or tech house set. Available for free download via Amtrac’s SoundCloud (and above), I couldn’t be happier to have an excuse to play a rendition of this out once again!

Our LA friends the Bixel Boys have been on a warpath this year with production, giving away literally everything in a stellar strategy of exposure. They finally can celebrate their debut EP, landing themselves a release on famed aussie label Sweat It Out! Records. The 2 tracks are energy driven through the concoction of deeper house, hip hop and techno but with a big room appeal (Red October even samples the classic AOL 56k dial up sound). Fans of everything from Diplo to Digitalism to Duke Dumont will be all over these… listen below and be on the lookout for more to come!

The last few months have been huge for Duke Dumont. With features on almost all of the main music outlets (spotify, beatport, itunes, Vevo to name a few) and tons of press and support from the likes of  Steve Aoki, Armand Van Helden, Porter Robinson, Treasure Fingers, Switch, Clockwork/RL Grime, Todd Edwards, Amtrac, Calvin Harris, and Tommie Sunshine it’s really no surprise that Disclosure have recently joined the ranks of those in support of Dukes biggest track to date “Need U 100%” with AME.

Today on Sara Cox’s BBC Radio 1 live show, the Disclosure brothers were joined by none other than Sam Smith to perform this amazing cover of Duke’s classic tune. With ties to detroit techno, classic disco and and chicago house it’s awesome to see a fantastic track getting the recognition it deserves. Now, if we could only get it onto mainstream radio in the US….

Catch the live performance here - starts at 2:13:00

 

While the commercial dance music sound seems to still be sweeping across the United States like a swarm of locusts, there is an unbelievable amount of tasteful House, Garage, and Bass coming out of the UK, more specifically London, at the moment. Duke Dumont, Bicep, George Fitzgerald, and Dusky should ring a few bells, and there’s a new duo that needs to be included on this list, and they go by the name of Toyboy & Robin. With a solid foot in the House realm, another foot in Bass, and an elbow in R&B, Toyboy & Robin have created a perfect equilibrium of their sound — catchy, grooving, and undeniably danceable. On that note, the gents have put together an impeccable mix for us today, featuring the aforementioned Londoners as well as Nicolas Jaar, Toro y Moi, Todd Edwards, and many more. One of the better mixes I’ve heard in a long time. Make sure to keep an ear out for Toyboy & Robin’s April release “Jaded” in here as well. Top tune. √+

Duke Dumont stormed onto the radars of the entire dance community towards the back half of last year with his chart topping hit ‘The Giver‘ and has not stopped in 2013. He rifled back with a banging Essential Mix on BBC1 as well as reaching the #1 spot on iTunes in the UK with a massive bomb ‘Need U 100%.’ Next Tuesday, he graces the carpet at Bardot in Miami for our weekly Slap & Tickle party alongside residents Troy Kurtz, Santiago Caballero, Panic Bomber, and Pirate Stereo.

The talented sisters of HAIM have released a Duke Dumont edit to their record, “Falling.” HAIM is a band that has been around since ’06, but didn’t start releasing music until recently in 2012. Their sound is often described as nu-folk, a genre that will fit in great with Duke Dumont’s extensive genre-spanning discography. He brings a particularly lighter feel to this edit as compared to some of his recent work that associates with a deeper late night sound. At times there is even a bit of a moombahton beat to the drum pattern. You can pre-order your limited edition pink vinyl copy of this remix EP featuring a remix from Psychemagik here.
