When it comes to remixes, Duke Dumont has a knack for putting his own stamp on a track and turning it into something fresh and original. He’s often called a producer’s producer and rightfully so. As expressed in a recent interview with The Line of Best Fit, he’s very respectful when it comes to the process and art of music production. The diversity of artists he has remixed (Santigold, Metronomy, ZZT, Bonobo, Mystery Jets) is a testament to his unique style and his respect for all genres of music. His latest gem of a remix is for the ethereal song “Your Drums, Your Love” by AlunaGeorge. It’s a beautifully crafted remix and the combination of AlunaGeorge and Duke Dumont is RED RED HOT.
The “Your Drums, Your Love” EP is out October 15th [Pre-order HERE]
Last Thursday we spoke with our friends and LA transplants Prince Club and Harvard Bass about a little bit of everything. Harvard Bass (Victor) has recently just started his own record label, Bump City Records, and thankfully I was in the know about the PC x HB collab coming out on the new label, so I grabbed the lads for a chat and unsurprisingly it was full of laughs. Max of Prince Club was in the middle of getting tattooed, and the other half of the Canadian duo Zach came and chimed in midway through the talk.
Get in on the talk below, and be sure to chat with us over on Twitter with more artists and record labels every Thursday using the #AskGDD hashtag!
Duke Dumont is back in a big way with the second installment of his For Club Play Only series. He released the first EP in May on Turbo Recordings, and is following it up with two massive tracks called ‘No Money Blues’ and ‘The Giver’. You can pick both up on September 17th.
Sinden has just released his latest single, ‘Keep It 1000,’ this week on his own imprint, Grizzly, and yesterday we saw Fader give out the drum-heavy Techno remix from Night Slugs‘ L-Vis 1990. The first time I listened to it, a sudden sense of anxiety came over me — not positive whether it was a good or bad thing. The constant beat made we wonder if L-Vis called this one a “Construction Remix” because he had a renovation team breaking the walls down in the studio next to him. Personally, I’m a bigger fan of the Duke Dumont remix on this release, but this is still a good one to add to the library nonetheless. Download it below and pick up the 3-track EP on iTunes.
