The London house producer and DJ, Duke Dumont has led the charge in bridging the gap between underground club music and radio-friendly hits with his two Grammy nominations for, ‘I Got U’ and ‘Need U (100%)’, is coming to Denver’s The Mission Ballroom this Saturday night, November 26, for a particularly special live set that is destined to bring a big sound from his power on the keys.
In support will be headliners in their own right, a Dirtybird favorite from Bristol, Will Clarke, and Denver’s own, option4 and Josh Fedz. The doors at 7pm, the show at 8pm, for a night full of top-shelf music to dance off that Turkey and recharge.
With singles like ‘Therapy’ from Duke Dumont’s latest album, Duality, and world-renowned singles such as ‘The Power’, ‘Won’t Look Back’ and ‘Ocean Drive’ that topped Billboard’s Dance Club charts to his collaborations with Channel Tres, Gorgon City, Jax Jones, A*M*E, Kid Enigma and Leftwing Kody, attendees can look forward to a fluid selection of deep, piano and tech house for an authentic electronic music experience curated with cutting-edge stage production and from real camaraderie in the studio and Duke’s dedication to music theory since his 2007 debut, the Regality EP for Turbo Recordings.
Throughout the rest of the year people can find Duke Dumont at Art Basel (Miami), ZOUK Nightclub (Las Vegas), Exchange LA and celebrating NYE at Decadence AZ. Next year, Adam is off to Australia.
Prior to Will Clarke‘s set at ARC Music Festival in Chicago alongside Nicole Moudaber, Luciano, Patrick Toppings, Hot Since 82, Lee Foss and once again Channel Tres as well as one of Clarke’s main inspirations, The Martinez Brother, we got the chance to interview him around his Factory 93 release, ‘Sometimes You Gotta Let It Go’, the timeless artists he likes to mix into his sets such as Faithless and Will’s The Barber Shop mix series that has seen guest mixes by Layton Giordani and Reinier Zonneveld, among other wildly good rave legends.
As of the late, Will Clarke has harnessed the vibes from a mystical deep jungle for his latest dance music release on Good Company, ‘New Generation’ as well as premiered a remix of Dubfire’s ‘Sound Bath’ on Suprematic Sounds that gets us excited for the fresh energy he will bring Saturday night.
For roughly 10 years option4 has been a beacon of house music in the Denver music scene. Initially option4 geared his signature touch toward remixing records by revered artists such as Autograf, Elizabeth Rose, James Curd and Kid Astray that garnered substantial support. Then he went on to create highly-circulated originals such as, ‘Lifeline’ and ‘The Art Of The Betrayer’, that lean on more house than tech and more deep than disco.
Last year option4 performed for Northern Nights, Global Dance Festival and Day Trip while this year Brennen has been putting out a new mix series titled, Reflections, showcasing his liberating vibes and beats that just don’t stop; his set at The Mission Ballroom will not be the first time he has supported the Duke.
The Cleveland born, Denver resident Josh Fedz is quickly making a name for himself within the techno and house music scene as a resident DJ for Denver’s 128 Productions. His latest works include collaborations with locals, GS5 for ‘Magnetic’ on Groovy Bone Records and owie for ‘UH OH’.
