Celebrated British artist Duke Dumont returns with a new track and first of the year. ‘The Chant’ is out now via Club Blasé/EMI, stream here.

The latest in Duke’s reputable ‘For Club Play Only’ underground series, ‘The Chant’ is an artistic statement. An ode to British rave, the new track presents a meticulously crafted palette of arpeggiated vocal sequencing, euphoric trance synths and a textured rhythm section. A warehouse anthem, ‘The Chant’ solidifies Duke’s status as one of the most versatile record producers of our generation.

Speaking on the new track, Duke said “Music is made to be experienced in places. A jointy pop song in your car, listening to the radio on the way to work. Hearing sped up versions of a classic song on your phone scrolling through social media. ‘The Chant’ is there to be played in a muddy field. Conjuring euphoria. Dedicated to all the ravers dancing in muddy fields. Living in the moment and nothing else”.

Although his first release of the year, Duke has steadily and not-so-quietly been building a formidable live show. Since his infamous Coachella 22’ set in which his awe-inspiring visuals coupled with a reconstruction of his music was unveiled, Duke has doubled down on what it means to offer an experience to the listener, truly emphasizing the live experience. Duke’s taken his live show across the globe, with notable shows in Australia, including Splendour In The Grass and America, including The Shrine (LA), The Mirage (NY), and Coachella.

2023 will see Duke continue his ongoing run of shows stateside, with his biggest US LIVE headline set to date at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks on October 27th. Tickets on sale now.

‘The Chant’ arrives a decade on from Need U (100%) feat. A*M*E, which soared straight to number 1
in the UK. It became the first UK house track to do so in over a decade, reaching Platinum certification, and opening up a gap in the British music consciousness for dance music to prosper on a grand scale.

The release of ‘The Chant’ is an example of an artist with over two decades of experience whose artistic integrity stays uncompromised.
