#025 Duke Dumont
What constitutes a hit record? In the underground dance world the definition can be very different to one that, say, a major label exec living in LA might use. A genre-defining club track is not a "hit" on everyone's terms. But this week's guest has made records which can unambiguously be associated with the H-word.
Since starting out in the mid 2000s on Tiga's Turbo label, Duke Dumont has established himself as perhaps the leading UK exponent of what might be called 'pop house', and having decamped to Los Angeles a few years ago, he is able to give us a slightly different perspective on the industry to previous guests on the show.
We discuss topics including the mental bandwidth war in social media, the debilitating nature of depression on creativity, soundtracking experiences, and the freedom of writing albums.
This was a great conversation, you will enjoy it!
