Duke Dumont Signs with Astralwerks for US Album Release
Fresh off the success of 2013’s “Need U (100%)” and the impending release of new single “I Got U,” Duke Dumont has signed to US label Astralwerks for the US release of his debut album later year. Already signed to Virgin EMI in the UK, the British DJ/producer’s Astralwerks signing will see the release of “I Got U” in conjunction with Dumont’s own Blasé Boys Club label on March 18.
Dumont’s is in good company at Astralwerks, with the label providing the US home for a roster of dance acts including Nervo, Tensnake, and Porter Robinson. Label General Manager Glenn Mendlinger expressed his excitement of the move, saying:
“Duke’s signature fusion of underground dance music with wide-ranging pop appeal moves the genre forward without sacrificing credibility and sets him apart as an artist; creating a very exciting opportunity for charting new ground in America.”
A release date for the album has yet to be announced, but fans can head to DukeDumont.com for more information.
