Most recently nominated for a Best Dance Recording Grammy for his debut single ‘Need U (100%)‘ feat. A*M*E*, Dumont’s new single “I Got U” feat. Jax Jones will see a stateside release through Astralwerks / Blasé Boys Club on March 18th. The #1 HypeMachine and #1 Beatport House charting track already boasts more than 1 million Soundcloud plays in under a month. Brimming with the sun-drenched, deep-house throwback sound that has become Dumont’s hallmark. “I Got U” offers a taste of Dumont’s forthcoming debut album. Synthesizing his influences from techno to UK garage and house, Dumont’s soulful, sun-drenched offerings have united a vast spectrum of music fans, garnering international media accolades, and peer praise from Annie Mac, Erol Alkan, Diplo, Tiesto, Avicii, and more.

Marc Kinchen may be known to some in the dance world as a house icon and legend, but to many others, he is known only by his music and not by his name. From the time his breakthrough remixes of the international hit song, “Push The Feeling On” were released to his latest remixes of Lana Del Rey, Chris Malinchak, Hot Natured and solo projects, MK has been responsible for making ordinary pop records into dance classics. Choosing the path of Producer/Artist over that of a DJ in the early days enabled MK to keep a pretty low profile with much of the general public, however, at the same time, it was a different story in the clubs and dance charts where he was gaining legendary status. Since his return to the scene over the last two years, MK has transformed a whole new series of songs with his uncanny ability to remix and reinvent. Lately his work can be found on the remixes of Lana Del Rey Summertime Sadness and Blue Jeans, Sky Ferreira’s “Everything Is Embarrassing,” Storm Queen’s “Look Right Through,” Dillon’s “Thirteen Thirtyfive” remix by MK and Lee Foss, Chris Malinchak’s “So Good To Me,” Sinead Harnett’s “Got Me,” Hot Natured’s “Forward Motion,” Inner City and Duke Dumont’s upcoming single “Hold Me.” Future projects include his new group, Pleasure State with Anabel Englund and Lee Foss, as well as his own, MK solo album.
