DUKE DUMONT

Before 2012 Duke Dumont was known as a 'producer's producer'. He was the name on a 12" record the DJ knew to reach for when he wanted to please the crowd, without them knowing who had constructed the mesmerising sonic confection they were dancing too.

In 2012, two EPs on Tiga's Turbo Recordings (with whom Duke has had a long standing relationship) changed all that. 'For Club Play Vol. 1 & 2' offered up sweet ecstatic deep house & UK bass cuts that have united people across the spectrum of music, from early club adopters like Annie Mac, Erol Alkan, Diplo, Martyn and Jackmaster to Fearne Cotton on daytime Radio 1, Trevor Nelson on 1xtra and even podcasts by Tiesto and Avicci. On some nights in Duke's beloved Fabric London, you would hear the anthemic 'The Giver' being played in all three rooms at the same time.

Duke's early career was mentored by Switch (last sighted producing for Beyoncé) and he made his name as the 'go-to' man to remake a pop song for the dance floor (Lily Allen and Bat For Lashes were notable clients). In 2011, he moved out of London to the countryside (Hertfordshire, where his studio overlooks a forest) to focus on his original material.

Synthesizing his influences from techno to UK garage and house he brought back goodies from this zen-like exile. 'For Club Play Only Vol. 1' was released in April 2012 on Turbo. With 'Street Walker' and 'Thunderclap' on there, it alerted the heads to the Duke movement and received support from the likes of Jamie Jones and Simian Mobile Disco.

Remixes for AlunaGeorge and Santigold quickly followed, then in August 'For Club Play Only Vol.2' featuring 'No Money Blues' and 'The Giver' made Duke the man to watch. 'The producer's producer' had become the 'people's producer'.

'Need U (100%)' features 17 year-old starlet AME on singing duties. With a chunky low-end, funky stabs and silky vocals this is like an early 90s house classic couched in 2013 techno techniques. In 1988 Inner City would have been jealous of this one.

Co-written by teenage wonder-kid MNEK (who recently sung on Rudimental's 'Spoons' with Syron) the Duke will release 'Need U (100%)' on his newly minted Blasé Boys Club label.

MK: MARC KINCHEN

Whether you are listening to his UK Number 4 remix of My Head is a Jungle, or his take on Disclosure, Rudimental, Lana Del Rey, Sam Smith, Duke Dumont, Jodeci or his UK Number 1 version of "Look Right Through," it is more than likely that you already know MK or Marc Kinchen. In truth, MK has actually been entertaining us all on the dancefloor since his remix of The Nightcrawlers came out on it's own and then again through being sampled for Pitbull's "Hotel Room" version more than a decade later from when the original MK version was released. Marc Kinchen's talents go beyond that of just a classic house producer or remixer; he is an artist, producer, DJ, songwriter and an internationally respected name in the worlds of R&B and pop as well as Dance. MK has long pushed the boundaries of musical genres in ways that have earned him what some call legendary status.

As a teenager growing up in Detroit, MK was befriended by one of the iconic Techno originators, Kevin Saunderson. Kevin quickly took on the role of mentor and big brother, giving Marc the keys to his already infamous, Detroit KMS Studios. During those early years, MK chose to follow the path of Producer/Artist over that of a DJ. By staying behind the scenes in the studio, he was able to hone his craft. During this same time that Marc was working his magic at his mixing desk, a completely different story being told out in the clubs and dance charts as Marc's music gained notoriety all over the World. One after the other, his productions and remixes were going top ten, top five and Number One over and over. As we see the sun setting on 2014, it is undeniable that MK has returned the roots of his craft as evidenced by scores of fantastic mixes and original productions. He has also earned a place as a world respected DJ. (Mixmag voted him as Number 4 on their top 100 DJS of 2014).

Currently, MK's projects include making his own album for Columbia UK, and working on his new group Pleasure State, with Anabel Englund and Lee Foss. He is in the process of remixing his first co production with Rodney Jerkins for the Mary J, London Sessions album with the song, "My Lovng." He is also re-launching his label, Area 10 with incredible stages at W R Fstvl , Cremefields and Parklife Festivals. An

To top it off, MK's emergence as a world class DJ has him traveling the world at near record pace. His shows just this past year have taken him to Ibiza, Germany, London, all over the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Denmark, Holland, Norway, Italy, Croatia, Belgium, Mexico, Chicago, LA, Denver, SF, NYC, Dallas, Vegas,Boston, Australia and even to Russia, and it looks like even more cities will be visited in 2015.
