Kobalt signs Duke Dumont06 February 2018 - Press release
Kobalt says: We couldn't be more thrilled to welcome the multi-talented Duke Dumont to the Kobalt family! The Grammy-nominated musician, songwriter, DJ, and producer's worldwide agreement includes publishing administration for his future works and includes his share of Katy Perry’s smash, “Swish Swish.”
After becoming a prolific remixer, British-born Duke Dumont was instrumental in bringing UK deep house music to the forefront when his single, “Need U (100%)” hit number one in 2013 and was nominated for a “Best Dance Recording” Grammy. Two subsequent blockbuster singles followed, including “I Got U,” which also hit number one in his native UK.
In the past decade, among Duke’s procession of singles and EPs are tracks remixed under his alias and record label title, Blasé Boys Club. More recently, he collaborated on two Katy Perry songs, serving as producer on 2015’s “Every Day is a Holiday” and songwriter/producer on 2017’s “Swish Swish.”
"I'm very happy to be working with the team at Kobalt on my future body of recordings,” says Duke. “With a solid mechanical system in place, and a recent aggressive approach to acquiring writers, now is a good time to be working with such a team.”
Senior Creative Director of Kobalt Dominique Keegan said of the deal, “We are very pleased to announce that Duke Dumont will be joining Kobalt Music. His talent as a producer and artist, and as someone who has been at the forefront of the UK and international house music scene, is very exciting to us and we welcome him to our ever growing creative roster."
We can't wait to start working with the incredibly talented Duke Dumont! Once again, welcome to the Kobalt family!
