“Ocean Drive” – Duke Dumont
The first time I heard of Duke Dumont was when he made “I Got U” which sampled Whitney Houston and was a big hit at the time. Admittedly, I never followed up or heard much of him after that until now. I actually came across his single “Ocean Drive” by mistake whilst driving with a friend courtesy of the Apple music shuffle feature. Released in September last year, the video already has over 79 million views on Youtube which is crazy unless you’re Taylor Swift or something! Duke is from the UK and is a renowned international DJ and deep house producer. The single ‘Ocean Drive’ appears on his latest EP titled “Blase Boys Club Part 1” also released late last year topping off a very successful 2015 for him. The EP sounds more disco than house to me but I’m not complaining! You can check out the EP stream here.
