Relentless Beats is back again with a brand new adventure into the underbelly of dance music. Called Origins, the event is founder Thomas Turner’s homage to the sounds of electronica from where he draws his roots. The gathering will touch down in Rawhide Western Town on November 17 to help bring the underground to light.
The inaugural lineup sees This Never Happened owner Lane 8 headlining, along the live-infused sounds of Justin Jay, and quite a few other power players like Autograf, Nora En Pure, Duke Dumont, and more. Tickets are now on sale for as low as as $39 for GA, and $89 for VIP.
“The response we have received from the RBDeep brand is reflective of the growth in interest of deeper music, which made this the right time to take it to the next level. This is just the beginning for Origins, and I cant wait to see it evolve in the years to come,” stated Turner of Origins’ birth.
Every year feels like a busy year for Duke Dumont — his music is always ubiquitous. But looking at the facts, 2018 has been a quiet year for British artist. His only original single of the year yet, “Inhale,” had long legs in remixing and pop radio play, but now he’s back to make sure we haven’t forgotten where his roots lie: in club-ready dance music.
Entitled “Runway (For Club Play Only, Pt 5),” the track’s name might automatically raise some questions, including where are parts 1-4? Well die hard Dumont fans will be able to tell you that, as it’s been nearly two years since the last installment of the series was released. Launched in 2012, the series delivers singles that cater to one place only, as advertised. The fifth iteration in this series is inspiring for a fierce dance floor strut, underlined with in your face basslines and classic house samples from Robbie Tronco’s 1990’s tracks “Runway as a House” and “Walk 4 Me.”
Summer festival season is winding down, but the events circuit shows no signs of slowing as fall lineups begin to pour in. Halloween billings have already started surfacing, and thanks to the organizers at Diskolab, Miami just became a top contender for Halloween weekend destinations. Mana Wynwood Warehouse will host some of the most in-demand electronic acts in the country across October 26 – 27, with a roster topped by RL Grime and Galantis, along with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike billed as the weekend’s special guests.
Seismic Dance Event is a new festival hosted by local Austin, Texas promoter RealMusic Events. Known for their house-oriented electronic lineups, Seismic Dance Event seems to the pinnacle of their love for hard beats and dirty grooves.
UK producer Duke Dumont shared the lighthearted official video for his funk-heavy dance track, “Inhale,” featuring the candy-coated vocals of Ebenezer.
The video incorporates Robert Lloyd’s infamous mantra, “slow and steady wins the race,” to portray a comically chaotic office space at 5pm on a Friday. While a vicious fight breaks out among the employees, a sloth is seen scaling the cubicles–affirming Lloyd’s sage advice, as fuzzy little guy is the first to reach the elevator. Silly humans.

Duke Dumont has tried his hand at commercial house, successfully. His new track “Inhale” with Ebenezer is a sure radio hit with its bouncy backdrop and Ebenezer’s smooth vocals. Fans have seen everything from house to techno from the producer, and “Inhale” showcases his expansion into another territory with its commercial influences.
Dumont recently posted to his Twitter that he is spending a month working on music and will be back to touring later this year. “Inhale” is the first of multiple releases fans can expect to see from his studio sessions, and it’s a strong start for the producer heading into 2018.
It’s been only a few days since The Killers released their fifth studio album, Wonderful Wonderful. Already, though, there’s a surprising standout track at the end of the 13-song deluxe collection.
Duke Dumont has done a remix for the album: a funky, retro take on “The Man.” Playing up the single’s grungy guitar riffs and Brandon Flowers’ recognizable vocals, Dumont molds his rework into a vintage, disco-influenced masterpiece. With a hollowed-out dance beat, Dumont flips “The Man” into a remix that’s both innovative and nostalgia-inducing.
It’s been five years since The Killers released an album, but with Duke Dumont on the lead-out, it’s a surefire hit.
Since its release earlier this month, Real Life has attracted remixes from a variety of artists, including Dillon Francis and Murdock. Universal Music’s Tom & Collins have now debuted their own take on the house gem, with “Real Life” landing directly in the duo’s wheelhouse.
Tom & Collins’ re-imagination of the Duke Dumont and Gorgon City pairing plunges the tune slightly deeper than the original, a nod to the Mexican duo’s deep house association. The Tom & Collins remix explores the impact of a slower tempo and minimized piano role, alterations that result in a remix of Real Life that is ultimately almost too good to be “real.”
