Blessed with a thumping bassline, and high-energy synth stabs, the track uses classic samples from Robbie Tronco’s “Runway as a House” and “Walk 4 Me,” and follows Duke’s previous single “Inhale,” and massive 2017 Gorgon City collaboration “Real Life” ft. NAATIONS – a soundtrack to the Ibiza summer season.

A true global superstar, Duke Dumont has amassed over 1 billion combined streams across his flurry of platinum-selling releases to date, scoring huge success with his platinum-selling UK number #1 singles “Need U (100%)” and “I Got U.”
Duke Dumont – I Got U (Official video) ft. Jax Jones:
Before becoming a two-time GRAMMY®-nominee for tracks “Need U (100%)” and “I Got U,” both in the category of Best Dance Recording. Duke Dumont’ beginnings are as Adam Dyment hailing from Rayners Lane (London). The man who would become obsessed with the process of record making was initially born deaf. With corrective surgery, over time it was a hindrance no longer. It inadvertently shaped the way he interprets sounds. Tone and timbre taking precedence over words & lyrics. An appreciation of sonics being at the forefront of everything he creates and curates. His painstakingly crafted productions either becomes chart hits or infectious club records, which boasts millions of plays charting across the globe.
Duke Dumont gives off an air of being grounded and assured, yet polite and considerate. It quickly becomes obvious you are not in the presence of the typical superstar DJ, whose success is based on perception management. Duke Dumont has top billing on the same stages, but his audience is both defined and refined. These are the same people, in the multiple of thousands that will purchase hard tickets to see him perform. Duke’s DJ career started in London, having learned the craft at institutes such as Fabric, in addition to holding numerous residences in Ibiza (Amnesia & Sankeys). Duke shares this philosophy;
“The goal isn’t for record sales or attention-grabbing tactics. It’s for how long my music can strike a chord with people by producing records with longevity.”
Recently playing Creamfields, and a number of Ibiza shows, including appearances at Pacha’s ‘Paris By Night’ and ‘Tuesdays on Mars’ residencies, the release of “Runway” arrives on the eve of the UK producer’s eagerly anticipated headline set at San Diego’s CRSSD Festival, and his upcoming Australia performances this coming winter.
