Spotlight: Duke Dumont at the 9:30 Club

Duke Dumont

Part of a strong, young British crop of soul-informed deep house DJs/producers also including Disclosure and Gorgon City, Duke Dumont has had some impressive early success, as his first two singles both reached the top of the charts in the U.K. and also snagged back-to-back dance Grammy nominations. First was “Need U (100%)” featuring the Sierra Leone-born British singer A*M*E, and next came his song “I Got U” featuring producer Jax Jones and vocalist Kelli-Leigh in an inspired interpolation and homage to Whitney Houston’s “My Love Is Your Love.” Both feature on last year’s four-song EP1. Here’s hoping a full-length album is in the works. Saturday, April 25. Nightclub 9:30, 815 V Street NW. Doors at 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $20. Call 202-265-0930 or visit
