Adam Dyment, better known by his stage name Duke Dumont, is a British DJ and music producer. He is best known for his single "Need U (100%)," which featured AME and peaked at the top of the UK Singles Chart in April 2013. He owns the record label Blasé Boys Club and has also used it as an alias for production. He has remixed a number of songs, including several which have charted in the United Kingdom. In 2014, "Need U (100%)" was nominated for "Best Dance Recording" for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.
Duke's early career was mentored by Switch (who has produced for Beyoncé, M.I.A., Santigold), and he made his name remixing pop songs, including Lily Allen's "The Fear," Mystery Jets' "Two Doors Down" and Bat for Lashes' "Daniel."
In March 2007 he released his first EP, the Regality EP for Turbo Recordings, which was followed in August 2008 by The Dominion Dubs EP on Dubsided. Duke mixed the 2010 'FabricLive.51' compilation album for London nightclub Fabric.
In 2011 he moved out of London to the Hertfordshire countryside (where his studio overlooks a forest) to focus on original material.
In 2012, Duke released two EPs on Tiga's Turbo Recordings, For Club Play Only Vol. 1 & Vol. 2, which were played on radio by Annie Mac & Fearne Cotton on BBC Radio 1, and Trevor Nelson on BBC Radio 1Xtra(source). In the same year he remixed AlunaGeorge's "Your Drums, Your Love" and Santigold's "The Keepers."
In March 2013, Dumont released the single "Need U (100%)." The song features vocals from Sierra Leonean-born British singer-songwriter AME. The song has topped the UK Singles Chart and also charted in Belgium and the Netherlands. The official music video, directed by Ian Robertson and starring Rique, has over 14 million YouTube views.
