Duke Dumont and Gorgon City, two of the U.K.’s biggest names in dance music, team up on the new single “Real Life” featuring up-and-coming Australian electro-pop duo NAATIONS. Released today by Astralwerks and available HERE, the summer anthem was inspired by the beautiful setting of Ibiza, where both Duke Dumont and Gorgon City are set to play summer residencies. A soulful piano melody underpins a hefty low end and jacking rhythm, while NAATIONS’ soaring vocals are layered over the top. Last night, Gorgon City and Duke Dumont played an exclusive back-to-back DJ set in London to celebrate the launch of “Real Life.” The set can be heard HERE.
Gorgon City has sold in excess of two-million combined singles and albums worldwide. The prolific duo has completed multiple sold-out U.K. & U.S. live tours and has taken its KINGDOM DJ events across the globe. Preparing for a busy summer, Gorgon City will be performing at numerous festivals, including Spring Awakening in Chicago and Imagine in Atlanta plus SW4 Festival, Boardmasters and V Festival, where they will be headlining the dance stage. See below for U.S. tour dates.
Hailed by The New York Times as “a skilled reviver of deep 1990s house music…a brilliant remixer and interpreter of modern pop songs,” Duke Dumont has amassed over 130 million combined streams to date and topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

Duke Dumont produced and co-wrote Katy Perry’s new song,”Swish Swish” (featuring Nicki Minaj).Now based in Los Angeles, he will kick off his summer North American tour this weekend.
