Duke Dumont Interview
The British producer discusses the current state of house.

British producers Duke Dumont and Mark Ronson have collided for a remix of “The Giver.” The original version of the song was released in the US as part of Dumont’s four-track EP1 last September. Now it’s been updated and slated as his follow-up single to “Won’t Look Back.”

This allowed “Uptown Funk” hit-maker Ronson to rework the track for a remix that strips away the house vibe of “The Giver” and turns it into a cool, smooth R&B joint that wouldn’t have sounded out of place in 1985. (It works quite well in 2015, as well!)

Today Idolator is premiering Ronson’s remix of “The Giver,” which you can listen to below.
