Disco and House infused hit-maker Duke Dumont has announced a series of new EP releases on Blasé Boys Club; the first one being cleverly titled Blasé Boys Club Part 1. The EP series looks set to replace the traditional album format for the Duke (so don’t expect a full length release anytime soon, just queue up those EPs) and the première release is set to feature legendary ’80s house vocalist, Fingers Inc. member Robert Owens on a track called Robert Talking. That’s not on this track though, although we guess it is possibly Robert singing on this one too, it does sound a bit like him (although more glossy and 21st century), anyway this is Ocean Drive.
Ocean Drive is Duke Dumont’s foray into the world of 80s Boogie. Heavy with digital Funk basslines and a warm Italo Disco tempo. The bassline is the killer app here, a springy and comforting slab of robo Disco. Accompanying that is clouds of lush, easy keys and a relaxed, but passionate, vocal with lots of driving metaphors. This one is a laid back monster for lazy summer days. Great stuff.
