Duke Dumont – Won’t Look Back

Things have really blown up for Duke Dumont since taking the well-trodden path from Human Drizzle Favourite to Chart Sensation. Named by the Guardian last week as a key member of the British House Mafia (yep), yesterday he followed up ‘I Got U’ with ‘Won’t Look Back’. It occupies the same territory as his previous chart successes: it’s packed to the brim with piano lines, female vocals and accessible 90s nostalgia, but – like Clean Bandit, Gorgon City, et al – the Duke is so far resisting going too far into lazy pop territory.

Listen out for some especially fun synthy fiddling from 2:48. ‘Won’t Look Back’ may not have quite the impact of some previous efforts, but it will undoubtedly be big this summer. And long may the British House Mafia dominate the charts, as opposed to the alternative.
