The Lab Los Angeles is Mixmag and Smirnoff Sound Collective's weekly post-work unwind where we stream only the finest American and international DJs, live and direct from our Downtown LA office. This week, we welcome UK deep house standout, Duke Dumont into The Lab LA.
Born Adam George Dyment, Duke Dumont has played an essential role in skillfully bringing deep house into the mainstream with his breakout hits 'Need You 100%', 'I Got U', 'The Giver', and most recently with 'Ocean Drive'.
2015 served as a milestone year for Duke Dumont. The Harrow native showcased a set made up of entirely his own originals at back to back weekends at Coachella and went on to release the first piece of his innovative EP series, 'Blasé Boys Club', which will eventually unfold collectively as Duke's first full-length output. With 'Ocean Drive' leading the charge of his first installment, there's no doubt that 2016 will be on the receiving end of the next chapter of what Duke Dumont has to offer.
On opening duties, we welcome back Sinden. The UK native has captured the perfect blend between Los Angeles and UK flavors since moving to the City of Angels three years ago and has become a weighing star on the bass spectrum of electronic music. Hear his latest 'Crystal Maze' EP here and watch him in The Lab LA here.
The Smirnoff Sound Collective is all about bringing fans closer to the DJs, providing up and coming talent with a solid platform and throwing unique events where fans and artists can party together. Check out more from the Sound Collective here
