Duke Dumont at III Points 2014: A Video Interview

Serious props to III Points.

The fest has done an impeccable job of booking world-class musicians and DJs alongside local favorites. But no doubt, one of the biggest names to grace the Mainframe stage this past weekend at Soho Studios was London house hero Duke Dumont.

He's a Grammy-nominated producer who just wrapped a residency in Ibiza, but he's not too big to sit down for a silly chat with us. And yes, we caught the whole thing on video.

Upcoming Events

We here at Crossfade spoke with Dumont about his much-anticipated new album, which should be coming out sometime early next year. "It's getting there," he confirms. "Almost done."

Duke's also revealed his first impression of III Points: "They gave me weed!" And then he offered some praise for Miami's upstart fest, saying: "I looked at the lineup and was like, 'Fuck, I'd actually like to go.' And that doesn't happen all the time."

Oh, and if there's anyone who's concerned Duke Dumont might cop out and cash in after all of his success these past few years ...

Well, he'd just like you to know: "I don't want to make the most generic, shitty pop song just to sell records."
