Single Review: Duke Dumont – ‘I Got You’ (Feat. Jax Jones)

2 min read

UK grown and Grammy nominated producer Duke Dumont is making airwaves again with latest track I Got You, single number two released from his to-be-confirmed album due to hit stores sometime this year. It is a shame that this new tune didn’t exceed his UK chart success in 2012 with Need U (100%), it seems to have a lot more potential whilst at the same time follows the same formula; heavy bass, smooth vocals by a talented woman and a great vibe.

DukeDumont-IGotUInstant hit or not, I Got You is definitely intriguing to the ears. The atmosphere is set at the first second, initially you are convinced you are listening to a rad Jamaican track, but this first impression is soon eclipsed by the wicked ‘oomph’ of the bass and keyboard accompaniment. The instrumentation soon gives way so we can be wooed by the beautiful voice that is Jax Jones; there is just something about dance producers collaborating with female vocalists that works incredibly well. Jones is easily the biggest highlight of track, and the perfect choice for this tune. Despite the heavy drum beat and layers of instrumentation, for a dance track I Got You is amazingly chilled and seems perfect for the clubs and, thankfully, the couch.

Compared to the new album’s first single release Hold OnI Got You just seems to prove that, by a long shot, it is the most exciting track out of the two purely because it is a simpler and more laid back number. For the three minutes and eighteen seconds spent listening to it, you just block the whole world out and forget about your worries, Jax Jones and that soothing voice take you on a journey and you can’t help but click replay. I Got You really DOES get you, and so does Duke Dumont and his incredible producing abilities.
