Virgin Records is churning out more house melodies through its golden goose Duke Dumont. For a label which is home to the Chemical Brothers and the late Avicii, that’s probably a good thing. Certainly, they’ve definitely got the other genres covered, so having Duke on their EDM roster is a godsend. His new release, ‘The Power‘ featuring Zak Abel is sure to keep the Virgin name fresh in the minds of EDM junkies abound.

Duke Dumont - The Power feat. Zak Abel - EDMTunes

Adam George Dyment, better known as Duke Dumont has no problem delivering hits. In particular, his fairly new track ‘Red Light Green Light‘ defines this belief. That, likely, is a big part of why he’s being added to monster lineups such as Escape Psycho Circus. So, for him to choose to join forces on ‘The Power’ with former table tennis champ Zak Abel seems confusing. Although, since his table tennis dominance from 2008-10, he’s done some stuff as a singer-songwriter. Namely, making great music with Gorgon City, Kaytranda, and Wookie. Now, you can add Duke Dumont to that list of achievements.

‘The Power’ jumps off like most singer-songwriter-DJ collabs of the day. Zak belts out some perfect-in-key lines to get the ladies’ shoulders bobbing. Then, Duke lays on the house melodies super thick. It’s the type of stuff that is dance floor gold. Get ready to see plenty of festival-love pop off to this one. If nothing else, light up some glow sticks and pop open a fresh bottle of water. ‘The Power’ should unleash the passion for the remainder of the summer festival season. Listen to the new track below and find out for yourself.
