Duke Dumont was all in our minds in 2013 with his hit I Need U (100%) and he is back with a new single that is my jam. Let's start Monday off on the right foot with Ocean Drive.
- I categorize this song somewhere in between 80s synth pop and beach core. What that means is that I feel a music video would be some handsome fella singing these lyrics in all white on the beach with gray skies. Very angsty which makes me love the vibe and it is the factor that draws me in.
- The track is a beautiful take on the tropical trend that is still surrounding festivals today that most artists just mimic. What I love about this track is that it isn't trying to by Kygo or Thomas Jack. This is a Duke Dumont track and that is well defined with his emotional take on the tropical sound.
- Lastly, this song is one that puts me into a euphoria and it gets me very emotional by the end. At first I am tapping my foot and bopping my head. By the end I am chanting the chorus with feeling, breaking my glass box of emotion. "DON'T SAY A WORD WHILE WE DANCE WITH THE DEVIL!"
Jump start your Monday with Duke Dumon'ts Ocean Drive and be prepared to bop.
