Duke Dumont and Gorgon City, two of the U.K.’s biggest names in dance music, team up on the single “Real Life” featuring up-and-coming Australian electro-pop duo NAATIONS. Released by Astralwerks and available HERE, the summer anthem was inspired by the beautiful setting of Ibiza, where both Duke Dumont and Gorgon City played summer residencies. A soulful piano melody underpins a hefty low end and jacking rhythm, while NAATIONS’ soaring vocals are layered over the top. They even played an exclusive back-to-back DJ set in London to celebrate the launch of “Real Life.” The set can be heard HERE.
