A powerful track steeped in emotion, "Let Me Go" elegantly pairs Ry X’s soaring vocals with cinematic production that gradually builds in intensity before bursting into more club-focused territories.
It follows on from last month’s poignant single "Love Song", with both tracks set to feature on the Duke’s long awaited debut album DUALITY, out on April 17. Channeling his years of experience into a cohesive record that epitomizes his core beliefs, the LP is an honest, cathartic expression of his desire to embody the mentality of a true artist, liberated from genre specifics and scored with his own sonic fingerprint.
The multi-Grammy-nominated electronic artist has amassed over 2.5 billion streams across his back-catalogue of previous anthems, scoring platinum-selling UK #1s with timeless records such as "Ocean Drive".
Citing Pearl Jam and Jeff Buckley as his biggest influences, Ry X has previously collaborated with a number of talented electronic artists such as Frank Wiedemann and Ame. He formed the band Howling with the former, releasing the album Sacred Ground on Ninja Tune/Monkeytown Records. He has since released two solo albums and toured extensively across Europe and North America.
A truly stunning single, "Let Me Go" delivers a well needed dose of musical escapism during these turbulent times.

About Duke Dumont:
Hailing from Rayners Lane (London) now residing in Laurel Canyon (LA) , Duke Dumont was initially born deaf. With corrective surgery this directly shaped the way he interprets sounds, with tone and timbre taking precedence over linguistics, which inadvertently shaped his approach to record making. Since then, Duke defied all odds and proved that his well crafted productions either become viable hits or infectious club records, boasting billions of plays across the globe.
Topping the billing on various stages worldwide, with his DJ career starting in London, learning his craft at such iconic institutions as Fabric to Panorama Bar (Berlin) and playing some of the biggest stages from Coachella (USA) , Exit (Serbia) to Splendor In The Grass (Australia).
He has since branched out to numerous residences in Ibiza (Amnesia & Sankeys) and Las Vegas where Duke shares his philosophy; "The goal isn't for record sales, or attention-grabbing tactics. It's for producing records with longevity and soul. If my records can out live me, I can die happy"
