There’s a great group interview with a selection of the UK’s most successful up-and-coming house music producers on The Guardian site today, featuring Gorgon City, Jess Glynne, MNEK, Duke Dumont, Secondcity and Sinead Harnett; several of whom have garnered hemselves number 1 hits in the last couple of years, coming to dominate the pop charts with a new wave of British electronic music.
“Success gives you freedom,” says Duke Dumont. “If you stand by your convictions you can just do things on a bigger and better platform. The thing that gets overlooked is that everyone here today has written a great song. A bad house track doesn’t get radio play. To have a top 40 song is hard. To have a No 1, Jesus Christ. I think everyone here needs to take a step back and appreciate it.”
