Duke Dumont is all too happy to move beyond dance music's obsession with aggressive bass and unrelenting riffs. With this bootleg mix of "Need U 100%," Artful Dodger moves away from electro and dubstep's shattering thumps and searing synth lines and embraces soul. The original kept things clean and uncluttered, mainly riding smooth vocals from A*M*E, handclaps and funky bass, but Artful Dodger embraces glowing grooves and layers of glimmering Eurohouse blips for a more hypnotic experience.

The Artful Dodger version of "Need U 100%" will be released as a single on June 4th; "Need U 100%" is out now.
