Bio

A groove wrapped around a melody wrapped around a memory. A voice that makes you feel something real. Light, swirling textures grounded by bass lines with power and purpose—bass lines that push you forward. Deutsch Duke’s free-range take on electronica is the soundtrack to the moments that matter. From old school soul through to hip hop, pop, funk and rock, Dennis Dowlut has traversed genres as a producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. Full of unexpected trials, unlooked for success and sharp left turns, Dennis learned to follow his instincts on a trajectory through the industry which has been anything but typical. “Sometimes I’m not sure if I’m a producer who sings or a singer who produces music,” Dennis admits, “but at least it’s a lane that nobody else is in”. With skills in all corners of studio and stage and a thirst for collaboration, Dennis has become a prized contributor in recording studios across Australia, working with the likes of Set Mo, Muto, Peking Duk and Flight Facilities. But it hasn’t been an easy road… The power to heal, to travel back in time, the power to hope, to escape, to communicate, to love… it’s all in there, in between the chords. Deutsch Duke’s music may be a smooth cruise to the ears, but its impact runs deep.

Oooooh. You might remember crying to these pipes on MUTO's Wildfire. There's a similar tone to this track with DD's vocals resonating with striking emotion. Give it a couple of listens and let it draw you in.
