Duke Dumont is ending 2013 with a bang by celebrating his first Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording with "Need U 100%".

Dumont's single was the #1 UK single two weeks in a row, reached the #1 spot on Billboard's Dance Chart, has broken 1 million downloads worldwide, has over 5 million Sound Cloud listeners and has over 17 million YouTube views.

"Nothing could have prepared us for being nominated for a Grammy," Dumont explained after his nomination for Best Dance Recording.

"This year, to have seen so many people dance to the track, has been a humbling experience and I can't think of anything better than this nomination to round off an incredible year."

Duke Dumont is supported by Win Music, and this is also the label's first Grammy nomination.

Win Music was just founded a few months ago by Sean Glass, and is proud to already have a Grammy nomination with their first release.

"I founded Win to expose the dance music I love to the rest of the world," Glass explained. "Duke Dumont being acknowledged by The Grammy's is not only amazing validation, but it makes so much for dance music community worldwide.

EDM has given dance a platform, and now it's time for the true creatives, like Duke, to take over. Win's mission is to keep delivering audiences amazing music like "Need U 100%"."

Now that is something to celebrate the end of 2013 with. To more continuous success for Duke Dumont and Win Music in 2014, and best of luck at The Grammy's!
