DuMonde are Jurgen Mutschall aka JamX and Dominik de Leon aka De Leon. DJ Jamx and De Leon are now two of Germany"s biggest DJs. Their production skills are up there with the world"s best, collaborating with the likes of DJ Tiesto and Push. You can now hear DuMonde"s hard techno trance sound across the entire globe, as their records hit the top 40 in dozens of leading countries.
They started out in 1995, under their own personal names. They did not join forces until 1997. But during this period both had a number of hits including, De Leon feat Myra, "I am what I am".
Dominik and Jurgen"s innovative ideas clicked together immediately, and soon followed the tune that perhaps they are most famed for, "Tomorrow". This entered the top 10 in Germany, and hit dozens of compilations, including "Gatecrasher Wet", "Clubber"s Guide", and "Euphoria". It was undoubtedly the tune that put DuMonde on the map, and their new remix of it was hammered in a similar fashion by every DJ from Paul Oakenfold to Judge Jules.
DuMonde were now being approached by hundreds of record labels to remix material, and began to develop a powerful reputation as remixers. This was largely due to the success of records such as their remix of "Push", "Universal Nation", or the chart smashing, "CRW", I Feel Love", and Alice Deejay"s, "Better Off Alone". There is no doubt that DuMonde have been at the front of the trance scene for the last 4 years.
This was strengthened further by their collaboration with fellow German giant, Talla XLC. Together in early 1999, they founded "Chaos Records’, which has released several major hits including, "Das Licht", "Keep It That Way", by JamX and "Hold It" and "Fate" by De Leon.
Last year, DuMonde came back with "See The Light" on Nebula and "Just Feel Free", not to mention the chart storming remixes of "Binary Finary 2000", and their own "Tomorrow".
They are now household names in every major European country, not to mention the U.S. This has only been reinforced this year with the success of, "Wake Up", with Tom Wax, which is a favourite with the likes of Tall Paul, Judge Jules and John Kelly. And of course their recent club smash, "Never Look Back" (Manifesto). This new tune also represents a new era for DuMonde, as the awesome trance classic rips up Europe, their production has taken a notable power trance edge to it.
DuMonde"s DJ career is now set to take off in a fashion similar to their music over here in the U.K. In Germany they rank alongside DJs such as Westbam, Talla and Paul Van Dyk. They hold the most prestigious residency in the country at the world famous, "Dorian Gray", as well as regularly guesting at clubs such as "God’s Kitchen", in Birmingham, "Velfarre", in Tokyo, the´Gatecrasher´ in Sheffield and also ´Glow´in Washington D.C. They are also renowned for rocking massive dance events like, "Nature One" and "The Berlin Love Parade".
DuMonde’s latest project is called „DuMonde vs. Lange - Memory“, a german-english collaboration which already got massive club reactions
all across the big european venues and can be found in the playlists of important dj’s.
In November 2001 JamX & De Leon finally found their own label called „F8T Recordings“. The first release is called „JamX & De Leon - Can u dig it“ and will be released in the beginning of 2002.
Now, with every major club in the U.K after them, DJ JamX and De Leon are set to develop their DJ reputations here, to the same level as it is in Germany. So forget about the past and listen to the future - "Memory" continues the story of DuMonde, which definitely can"t be anything but successful.
