Australian Duo Peking Duk have a knack for finding creative ways to present their brand, and enlisting the best vocalists to pair with their masterful productions, their abilities have led to them picking up mega awards and global mainstream awareness. From streaking with Hamish & Andy to performing the half time show at major sporting events and gracing the stage at festivals around the globe, this party starting duo have managed to keep the sound on well beyond their cities lockout laws, with hits time after time they have risen to become one of Australia’s most successful electronic acts.
They gained acclaim with releases including vocal features from Icona Pop, SAFIA, AlunaGeorge, and Nicole Millar on singles such as ‘High’, ‘Take Me Over’ and ‘Stranger’, having performed both as DJ’s and with their full live show around the globe, the eclectic duo have now teamed up with fellow Aussie, Jack River on the highly anticipated ‘Sugar’. The 90’s throwback themed record was premiered on Triple J today and released shortly after on all streaming services.
‘Sugar’’ is an undeniably catchy vocal record with a chill dance/electronica feel that is energised by stabby bass drops, it fits nicely alongside their previous catalogue while also still carving its own edge. The vocal performance from River and the throwback artwork illicit a nostalgia for a simpler time, we predict it will grow to be a staple on the Aussie radio waves and beaches the rest of summer. The release of ‘Sugar’ is a nice warm up to a big year ahead for Duk’s with their upcoming run of shows aptly named “BIGGEST. TOUR. EVER…so far” which will hit dates all over Australia, with many already sold out. Click Here For Those Details
