Peking Duk invite Wax Motif, Destructo And More to Remix "Stranger"Late last year, Peking Duk released their cinematic, soaring anthem “Stranger” featuring Elliphant and it’s no surprise that it took the scene by storm (not to mention Platinum status in Australia and over 10 million streams on Spotify). With an effervescent sound that can only be described as epic, “Stranger” is a track that effortlessly carries the listener to new heights, as was evident in the track’s trippy video. Dogs getting high and flying through a world bursting with happiness? Sign us up! Just in case you’re yearning for more “Stranger” vibes, Peking Duk is releasing a two-part remix package featuring six artists.  Part 1 contains renditions by DestructoY2K and Blanke.  Destructo‘s remix is a dark, driving, and sexy remix—with the “I’m Never Gonna Sleep Alone” vocal riff complemented by deep basslines, this is a surefire club hit. Y2K‘s version is a toned-down and groovy; this is the remix you want to play when you’re cruising along the coast or winding down for the night. To round it out, Blanke delivers a heavy electro banger that will resonate both literally and figuratively with bassheads.  Round 2 stars Wax MotifFaux Tales and JackalWax Motifopens with a future house infused remix that begs for dancing, while Faux Tales works some chilled out bass and uplifting instrumental riffs into his rendition and Jackal‘s version is slightly whimsical and dreamy for easy listening. Each of the six new “Stranger” versions has its own distinctive sound, so you’re bound to be drawn to one (if not all) of these fresh new takes on the hit track.

Adam Hyde & Reuben Styles, better known as Peking Duk, soared into the Australian music scene in 2014 with their massive triple Platinum single “High (feat. Nicole Millar)”. “High” was the #1 most played single on Triple J radio in 2014 and was #2 on Triple J’s Hottest 100 poll, the world’s biggest music poll with over 2.2 million votes. The song also peaked at #1 on Hype Machine, hit #1 on Australian Shazaam, and Top 5 on ARIA singles & clubs charts. Their second single, “Take Me Over“, went double Platinum in Australia and reached #5 on Triple J’s Hottest 100. In 2015, the duo set off on their first U.S. tour which showcased their distinct flavor of indie electronica and included electrifying live performances at SXSWCoachellaLollapaloozaElectric ZooTomorrowWorld, and Life Is BeautifulPeking Duk‘s debut EP, “Songs To Sweat To“, which includes their previous single, “Say My Name” feat. Benjamin Joseph, is out now on Vicious Bitch/RCA Records.

Innovation is the best word that describes Valentino Khan‘s EP, ‘French Fried’. This 4-track material is filled with dance floor rhythms. A new addition to the Mad Decent family you won’t want to miss. Best of all, it’s now available on all streaming platforms.

According to the producer himself, the whole tracks are inspired by French artists that set an important precedent in America’s electronic music. More specifically, he’s borrowing a similar sonic aesthetic by the likes of Gesaffelstein and SebastiAn. In fact, this European stylistic trend represents an influence in Valentino’s edgy sound and vision to date.

Published

Melbourne Overdose
Listening to music is a good thing to do when you’re bored. Of course, I would only recommend infectious tunes like “Melbourne Overdose”. This is the latest single from the one and only, Mou5ZyZZ in collaboration with Yago Music. The American DJ and producer experiments for the very first time with a subgenre of Electro House known as Melbourne Bounce.

On the one hand, pumping minimal beats, sidechained synths, and lively drops are the highlights here. While on the other, vocals match the high-level production. On a side note, compelling lyrics fantasize about hooking up with a stranger and the mystery that this implies.

Out now via Mou5 Chee5e Records, this fresh jam makes you want to do the shuffle dance, so put your foot forward and keep spinning non-stop. Get ready to distract your mind from boredom and stream in full “Melbourne Overdose” right away.

DØBER Returns To Protocol With Riding Tech/Electro-Influenced "Tear The Roof"
DØBER is back on Protocol with his new single “Tear The Roof”, a party-ready track that follows up on his debut “Twisted” EP from earlier this year. The release received a strong welcome, amassing over 130k streams on Spotify since its release on February 14th. The newcomer’s propensity for intense club music, that toes the line between electro and tech-house, is once again evident in the form of heavy percussive synths over a driving bassline and distorted, catchy vocals. “Tear The Roof” is uniquely different from previous tracks “Make It Better” and “Losing My Mind,” which channeled more groovy and trap influences, respectively, indicating that DØBER has more up his sleeve than meets the eye.

Nicky Romero and the Protocol crew can always be counted on for cutting-edge new music, melding a variety of genres for exciting and unexpected sounds. Their latest additions feel right at home with that mantra, bringing a fusion of tech-house and electro sound with plenty of grooves to the table. DØBER joins a full roster of talented producers such as Thomas Gold, Deniz Koyu, Marc Benjamin, Teamworx, Maximals, and more. The talented newcomer draws his inspiration from artists such as Dogblood, ZHU, and Gesaffelstein, promising plenty of dark, hard-hitting tunes to add to the label’s repertoire. Protocol’s mixture of veteran heavyweights and fresh new talent makes for some of the most exciting releases in the game, along with the unlimited potential for collaborations. We look forward to more releases from DØBER and the rest of the Protocol team coming soon!
