First Listen: UK duo Duke & Jones drop off new trap burner ‘Breathe’
Duke & Jones may not be a household name yet, but the Manchester-born DJ duo are on the rise — and climbing fast. But just as they really start to take off, the pair are slowing it down for a moment, dropping off a heavy new trap product called “Breathe.” The track is a clamorous slow burn, stacking multiple layers and sample cuts into a knocking set list weapon that could level a dance floor, reminiscent of Flosstradamus or Baauer‘s early percussive arrangements.
Multiple listens through “Breathe” reveals a colorful patchwork of sonics — the track actually sounds like Darth Vader running through a rainforest of steel beams. It packs futuristic trap and jungle stylings into a versatile DJing tool, as Duke & Jones continue to fine tune their sound. Watch this duo progressively pick up steam and raise their profile all year long behind tunes like this.
