|WatchTheDuck delivers their highly anticipated new EP, The Trojan Horse. Out now on DIM MAK / Epic Records, the seven-track project is available for purchase on iTunes here and for streaming on Spotify here. To celebrate the release, the group has teamed up with viral popping sensation Dytto to put out a visual for the project’s infectious lead single “Making Luv to the Beat (feat. T.I. and DJ E-Feezy).” Watch the captivating dance interpretation here.
The Trojan Horse finds the duo at the peak of their creative prowess. Filled with genetic energy, booming bass, thumping beats, and soulful melodies, WatchTheDuck has created a unique sound that is as familiar as it is fresh and unique. Executive produced by friends and collaborators T.I. aka Tip, Pharrell Williams, Tricky Stewart and Steve Aoki, the EP features seven brand-new songs, including “Making Luv To The Beat,” which premiered on TheFader.com. The duo recently shared the second single, “Don’t Blame Luv (feat. T.I.)” via Complex and the instant classic “Stretch 2-3-4 (feat. Pharrell Williams)” via Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show and Billboard.com. Additional album guests include Afrojack, ScHoolboy Q and Candice Pillay. The Trojan Horse builds on the group’s already stellar catalogue, which includes the previously released Black Music On Molly REmixtape, Anatidaephobia EP and the critically acclaimed Don’t Watch Me mixtape.
On Monday, November 23rd, DIM MAK will team up with HUSTLE GANG and I am OTHER to host the official release party for The Trojan Horse in Hollywood, CA. WatchTheDuck will perform live alongside friends and some very special surprise guests. RSVP Here.
