Duke & Jones have officially planted their flag with the release of their debut four-track EP, Eclipse. The new collection is the culmination of the duo’s steep upward trajectory over the course of the last year, eventually catching the ears of Doctor P and Flux Pavilion for a Circus Records co-sign. Duke & Jones’ first extended play comes after a string of successful releases across Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats, Thrive Music and more in recent months, along with some well-timed Zedd support in the lead up to the new release. The Manchester-based DJ duo put together four heavy handed original works, each landing as effective setlist weapons in Duke & Jones growing catalog of inventive bass cuts.
Eclipse is a highly collaborative effort, bringing aboard fellow Manchester producer Rohaan on “Numerals,” Don Cotti on “Sticks” and Aviella Wonder on the duo’s previously released Circus single “Final Goodbye.” Fine tuning their sound with each release, the emerging UK producers are carving out an impressive come up as they deliver their biggest release to date, inevitably inching towards their well-deserved breakthrough moment.
