Rueben Styles and Adam Hyde make up Aussie electro-duo Peking Duk. We’ve chosen them as a feature artist this month due to their popularity on crowdDJ®. In the month of August, their track ‘Fake Magic’ came in at #9 on our most requested songs list. No strangers to a collaboration or guest vocalists in their work, ‘Fake Magic’ is brought to life by the sweet vocals of British singer Aluna Francis from AlunaGeorge.
Formed in the nation’s capital, they first gained attention due to a bootleg remix of a Passion Pit track in 2012. It’s been 4 years since their last remix but they’re back with a bang, taking on Lorde’s ‘Perfect Places’. No matter which track we listen to, we’re hard pressed to stop ourselves from making some shapes. It’s dance music all ’round with these boys.
Along with ‘Fake Magic’, some of our favourite Peking Duk tracks include ‘Take Me Over’ featuring Safia, ‘High’ featuring Nicole Millar and ‘Stranger’ featuring Elliphant. You can find all of these on the Nightlife system in venues across the country – check out our UPBEATS playlist. And if you’re into live music, you can also catch them on the truly epic lineup for this year’s Falls Festival dates.
As they say, Peking Duk not only tastes good, but it sounds even better.
