2019 has proven a massively successful year for Manchester duo Duke & Jones. Their latest remix for Marshmello sits at 20 million streams, and their rendition of Yellow Claw's “Break of Dawn” was even featured in Need For Speed: Heat’s trailer. Over the last year, their unique, stripped-down, bass-infused sound has made it’s way to festival stages around the world. Today, the duo have showcased their minimalistic style of trap in their self-released, hypnotizing single, “Isolate.”
Duke & Jones prioritize quality over quantity. The duo, despite being in high demand for bookings, held off on touring for two years until recently signing to Primary Talent, a Europe-based booking agency that represents the likes of Rezz and Zeds Dead. Headline shows in Chicago, London and Amsterdam quickly followed. With selective bookings, it comes as no surprise these words to live by translate to their carefully curated music releases. “Isolate” proves to be no exception.
Blending together trap and future bass, “Isolate” has already seen widespread support for industry top dogs like Alison Wonderland and Jauz. The track opens with an enchanting and catchy vocal which builds to an even more mesmerizing drop, proving their “less is more” style. As it encapsulates both melodic and heavy qualities, fans can expect to hear this single to become a soon-to-be festival anthem.
