While 2019 is only halfway over, it's already been a truly massive year for rising Manchester production duo Duke & Jones. Between releasing a steady flow of original singles; an EP on Zeds Dead's Deadbeats imprint; and a slew of official remixes for major EDM artists such as Dillon Francis, Alison Wonderland, Zedd, Yellow Claw, Louis The Child and Jauz; it's a wonder that the duo have had time to do anything besides making music.
Never ones to slow down, Duke & Jones are back yet again with their fourth original single of the year, a captivating and seductive self-release titled "Vacancy." A step away from their typical UK bassline-influenced production style, "Vacancy" ramps up the sex appeal while maintaining an intriguingly playful yet undeniably mysterious atmosphere.
While "Vacancy" differs in many ways from their previous releases - particularly given the use of sultry, evocative vocals - it's very much at home within their diverse yet instantly recognizable catalog of music. A less-is-more approach to production underpins everything they touch, and an array of organic, richly textured synths drive the energy and momentum that keeps fans glued to the dance floor.
If you're looking for a hard-hitting, emotionally laden beat that is both tantalizing and festival ready, look no further than Duke & Jones' new single "Vacancy."
