Peking Duk have released two remixes of their ARIA Gold accredited single Let You Down featuring Icona Pop, through Sony Music Entertainment Australia. The #1 Australian Artist Single has been remixed by Australian House producer Dom Dolla and talented Norwegian artist Lido. Let You Down has been streamed over 8 million times and is now certified Gold in Australia.
ARIA-nominated Melbourne producer Dom Dolla, described by his peers as a rare currency accepted on all dance floors, provides a late night re-work of Let You Down. Dom Dolla's collaboration with Torren Foot Be Randy was nominated for Best Dance Release at 2017's ARIA Awards and he has also shared the stage with Diplo, Tchami, Oliver Heldens and Bixel Boys.
Norwegian artist Lido has an extensive catalogue of original music as well as working with the likes of Chance The Rapper, Halsey and Banks and remixing alt-J, Bastille, Banks, The Weeknd and Disclosure. Lido was recently in Australia for Alison Wonderland's Scarehouse Project.
Peking Duk recently won the ARIA Award for Apple Music Song of The Year for their Triple Platinum hit Stranger feat. Elliphant. The duo were also nominated in the Best Dance Release, Best Group and Best Live Act categories, and performed the song on the night with special guest vocalist Jessica Mauboy.
Let You Down is a modern heartbreak melody and the first to feature vocals from one-half of the duo, Adam Hyde. Flowing through the different stages of heartbreak, Peking Duk and Icona Pop have created the perfect break-up song for their generation. With razor-like synths and thundering drum beats, the electrifying rhythm in Let You Down beautifully contrasts with both artist's emotive vocals and sad lyrics.
Peking Duk are currently in London performing two sold-out shows and will return to Australia for Falls Festival.
Catapulting onto the Australian music scene in 2014, the ARIA-Award winning, Canberra-bred duo of Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles, have captivated fans around the world with their distinct flavour of pop-infused electronica and electrifying live sets.
Peking Duk started their ascent in 2014 with the ARIA-winning 4 x platinum single High, which became the #1 most played track on triple j that year and placed #2 in the Hottest 100, and have quickly become one of Australia's most successful home grown acts. They backed it up with two more huge hits; the triple-platinum Take Me Over and the platinum Say My Name. In late 2016, they brought us Stranger featuring Swedish cool-girl Elliphant, which has racked-up over 33 million streams worldwide and is now certified triple-platinum. More recently, 2017 has seen Peking Duk return in force with Fake Magic, a collaboration with vocalist Aluna Francis of UK duo AlunaGeorge, yet another platinum certified hit with over 15 million streams globally. This exciting next phase sees the dynamic duo take their career to the next level with Let You Down, featuring Swedish electropop group Icona Pop. With a massive 130 million streams next to their name, Peking Duk's global fan-base continues to grow exponentially with every release.
Australia's favourite duo have had transatlantic success with multiple North American tours including huge performances at Coachella, Lollapalooza and Squamish in Canada among several club dates. Their very own national Clowntown Tour earlier this year culminated in one of the biggest shows of their career on the main stage at Splendour In The Grass, where they debuted their fully live performance show to incredible acclaim. Peking Duk's reign of major Australian festivals is set to continue with Falls Festival over the New Year. They will be making waves in Asia later this year with It's The Ship in Singapore and a selection of other dates in the region.
It's fair to say that Peking Duk's sonically captivating live shows will leave you sweat-soaked, champagne-sprayed and picking bits of confetti out of your hair for days. The best part? With a debut album just around the corner, Peking Duk's domination is just getting started!
