Ducky releases melodic, techno-clad ‘Glue’

Ducky has recently pulled the veil back on her latest experimental endeavor, “Glue.” The deliciously odd offering adds further weight to the producer’s vastly differing stylistic proclivity, which includes everything from hardcore to melodic, warehouse-friendly compositions—often with ample genre-bleeding behind her.

“Glue” is a bright and dynamic piece with a rave-y melodic intro that dives into a celestial anime buildup, giving way to a fervent, sped-up techno drop amid a rapid-fire synth line. After her heavier bass-filled “A Place To Rest” with Deadbeats, “Glue” takes an energetic turn towards the rave realm.

“Glue is a lightly tortured love song,” Ducky writes in a recent press release on the track’s origins. “It’s about falling for someone when you still have intimacy issues and trying to pry yourself open for them. It’s sweetness and tension at the same time, because that’s what intimacy is when you’re damaged. It’s joy, and it’s healing, and it’s uncomfortable, and it hurts – all in the same breath.

Flaunting an organic, instrumentally eclectic makeup, PLS&TY‘s two-track EP, Run Wild/Feeling Forever, tapped into a fluidly developing sonic freshness that swiftly set the production apart from fellow releases in the electronic circle. With ebbing vocals of a hypnotic caliber and metallic textures to offset the silk of these looping vocals, “Run Wild” touts elements that lend the track well to re-imaginative endeavors. Luca Lush, former Flosstradamus constituent, YehMe2, Manic Focus, and Ducky accordingly submit their remixes of the PLS&TY original on Run Wild/Feeling Forever (The Remixes).

Luca Lush amplifies the record’s potency via his addition of striking pops of bass and an accelerated beat arrangement. Likewise never one to shy from the integration of bass, YehMe2 offers a gritty, low-end heavy take on the lucid track. Manic Focus’s rendition surfaces as a comparatively more muted reprieve from the intensity that Luca Lush and YehMe2 bring to speakers, while Ducky ups the ante with another high octane flip.

PLS&TY’s “Feeling Forever” is also the recipient of two revamps, courtesy of Vindata and Bondax. Vindata’s is a glitchy, beat oriented rework that preserves much of PLS&TY’s original. Bondax’s is an ambient showing that newly engages piano chords, to add another instrumental layer to PLS&TY’s already mellifluous effort.

DUCKY enlists melodic dubstep for ‘A Place to Rest’ on Deadbeats

DUCKY enlists melodic dubstep for ‘A Place to Rest’ on DeadbeatsDucky LIVE

DUCKY has had an explosive 2019 so far on the release front. After her full EP materialized earlier this year, she is now back in the mix with a new single titled “A Place to Rest.” The producer is known for the diversity of her productions, which range anywhere from dubstep, to hardcore, all the way to melodic pop.

“A Place to Rest” opens with heavily synthesized female vocals that pave the way for a kicking build. The listener could easily expect the track to fall into a melodic bass drop, but instead the song features an ethereal and chaotic collection of synths with retro dubstep undertones. In addition to the new music, DUCKY debuted a brand new live show setup at Lollapalooza this past weekend in front of thousands of fans. “A Place to Rest” is out now via Zeds Dead‘s imprint, Deadbeats.

DUCKY delivers dubstep heater, ‘Addicted to Your Distance’

DUCKY delivers dubstep heater, ‘Addicted to Your Distance’Ducky 1

Los Angeles-based electronic sweetheart DUCKY returns with her fourth release of 2019, “Addicted to Your Distance.” Debuting on Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats imprint, the single follows her four-track EP, I Still Believe in Love, aligning thematically with the EP’s personal heartbreak backstory. “Addicted to Your Distance” is undeniably the next chapter in DUCKY’s growth, with lyricism centered on moving on from a past relationship and unforgiving bass packed into the production.

The track employs signature DUCKY elements, from her synthesized vocals to her eclectic fusion of dubstep and happy hardcore-inspired sound. Speedy vocal chops serve as buildup to a heavy drop that packages frenetic synths and punchy bass into a classic dubstep production. DUCKY’s angelic voice juxtaposes the thrashing sound design, ultimately delivering a melodic ensemble of bass-infused stylings. Echoing her self-molded genre of music, “Addicted to Your Distance” capitalizes on DUCKY’s ability to put a gaming-inspired twist on heavy-hitters.
