Well, aren’t we back at it again with more music releases? This time we head over to Australia to see what that crazy duo Peking Duk is up to. After releasing their hit “Stranger” Ft. Elliphant late last year, Peking Duk is now following up with some remixes from their favorite contributors! This is definitely not a surprise however, since “Stranger” reached over 10 million streams on Spotify alone. There is no limit to what Peking Duk can accomplish, especially since they have been tearing up the electronic scene in Australia since 2014. Today we are only checking out the Stranger Remixes Part 1, as Part 2 isn’t out just yet. It is anybody’s guess on what these re-mixers will bring to the table, as “Stranger” has a distinctive sound already and it is hard not to be drawn to it.
Now why don’t I stop giving background and talk about the actual remixes? Well, the Stranger Remixes feature three remixes from three very different artists. The first re-mixer up to bat is Destructo, who provides a more electro fueled version. Dark and sexy is the only way I could describe it, and it is definitely our favorite off of Part 1 here at Media in Review. Following Destructo is Y2K, who changes pace to twist and turn “Stranger” into a Calypso summer anthem. Slowing the pace down, Y2k focuses more on the groove, taking you for a ride all the way to the final note. Rounding out Part 1 is Blanke, who is to say the least the most aggressive of the three. Taking some liberties with the dubstep and trap genres, especially as we listen to the song further, Blanke definitely makes “Stranger” into his own track.
Be sure to listen to Stranger Remixes Part 1 on Spotify below! (That’s right, we are moving on up!)
