WatchTheDuck, a rising trap-meets-EDM group based in Atlanta and hailing from Alabama, announced today it will drop a new EP, The Trojan Horse, November 20, 2015 on Steve Aoki's Dim Mak/Epic Records.
The band, comprised of rapper Jesse Rankins and DJ Eddie Smith III, teamed up with "friends and collaborators" T.I. aka Tip, Pharrell Williams, Tricky Stewart, and Steve Aoki, all who claim executive producer credits on the EP that features "seven brand-new songs, brought to life by heavy, rumbling bass, sparse soundscapes and catchy, soaring melodies." ScHoolboy Q and Afrojack also make an appearance here, as do some called, "a few noteworthy surprise guests."
The pair, who have previously worked on separate projects with T.I., Pharrell, and Aoki, and have released a handful of mixtapes and EPs, are "known for their innovative fusion of thumping electronics, soulful melodies and trap-inspired beats." The duo plans to follow The Trojan Horse with a full-length studio album in 2016.
Available now is "Making Luv to the Beat (feat. T.I. & DJ E-Feezy)." The song is accompanied by a visual of an android humping a Dim Mak-stamped amp, which matches the track's tone: a sweaty club jam filled with chilly beats, sultry basslines, and aggressive synths.
