Ducky aka Morgan Neiman, has a producer’s instinct and a powerful voice. She has been making music since she was 13 years old and has played alongside the likes of Japanther, Ninjasonik, Roxy Cottontail, Trouble Andrew and Action Bronson. Her latest release, The Whether EP out February 21, fearlessly explores the sinister side.
In this vein, Ducky recently released an introductory single “Killing Time” produced byDingo Dog. The track is at once an ebullient Saturday afternoon love song and a subtle confession of its disintegration. Ducky matches a sophisticated pop sensibility to incisive vocals, addressing an absent “friend” with checked ferocity. Ducky’s feline vocal styling wraps lushly around the upbeat pop song “Killing Time,” available for download HERE.
On The Whether EP, Ducky fearlessly marries grinding beats with dark mantras of loss and resentment, her vocals sometimes feral, sometimes sirenlike. “Overdose” and “I Want to Die” remain understated and chilling, re-emerging ethereally on “Like Rain,” where she muses “All I want to see is where you’ll go without me” over a twisting give-and-take of synths. “Mouths Like Sidewinder Missles,” naturally closes the EP with building drums and ghostly redemptive melody ending unresolved.
Ducky’s songwriting and ethereal production boldly stand strong with equal parts virtuosity and pluck.
TROUBLE ANDREW ANNOUNCES THE TROUBLE GANG MIXTAPE
Featuring Diplo, Santigold, Spankrock, Amanda Blank, Lil Jon & Many More;
On Tour Now In N. America
After four years of touring, recording, and causing mayhem across the globe, Trevor “Trouble” Andrew returns with the Trouble Gang Mixtape, an album caliber collection of new bangers and remixes. Featuring an incredible range of collaborators including Lil Jon, Spankrock, Amanda Blank, Santigold, Diplo, John Hill, Stunnaman, Hollywood Holt, Curren$y, Ninjasonik, Jackie Chain and many more, the Trouble Gang Mixtape is a ride-out blend of all the musical styles that Trouble encompasses from punk rock to hip hop and electro and everything in between.
Trouble himself describes it like this, “I was in the process of recording my new full length Trouble Andrew album ” Dreams of a Troubled Man” and the mixtape came together on the side because so many friends and artists were around hanging out and recording shit through the process that we didn’t even realize I was making a mixtape until we had it finished. It was cool to do a project that didn’t really have to be consistent or have a story except that we all are individuals. That’s why I love mixtapes.”
The Trouble Gang Mixtape features the Trouble band with Ian Longwell aka The Super on drums, Joao Salamao on guitar, and Masa Takaku on bass and features production from The Kickdrums, Diplo, John Hill, Trouble & The Super, Jonathan Benedict, Doc McKinney, Circut & AG (Lets Go To War), Yeti Beats and Olly Burden. Most of the mixtape’s contributors are featured on the limited edition cover art created by Thom Lessner (from Sweatheart).
