Back in 2015 Duke Hugh challenged himself to produce a beat-a-day.
In 2016 these tracks are finding their way onto vinyl, starting off with Duke Hugh’s premiere on Rhythm Section International. Duke’s tracks are driven by beats with subtle hints to Hip Hop – one reason that formed the love triangle between label boss Olivier Boogie, Awanto3 and himself. 2016 marked his debut on Rhythm Section and now we got him for the inaugural release on La Freund Recordings.
Equipped with analogue gear Duke Hugh’s tracks are built up around TR606 beats heavily inspired by Max Graef and Dego & 2000black. The combination of soundscapes including classy solos on the Rhodes and the Juno 106 on one side and Korg bass-driven House on the other make up for a well-rounded release.
