With Abe Duque’s “Don’t Be So Mean” just out, it’s time for the romantic side of his songwriting to come out. With vocals by Virginia, a killer DJ Hell remix and a wonderfully sultry remake by Tigerskin, “Following My Heart” is an old-school 4AM moment from four big talents.
It follows the much-more-political first single, “Tonight Is Your Answer”, which on very limited promo has had raves from a huge range of DJs and styles, from the hardcore to the disco: Marc Romboy, Style of Eye, Tommie Sunshine, Cagedbaby, Anderson Noise, Laurent Garnier, Disco Bloodbath, Cassius, IDJ, DJ Broadcast, Tsugi, John Selway, Tom Pooks, Luke Solomon, Tedd Patterson and Clouded Vision.
And as benefits someone who is a regular collaborator with people like Hell, Blake Baxter and Tijuana T, this single comes with an unusual competition and an offer to collaborate. As part of the album release, Abe is offering a competition for two people, one in London and one in Berlin, to win a day in the studio with Abe. It can be a masterclass, help with a mixdown or writing a track or remix, or just a Q&A… to enter, visit www.abeduque.net/competition.htm
