Upon release, the well-received Trojan Horse EP reached #8 on iTunes Top Dance Albums Chart and earned accolades from Billboard, Fader, Hypebeast, and more. The record united hip-hop heads with EDM fans across seven show-stopping singles, as opening track “Stretch 2-3-4 (feat. Pharrell Williams)” quickly became a fan favorite. Zane Lowe world premiered the up-tempo, funkified, exercise call-to-arms on Beats 1 and Revolt proclaimed, “Kanye’s ‘Workout Plan’ might have just been replaced.” Additionally, Samsung Galaxy and Gatorade Propel placed the song in global campaigns. The EP also features the chart-topping track “Making Luv to the Beat (ft. T.I. & DJ E-Feezy),” which cracked the Top 10 Spotify US Viral Chart, following a Beats1 Premiere by Ebro. It has since gained over 1.65 million respective plays on Spotify and the remix by Finnish producer MERCE topped the Hype Machine Twitter Chart at #1.

 

WatchTheDuck is a music-based collective dedicated to capturing and celebrating the overlooked beauty in the mundane, daily hustle. Although the group has admitted to Billboard that they have “never been big fans of being front and center,” WatchTheDuck shook ComplexCon in November, with an energetic performance during the i am OTHER showcase. Kicking off 2017, they performed their Nick Grant collaboration “Get Up” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Most recently the duo teamed up with David Banner and Black Thought on “Who Want It?”

 

Regarded by many as groundbreaking virtuosos, WatchTheDuck’s discography has been remixed by numerous esteemed artists, making up the core of The Trojan Horse Deluxe Edition. Amongst the staggering list of included compositions is the highly anticipated remix of “Hustler” by Dim Mak trap / bass artist QUIX.
