Late last year, Peking Duk released their cinematic, soaring anthem "Stranger" featuring Elliphant and it's no surprise that it took the scene by storm (not to mention Platinum status in Australia and over 10 million streams on Spotify). With an effervescent sound that can only be described as epic, "Stranger" is a track that effortlessly carries the listener to new heights, as was evident in the track's trippy video. Dogs getting high and flying through a world bursting with happiness? Sign us up! Just in case you're yearning for more "Stranger" vibes, Peking Duk is releasing a two-part remix package featuring six artists. Part 1 contains renditions by Destructo, Y2K and Blanke. Destructo's remix is a dark, driving, and sexy remix—with the "I'm Never Gonna Sleep Alone" vocal riff complemented by deep basslines, this is a surefire club hit. Y2K's version is a toned-down and groovy; this is the remix you want to play when you're cruising along the coast or winding down for the night. To round it out, Blanke delivers a heavy electro banger that will resonate both literally and figuratively with bassheads. Round 2 stars Wax Motif, Faux Tales and Jackal; Wax Motif opens with a future house infused remix that begs for dancing, while Faux Tales works some chilled out bass and uplifting instrumental riffs into his rendition and Jackal's version is slightly whimsical and dreamy for easy listening. Each of the six new "Stranger" versions has its own distinctive sound, so you're bound to be drawn to one (if not all) of these fresh new takes on the hit track.
