Duke has been composing, producing, remixing, and performing music since 1987. His music is consistently referred to by the media and listeners alike as presenting a unique and distinct sound. Wrote The Wire magazine (UK, September 2002): Andrew Duke creates music that sounds like it has a reason for living. He has been commissioned for more than 50 Rremixes (for artists such as Aaliyah, Pink Floyd, Rennie Foster, Chicks On Speed, and David Kristian), has licensed 104 tracks to compilations and worked with labels such as Open Concept. He has toured his live PA across Canada. Maiko is the first of two Japanese inspired adventures. A homage to the Beautiful Japanese girl, Maiko comes replete with remixes from Joe Babylon, Solab, Orlando Voorn and Jay Riordan. Deep, uncompromising techno funk that reaches a depth and intensity that will have people worried about the bass bins and precious sound systems; however, the subtle funk and pounding groove will have punters raising their hands, grinding their teeth and lovin' it on the dance floors. Early support from Surgeon, Desy Balmer, Paul Mac, The Parallel, Santiago Salazar, Rob Glennon, Captain Random, Nachklangmusik, Denny Trajkov, Erell Ranson, Phrek (6one6), Anton Banks and Maxine Tanquay to name a few.
