90s High School student Duke listened to tape cassettes of Speed Garage on his walkman. His eyes were nearly closed, his limbs struggling to remain still, his lips beatboxing along quietly to the bassline.
During a class experiment taking apart electronics, he brought his grandfather’s old AM radio. Unbeknownst to the Duke, this radio altho looking nothing more than an antique, had been forever transformed from the fallout of radiation from an atom bomb detonation in 1945. As Duke plugged in the radio, a freak accident occurred. Suddenly there was a spine shattering crash and a blinding light. 1.21 jigowatts of electricity was unleashed causing a rift in the space-time continuum, and the young Duke was transported to a parallel world, one where the past, the present and the future were all merged.
Back from his journey, the Duke is ready to unleash his Future Swing Time Machine on our world. Duke Skellington delivers on this one in true style, providing bass-heavy house drops fused with hip hop snippets and big brass stabs.
