Japanese techno duo, Drunken Kong presents Neo, their brand new techno single extracted from the upcoming album Where We Start.

All the way from Tokyo, Drunken Kong has been constantly active in the Japanese capital techno scene, playing regularly at major Tokyo’s clubs such as WOMB, Ageha, Unit, Vent and Sankeys TYO. From minimal techno to heavy underground beat and melodic lines, Drunken Kong’s signature sound is an explosion of feelings.

Following the internationally celebrated release of their debut album The Signs Within in 2017, burgeoning Japanese techno duo Drunken Kong looks to kick off a brand new decade in emphatic fashion, as they announce their forthcoming album Where We Start, duo to release the 10th of February. The album marks the second full-length opus from the Tokyo-based outfit; it will include a total of sixteen diverse cuts, including thirteen brand new Drunken Kong originals, two recent collaborations with Mainz-based outfit Teenage Mutants and one exclusive new collab with Tronic head honcho Christian Smith. Where We Start is Drunken Kong’s most extensive body of work to date, and goes a long way in showcasing the inexhaustible creativity of one of the most prolific double acts in techno right now.

Our new album, “Where We Start” was built around an idea and inspiration that came from our new stage in life, which was parenting. Having a child, was something new to us and we wanted to create an album that directly reflected and captured various feelings and emotions we had at different moments. – Drunken Kong about the album
