In 2016, DUCKWRTH took the energy he developed in New York back to Los Angeles where he created and released his critically acclaimed debut LP, I’M UUGLY. IM UUGLY is equal parts mainstream and underground. With smooth crossover tracks like I'M DEAD featuring Sabrina Claudio and RAREPANTHER to mosh pit songs like BLAKK RAGER and RUUUN, this was a project that merged the most unique parts of DUCKWRTH’s personality and talents to create a sound and visual palette that indicated he had not only grown as an artist but well on his way to being a music icon and visionary for his generation.
DUCKWRTH's recently released project, an XTRA UUGLY Mixtape, vows to take that vision a step further by blending genres from rock to hip hop to funk and soul and incorporating live elements from guitars to violins. What started as just an accumulation of demos he started while working on his previous release is quickly proving to be more than just a few leftover tracks sitting on his hard drive. It is a legitimate body of work that caught the interest of Republic Records and has already gained the attention of tastemakers around the world.
