Leftfield takeover. Duckworth is a panelist at this years AIM conference and in 2016 was a judge at the Ivors.
One to speak his mind, both Political and emotional, Duckworth has found a new passion in co writing and production. Starting with 2012s German Club and Hype Machine, Number one, "Good for the City” with Kraak Smaak, this journey has seen 5m+ streams with Jordan Mackampa for “Yours to keep” as well as a work on the forthcoming Lily Allen LP.
Returning to the Get Cape. moniker, following 2012s battle with life threatening illness and 2014 subsequent abandonment, Duckworth is back in January 2018 with new album Young Adult, which includes the Shy Fx collaboration “always.” Mastered by T Power, this is Duckworth back as a folk artist, but still keeping parts of the electronic experimentation. Sam debuted a new band at his recent Village Underground show, hearalded by the Independent as a “Triumphant Return.”
