Ahead of his performance Kiss FM’s Tinea and Neev caught up with Fuse ODG backstage which was a lot of fun. Watch it here:

FUSE ODG’S “ANTENNA” GOES TOP 10!!

FUSE-ODG-BlogIt’s OFFICIAL – Fuse ODG’s massive summer smash “Antenna” is in the UK Top Ten!! The track was a new entry at number 7 on the Official Chart, the second highest new entry just behind Union J who charted at number 6 with their new single  “Carry You”.

QUACK IS BACK!


ABL Test 2

 

 

 

 

 

It’s in the papers AND it’s true!! Duck Sauce are back with a brand new and brilliant single – “It’s You”.

It’s been a while since we heard from Duck Sauce – the Armand Van Helden/A-Trak collaborative project which brought you the phenomena that was “Barbara Streisand” and followed it up with “Big Bad Wolf” (with that unforgettable crotchface video) – and “It’s You” is well worth the wait.

The first hint of a return came with a full page ad in New York’s top listings mag Village Voice announcing “Quack is Back”.
