DUCK SAUCE’S “NRG” IS ZANE’S HOTTEST RECORD!

ABL Test 2“NRG” – the brand new single from NYC tricksters Duck Sauce – made it’s debut on UK radio last night when Zane Lowe made it his hottest record in the world (right now) on his show on Radio 1.

One half of the duo – Armand Van Helden – joined Zane on the phone to chat about the making of the official video (which is being edited as I type) and Duck Sauce’s upcoming album Quack. 

Listen back here.

A-Trak and Armand Van Helden wormed their way into your head with the Duck Sauce smash “Barbara Streisand”. And “NRG” looks set to do the same! …you and me…

The single is out June 22nd.

Duck Sauce, the Grammy-nominated duo consisting of Fool’s Gold boss A-Trak and house legend Armand Van Helden, burst onto this summer’s music scene with their catchy single “It’s You” and a hair-raising video by acclaimed director Philip Andelman. Their debut studio album, Quack looks set to push the boundaries of house music and sampling to create an absurdly visual listening experience, interwoven with skits, scratching and irresistible loops.

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”.

martin solveig – the night out

There aren’t many artists who can boast an audience topping over 110 million, but there is one such man who can – MARTIN SOLVEIG. Now synonymous with much of what the illustrious Frenchman does, the SMASH YouTube series that kicked started the success of ‘Hello’ almost 2 years ago, which just happens to be one of the biggest records in recent times, is back again with…’Episode 4: The Night Out’!

Released in conjunction with his next hit single “The Night Out” which debuted on April 2nd globally, this new installment sees Martin, with the help of trusty and some would say legendary ‘manageur’ Lafaille finally beginning to win over the heart of his longtime love, SHE. Featuring cameos from the likes of A-Trak, Laidback Luke, Sidney Samson, Madeon, Porter Robinson, Zedd and Dillon Francis– some of whom feature on the EP – this episode CANNOT BE MISSED! Having originally lost out to Gael Monfils in the battle for SHE months ago, the quest begins in earnest again as Martin and Lafaille create a special movie premiere for their first date. As with anything Martin’s ‘manageur’ touches, things do not go to plan… but with the help of scooters, boats and the Parisian scenery, can her heart be won over by the end of their night out?

“The Night Out” is the 4th single to be taken from the critically acclaimed album “SMASH”
