DUCK SAUCE RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM “QUACK”

3Beatcd018 Duck Suce - Quack (Packshot)

Finally…it’s here!! Quack, the debut album from Duck Sauce – the veteran New York DJ team of A-Trak & Armand Van Helden –  is OUT TODAY in the UK.

Quack is fuelled by the duo’s strong connection with New York hip-hop, Chicago house, disco debauchery, slapstick comedy and, of course, UFOs.  More Dr Octagon than Daft, tightly knit with skits worthy of early De La Soul records, Quack is a fully immersive journey into the land of Duck: euphoric loops, mixtape cut-and-paste and conspiracy theories abound.  (You’ll also dance your ass off.)

 The 23 year old is the latest of the hot new crop of “Kiss Fresh DJ’s” joining the station

TS7 will take up the 3-4am slot on a Friday night every 4 weeks from this Friday 13th September, playing a mix of the UK Garage, House and Bassline sounds he has become known for since his career began in 2006 as a 16 year old producer making music from his bedroom in Bradford. 

2013 has already been a great year for Thomas Sampson aka TS7, who signed to highly successful dance/urban label 3 Beat Records, whose roster includes Duck Sauce, Matrix & Futurebound, Stylo G and Fuse ODG.
