In the fifth episode of ‘Short Cuts’, A-Trak’s YouTube series, DJ Shiftee takes control of his highly-coveted all-gold Technics to drop a perfect chop-up of “It’s You”.
The official video for “It’s You” has amassed over 3 million views on YouTube and been nominated for Best Visual Effects at the MTV Awards 2013.
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.
Expect nothing but more mayhem from this pair of New York prankster pioneers.

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”.
You can get your first taste of the track right here.
The single will drop on June 25th…
Until then, get back into the Duck Sauce groove with “Barbara Streisand”…
AND “Big Bad Wolf”
