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.)

New York City quackpots Duck Sauce are back with yet another of their groundbreaking and bonkers music videos for brand new single “NRG”.
This time they’ve concocted a late night informercial skit with Director Dugan O’Neal which features comedian Jon C. Daly promoting fictional fix-all green gloop called “NRG”. As always A-Trak and Armand Van Helden get roped into the goofy action.
Irresistibly hooky, the single samples Melissa Manchester’s 1985 release “Energy”. Remixes come courtesy of Skrillex, Kill The Noise, Milo & Otis and Hudson Mohawk.
The duo’s long awaited album Quack is out June 29.

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.
