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.)
