Finally!!! Duck Sauce, the Grammy-nominated duo consisting of Fool’s Gold trendsetting boss A-Trak and house legend Armand Van Helden, are putting the final touches on their debut studio album, Quack, due for release this fall on Casablanca records. Together they shuffle into the summer with the absurdly catchy single “It’s You” and an equally bonkers, hair-raising video by acclaimed director Philip Andelman.
“It’s You” properly follows in the webbed footsteps of Duck Sauce’s past video hits, including 2011’s VMA nominated, comically grotesque “Big Bad Wolf” and the viral smash “Barbra Streisand” in 2010. The stadium-filling whistle of “Barbra” remains one of the biggest dance tracks of the last decade, racking up over 100 million YouTube plays and hitting #1 in 12 countries.
Duck Sauce plan to shake things up with Quack, coming later this year. This isn’t your typical dance album: Quack pushes the boundaries of house music and sampling into an absurdly visual listening experience, interwoven with skits, scratching and irresistible loops. Expect many more videos from the pair of New York prankster pioneers.
The entire world has sung along to Duck Sauce’s international breakout hit “Barbra Streisand” released in the US on Fool’s Gold/Downtown Records. The song charted at #1 in over 12 countries and racked up 65 million YouTube views with arguably the biggest viral video of all time, a quirky, star-studded homage to New York’s downtown scene. “Barbra” landed placements in Glee, How to Make it in America and countless ad campaigns. Continuing its assault, it is now nominated for a Grammy for Best Dance Recording. A-Trak’s partner in Duck Sauce, the legendary Armand Van Helden, is no stranger to the Grammys himself, having been nominated for Remixer of the Year in 1998. The video for the duo’s current single “Big Bad Wolf” has already shaken up the internet, heralded across the board as the best video of 2012 and sitting at 6 million views after just a few weeks of release.
This year has seen DJ A-Trak conquer every festival from Coachella to Hard Summer in America, Sonar and Creamfields in Europe, Parklife in Australia and Ultra Brazil all while bridging the gap between hip hop and electronic music. His groundbreaking label Fool’s Gold has had its biggest year to date, opening their own flagship store in Brooklyn over the summer and online store last month. A-Trak is set to perform at Madison Square Garden with fellow Grammy nominees Swedish House Mafia on December 16th.
Duck Sauce is currently preparing the release of their first full-length album in 2012!!!
