artworks-000068507082-37di5o-t500x500

Funk, disco, groovy, and jamming. All perfect ways to describe the feeling of listening to any of Duck Sauce’s famed productions. This time around is no different as the duo consisting of A-Trak & Armand Van Helden release a free four track EP showcasing their signature sounds. “Calmari” and “Party In Me” are my personal favorites and “Louie The First” originated as the theme song in Louis C.K.’s televised FX show. After what was an A+ set on this years Holy Ship, Duck Sauce are two of the remaining legends in dance music today so be sure to tune into this EP, turn up your speakers, and enjoy.

The Quack Is Back [News]

After about a one year hiatus, Duck Sauce is back with some big buzz surrounding their name. They have very recently previewed their new tune “Quack Is Back” (in the form of a loop), and schedule to release the track on June 25th. The American duo consisting of A-Track and Armand van Helden already have plans to perform in the U.S. this summer as they announced at the end of April they will be playing at Hard Summer festival in Los Angeles during the first weekend in August. The last time Duck Sauce was on a famed festival stage was last year’s Governor’s Ball, shortly after their Main Stage appearance in Miami at Ultra Music Festival. It’s truly a pleasure to see the boys have been back in the studio together, as they have left us wanting more since their last release in “Big Bad Wolf.” This is only a sign of good things to come, so let’s hope to hear even more Duck Sauce as the festival season is now in full swing. To listen to a loop of “Quack Is Back”, check it out on their website here.

A-Trak – Tuna Melt EP (The Remixes) [Release]

atrak

If A-Trak’s infamous “Tuna Melt” EP wasn’t enough for you, here are a handful of remixes/alterations that have a bit more bang than the originals. GTA, Grandtheft, Jack Beats and Les Rythmes Digitales’s edits are only some of the featured tracks on this remix ep, but we thought they were slightly superior to the rest and deserved some recognition. In addition to some banging remixes A-Trak also incorporated a second version of his trap original “Landline”. This diverse remix EP is composed wide range of genres including deep, trap, and disco edits to A-Trak’s originals.

A-Trak – Tuna Melt EP [RELEASE]

These past few months A-Trak seems to have been mainly focused on his electro house productions more than anything, however his new EP, Tuna Melt, composed of all sorts of EDM genres serves to rectify his missing presence. This EP has to be one of the most well rounded one’s ever produced, “Landline” a trap collaboration with GTA, and my personal favorite “Disco Nap” featuring Oliver remind us how versatile A-Trak is as a producer. Not to mention the long awaited collaboration with electro junky Tommy Trash, great compilation of songs, enjoy!

Tommy Trash – Truffle Pig (Original Mix) [RELEASE]

Our favorite Australian EDM rock star is back with another funky tune! Tommy Trash’s new single entitled “Truffle Pig” is set to be released November 6th off of fellow EDM artist, A-Trak’s label ‘Fool’s Gold’. The two collaborated to produce a track that goes by the title “Tuna Melt” that has yet to be release, but will also drop off of ‘Fool’s Gold’. This old-school style track is a lot funkier and more mellow than what we are used to from the electro junky but is sounding excellent even at it’s teaser faze. It seems that Tommy is experimenting with some new sounds and production methods, rather than sticking to one generalized sound we might be used to from him, which is exactly what EDM needs. Loving this one!

Tommy Trash & A-Trak – Tuna Melt (Original Mix) [PREVIEW]

We first got word of this upcoming collabo between Tommy Trash and A-Trak a few months back after an exclusive interview with Tommy himself. He couldn’t tell us much about the track except for the name “Tuna Melt.” We now have the preview to this sick tune ripped from Protocol Radio #006 and despite the poor quality, this preview has already exceeded our expectations. You know when TT and A-Trak get in the studio that you can expect some filthy electro and thats exactly what Tuna Melt gives us. Enjoy the preview and stay tuned for more info on this track that is slated to be released via A-Trak’s Fools Gold.

A-Trak & Dillon Francis – Money Makin’ (Oliver Twizt Trap Remix) [RELEASE]

It looks like Oliver Twizt is hopping onto the trap bandwagon. This remix to Dillon Francis and A-Trak’s “Money Makin” is one of three from the package released earlier this morning. As a big fan of Dillon, A-Trak, Twizt and TRAP music in general, this massive tune was a MUST buy for me. Oliver straight kills it with two banging drops that will make any fan of the genre fall in love. Let me know what you think and ENJOY!!

Zedd feat Matthew Koma – Spectrum (A-Trak & Clockwork Remix) [RELEASE]

So I don’t need to remind you about A-Trak’s recent success in the past couple of months in producing electro house, as his remixes of Justice’s “New Lands”, and Martin Solveig’s “The Night Out” speak for themselves. However It seems like the extremely experienced Montreal born, producer/DJ has decided to kick it up a notch and team up with American producer, Clockwork to create this remix of Zedd’s “Spectrum”. The track possesses somewhat of a progressive vibe to it, with a electro-synth type drop. This remix shares some similarities with A-Trak’s recent work, however clockworks contribution, as well as Zedds original production, help this one stand out and make it different than what we are used to from A-Trak. This track is set to be released on July 31st along with the rest of the remixes on the Spectrum EP, however we have an early release for you guys, enjoy!

Justice – New Lands (A-Trak Remix) [RELEASE]

A-trak, a veteran DJ/producer in the dance music industry has recently been trying to make the jump into electro house, and this remix of Justice’s “New Lands” is a testament to that. Aside from his project “Duck Sauce” with fellow producer Armand Van Helden, A-trak has been testing the water in the Electro House scene this year. Opening for Swedish House Mafia at their Madison Square Garden performance, and not to mention his hard hitting electro remix of Martin Solveig’s “The Night Out” he seems to be doing an awesome job. Alain Macklovitch aka A-trak is just an extremely talented musician who is successful in whatever he dabbles in and I look forward to hearing more electro tracks from him in the near future. This track is bananas, it has a really funky touch to it and different from what we are hearing from every other producer out there.

Justice – New Lands (A-Trak Remix) [PREVIEW]

Funky, groovy bangers. Thats what we have all come to expect from A-Trak and he never fails to disappoint. The detail and unique sounds he uses are what makes A-Trak such a big figure in EDM today. This time he takes his talents to “New Lands” by Justice off the forthcoming New Lands EP. With his well known producing and DJ skills, a long with the blossoming of Fools Gold, there is no telling how much of an impact A-Track will have on us once it is all said and done. Let me know what you think of this preview and stay tuned for the release!
