Electro-House | DCUP – Magic

Posted by on December 5, 2013

You know what the best feeling in the world is? Well, one of them, for that matter – when you’re mood and inspiration starts to plateau and then all of a sudden you hear a song that, within seconds, gets your blood rushing again. It’s 1:15pm and I was already three cups of coffee deep and couldn’t seem to shake the zombie feeling when I stumbled upon DCUP’s latest release, “Magic.” I’m a little out of touch with the American audience at the moment (it’s snowing over here in Sweden for the first time so I’m kind of out of touch with everything, tbh) but I think this Melbourne-based producer has been sneaking by, under appreciated and that needs to change. Actually, you might remember DCUP from “We No Speak Americano” back in the day, and you’ll recognize some of those funky latin vibes in “Magic.” But give this one a spin, it’s a bit of a 80’s groove, Duck Sauce-esque, touch of house cocktail with an Australian twist. Just what you need to spice things up.

Electronic | Duck Sauce – It’s You

Posted by on June 25, 2013


Despite having high maintenance blonde hair, I’ve actually always preferred going to barbershops over luxury hair salons. I consider the experience to an artistic and cultural retreat. It’s like a showcase for local or up-and-coming artists, from the street art on the walls to the records on deck, and the custom creations being buzzed into the side of people’s heads. I used to have this barber, a 7 ft. tall thug with dreads all the way down his back, who would give me a Street Cred 101 about how to walk the walk, talk the talk, and the importance of staying away from boys (or else he would hold the sheers up to my neck and threaten to tell my dad). Needless to say, I’d bust out of that place feeling rejuvenated on the inside and fly as hell on the outside. Barbershops were just the place to be even if you weren’t getting your hair did. We’ve all seen the movie, you know what I’m talking about.

Duck Sauce duo A-Trak and Armand van Helden know what I’m talking about too in the video for their latest track, It’s You. Known for producing jams with a retro twist, Duck Sauce really plays up the barbershop quartet in this one, a theme I don’t think we’ve seen yet in electronic music. The release of It’s You is just one step closer to an actual Duck Sauce album, an album A-Trak calls a “comedy album.” And it wouldn’t be a Duck Sauce video if you weren’t feeling a little confused or disturbed by the end of it. By the second or third play though, you’ll be scheduling your next buzz cut and searching for disco balls on the eBay, I can tell you that much. While I could never be as cool or awesome as A-Trak or AVH, I think I could impress my friends with this song. Impress yours, too.




DJ-Set, Preview, Videos | Avicii live @ Super Glow DC Washington Armory

Posted by on November 27, 2011

I included the video at the show for what is being called “ID2” because it is so good and w8 already posted the now confirmed collaboration between Nicky Romero & Avicii, which is the first song in the set. Here is the 3 hour set from Avicii from the previous weekend at the DC Armory with a crowd of 10,000, put on by Glow DC. I have seen Avicii 3 times this year, looking forward to a fourth, and I would say this is an outstanding Avicii set by all measures. He plays a whole host of upcoming tracks by himself and others, as well as brand new releases from Alesso, Michael Calfan and many classics he has been playing for months. If you are a fan of Avicii, you will want to check out this 3 hour set from start to finish. Tracklist after the jump.

Dubstep, Electro | DUBSTEP AND ELECTRO | Days Go By Remix and Duck Sauce

Posted by on January 6, 2011

The Mitsubishi commercial posted above combines all the greatest things in life: dance, cars, music, and girls. Perhaps it was this video that provoked me to develop an infatuation for “Days Go By”. I remember being a rugrat and just yelling at my mom to put this on deck every time I got in the car. If she knew how to use YouTube she would have made a killing with dance videos featuring Gmoney and I impersonating that breakdancing chick. This dubstep interpretation might be perfect, I couldn’t ask for more.

I think I’ve watched the Barbra Streisand video a thousand times so I’m hoping that Duck Sauce will refrain from releasing any others… This remix to Chromeo’s “Hot Mess” is another funky track with charming vocals and plenty of synths.

Girl Fire, Mashups | MASH-UPS | Duck Sauce, Wayne, La Roux, Taylor Swift and More

Posted by on December 16, 2010

Any mashup with “Duck Sauce” in the title immediately makes my ears moist. Here’s a well done track that features the best of both worlds; catchy funky sounds from Barbra Steisand and lyrical verses of Rich boy and Wayne. Just when I thought I couldn’t ask for more, DJ StrongArm throws us this dope bonus video he put together. Now that’s what I call a complete package.

DJ StrongArm – Throw Some Duck Sauce

Just when I thought Bulletproof had been recycled one too many times someone flips the track by throwing Taylor Swift on the bill… I love this piece of Girl Fire and I’m not embarrassed to admit it…

La Roux vs. Robyn vs. Whitney Houston vs. Taylor Swift – I Wanna Bulletproof Dancer

Travel back a few decades with this jamma bamma – not your average mash-up so give it an ear, who knows maybe it’ll brighten your day!
