It’s been seven years since Duck Sauce appeared on BBC Radio 1, and 2020 marks their triumphant return. They went radio silent since their Quack album back in 2014. But now, their newest mix is two hours long and takes you deep into dance music history. A-Trak and Armand Van Helden recover gems from The Egyptian Lover, World Class Wrecking Crew, and more.
If you’re a Duck Sauce fan, old spirit, or lover of house music, this mix is such a trip. You get funk, soul, house, and so much love. This is where the dance moves were born from. It features The Fearless Four, Sly Fox, Jazzy Jay, C.O.D., Jenny Burton, Paul Hardcastle, and so much more. Throw this on during a house party, a quiet night in, or blast it on speakers for the whole town to hear. You’ll be party rocking the old school way with these beats. Some parts may make you zone out to its downtempo, but the groovy energy picks back up again with the next track. The set is perfect for boat parties, with the DJ deck at the front and wind in your face as you dance.
Let’s not forget that they’re also throwing in their latest single ‘Mesmerize‘. If you haven’t heard it, it’s a wild one. Not to mention, it also includes a music video–a first for their songs in half a decade. The boys have been busy working with Helden releasing The Answer, with Chris Lake. A-Trak remixed ‘Feed The Fire‘ with Dave 1, as The Brothers Macklovitch.
The duo always brings interesting, creative ideas to their music production. That music video may look like a retro, subpar CGI movie, but underneath it all is depth to their brand. It’s really quite…mesmerizing.
