PREVIEW: VISIT Duck Sauce’s MySpace
A little over a month ago, I happened upon Duck Sauce. A collaboration of Armand Van Helden and A-Trak, Duck Sauce looks to create appealing club tracks for DJs. Though not really an original concept, it would appear that success is on the horizon for the duo regardless. For those who’ve already heard “aNYway,” you know exactly what I mean.
Sampling Final Edition‘s “I Can Do It,” the track is an infectious, poppy dance number that gets better with each listen. Even though chart performance has no bearing on the track’s quality, it’s already hit number 22 on the charts over in the UK, and grabbed the number one spot on the dance charts.
To top it all off, the video is equally fantastic, if not more so. An allusion to the Jackson 5 and The O’Jays, it plays like a 1970s TV variety show, complete with some of the best dance moves you’ll see all year. Watch it under the cut.
