Review: Armand Van Helden at Create Nightclub

October 25th, 2013 by | Concert/Festival Review, Dance, Disco, Electro, House |

Last Saturday, a few buddies and I caught, Armand Van Helden, aka 1/2 of critically acclaimed DJ duo Duck Sauce, at Create Nightclub in Hollywood.  His DJ set went by super quick although it lasted for over two hours, which shows how entertaining of a set he performed, which was mostly disco and progressive house, lots of fun!

Anyways, I don’t remember a ton of what he spun, but when he performed 2009 Duck Sauce hit “Anyway” and the latest Duck Sauce single, 2013’s “It’s You”. Oh and also his 1996 classic, “The Funk Phenomena”; watch music video’s for those three songs below.

Summer catch up (2 new videos)

Although this video came out over the summer, we feel it was one greatly overlooked. Filmed with a retro feel to match its retro sound, Ronson teams up with one of hip-hop’s greats, Q-Tip, and quirky synth-pop artist MNDR (pronounced Mandar) to create this euro-retro masterpiece anyone can dance to.

Here’s another video to a song that came out in the early summer that got a lot of attention. Directed by So Me, this video features not only the DJ duo of Duck Sauce (Armand Van Helden and A-Trak) but QuestLove, Santigold, members of the Fool’s Gold family, Kanye West, Dave 1 and P-Thugg of Chromeo, The Fat Jew, Pharrell, Yelawolf, Diplo, DJ Premier, Just Blaze, DJ Mehdi, Buckshot, Dust La Rock, Ryan Leslie, Ezra Koeing of Vampire Weekend, Fafi,
Smif N’ Wessum, Todd Terry, Pill, and, of course, a Barbara Streisand look alike (kind of).
Isn’t it nice to see all the people who make the music we love so much, getting along? Check it out and let us know if you see anyone we missed – There’s no way we got them all.

The New Guy’s First Post: Duck Sauce

September 27th, 2010 by | Disco, House, Techno, Trance |

Hello readers,
My name is Adrian, and I will be your guide to electronic music on this blog. You can find out more about me in my bio but I feel I should introduce myself a little at least.

The majority of readers probably don’t care where I grew up or what boring major I have. So instead I have compiled a list of all the major electronic music acts I’ve seen over my years as my credentials, which is probably what you guys care more about anyway.

Boys Noize, Laidback Luke, Erol Alkan, Diplo, Shadow Dancer, D.I.M., LA Riots, Green Velvet, DJ Dan & Donald Glaude, Deadmau5, Moderat, 2manyDJs, The Bloody Beetroots, Danger, DJ Mehdi, A-trak, Kaskade, Pendulum, Groove Armada, ATB, Benny Benassi , Fedde le Grand, Above and Beyond, Rank 1, Armin Van Buuren, Fake Blood, Simian Mobile Disco, Computer Club, Yoji, Crystal Method, Marcus Schultz, Pendulum, Jack Beats, Boy 8-Bit, Carte Blanche, Bingo Players, Dada Life, Bart B More, Congorock, Dirty South, Swedish House Mafia, Z-Trip, Wolfgang Gartner, Afrojack, Basement Jaxx, Armand Van Helden, Moby, Duck Sauce, Harvard Bass, Surkin, Brodinski, SonicC, Chris Lake, 12th Planet, Daedalus, Riva Starr, Treasure Fingers, The Twelves, Breakbot, Proxy, Tiga, Flying Lotus, Digitalism, Soulwax, DJ Sneak, Chromeo, and THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS.

As you can see from this list, I am much more inclined towards house and electro, but I will do my best to introduce my readers to a wide variety of electronic music genres.

Today I will be introducing you to Duck Sauce, a disco-house collaboration between two very skilled producers/DJs, Armand Van Helden and A-trak. This collaboration is relatively new (about a year old), but has absolutely taken the electronic world by storm with their funky beats.

They don’t have many songs because of this, but every release has been pure quality. Enjoy!
