A-Track & Armand Van Helden aka Duck Sauce - Ducktape [Free Mix/Cassette Release]

Duck Sauce is a dance music duo composed of deejays A-Trak and Armand Van Helden.  A-Trak is now known worldwide as a dance DJ and co-head of Fools Gold Records but he originally came into fame back in the day for being the youngest and first Canadian DMC World Champion at age 15. He then went on to be the first DJ to win three separate major DJ competition titles (DMC, ITF and Vestax) as well as be the first DJ to win five World Championships.  Armand Van Helden is a legendary house DJ and producer who topped charts around the world with his remixes and his own original songs.  The duo came together a couple of years ago and together have become Grammy nominated and won an International Dance Music Awards for Best Underground Dance Track.  Duck Sauce recently contributed to BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix series earlier this month with an hour of original music and an hour-long mix of other artists' tracks - and now the first half of that mix has been released as "The Duck Tape."

The Duck Tape contains 34 unreleased demos as well as the singles "It's You" and "Radio Stereo." It's a solid dance mix full of energy & humor frequently mixing in ridiculous samples such as duck quacks and Ancient Aliens snippets. The tape is out on Fools Gold Records and, similar to their previous release of "Run the Jewels," is available for FREE download as well as being free with purchase of various merch bundles. I for one am a huge fan of this strategy and hopes it catches on with more labels while still managing to let them be profitable. You can download it from the Soundcloud player and purchase the shirt/cassette bundle or even a friggin gold bomber jacket rockin RUBBER DUCK with the Duck Tape at the link below:
