Duck Sauce

I am very excited about the latest collaborative project composed of two awesome DJ/Producers. Armand Van Helden and A-TRAK have teamed up under the name Duck Sauce. The album is supposed to come out sometime in September on A-TRAK’s Fool’s Gold label. For me, this is house music at its finest. Its FUNKY guys. “You’re Nasty” samples the track “Nice and Nasty” by Salsoul Orchestra which was on the album “Blueprint 2” a compilation from, the one and only Jacques Lu Cont. I highly recommend these tracks and look forward to more from Duck Sauce.

Dustin Curtis

Welcome to me nerding out over user interfaces and their designers. Here is how Dustin Curtis introduces himself, “My name is Dustin Curtis. I make user interfaces and experiences. I am obsessed with sushi, the sky, and the brain. Today is the 8,238th day of my life.” His site is easy to navigate through and explore. Probably one of my favorite parts is the about page. Chalk-full of entertainment. The timeline is BRILLIANT. Let me just list off the other things I find inspiring: the iconography (particularly the little fish that appears here and there), the navigation, the sign up box on the fuel site *swoon*, the one-pixel borders, the humor, I mean I could go on for days.

All in all, I find Dustin’s work to be utterly fantastic. He gets bonus points for being from the bay area.

Zoot Woman

Zoot Woman has a new album entitled, “Things Are What They Used To Be” coming out August 21st. I’M SO EXCITED. I’ve mentioned Stuart Price, who’s a member of the group before. I wish I could fast forward to the day when I will FINALLY see Stuart Price/Zoot Woman live, if he/they ever tour the US. Until that day, I leave you with one new track and one old.

I dont like my hair neat. I can’t get enough of this video and I haven’t posted a video in awhile so I thought now was as good a time as any. Tiga is great. I have tried to see him twice now, both times unsuccessfully which is truly a shame. I really don’t have much to add to this other than I just found out he has a podcast which seems interesting, so I will be checking it out. I’ve also included Shoes for your downloading pleasure.
