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.

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.

MP3: Tiga – Shoes

Louis la Roche

I love shuffle. So I was listening to my iPod and had totally forgotten about how awesome Louis la Roche is. Apparently he has a new EP out entitled Me & Her which I am currently checking out. The track below is one of my faves. I’ve also come across the awesome Mnuvrs that has a great mix by Louis la Roche. This site is fabulous obviously, I mean they have the same wordpress theme as me, sooo they must be cool. The mix below has been on repeat ALL DAY today. So great. Check it out.

Monday at the Happy House

Let me start off my gushing about the amazing I went to Saturday night. The Juan Maclean and The Field put on a super fun show at SF’s Mezzanine. Both artists were different in their own respects which created a nice balance. ANYWHO the show exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend seeing either one at some point.

Here are my favorite tracks from these artists.

MP3: The Juan Maclean – Happy House

MP3: The Field – The Little Heart Beats So Fast

In For The Kill

This La Roux video is beautiful. And you can find The Twelves remix of this song below. (I’m more a fan of the remix than the original. Shhhhh.) La Roux is a Brit Electropop duo, but I just love the look of this video.

So here is some additional music randomness for you (Totally unrelated to the group above). I just bought a ton o stuff off The Whitest Boy Alive‘s merch store Bubbles For Sale. Loving the illustrations and of course anything associated with Erlend Øye, who’s adorably nerdy.

MP3: La Roux – In For The Kill ( The Twelves Remix)

Everything In Its Right Place

So I just bought my Groove Armada, and Etienne de Crecy/ Alex Gopher tickets. Pretty excited. Not gonna lie.. Anywho, so I’ve been listening to a lot of The Twelves remixes these days. Super catchy and fun. Unfortunately I was in LA, while they were playing up in SF. Bummer. Anywho, they have been keeping me distracted at work. My toes do a lot of tapping.

Ive also discovered Gigamesh. He’s got a pretty awesome remix of my favorite Radiohead song everrrr. Everthing In Its Right Place. Also check out the mix below.
