SONG OF THE DAY: Duck Sauce – “Radio Stereo”
The duo of Armand Van Helden and A-Trak are back, following up their doo-wop-inspired “It’s You” with “Radio Stereo.” Based on samples from The Members’ “Radio,” the ska-punk song is transformed into bouncy electro dub with horns and an oddly ELO-inspired feel. Yes, there is a mash of styles, but it works way better than you would imagine. Dutch heavyweights Bingo Players mash different grooves together for a big room monster complete with bits of ’90s Daft Punk, hard electro, and stadium. It’s just this kind of randomness that we’ve come to expect from Duck Sauce and we can’t wait to see what kind of visual orgy they concoct for the video. After this and their other singles “aNYway,” “Barbara Streisand,” “Big Bad Wolf,” and “It’s You,” we also can’t wait to hear what else they come up for their album Quack, which is due to be released later this year,
