SONG OF THE DAY: Duck Sauce – NRG (Skrillex, Kill the Noise, Milo & Otis Remix)

The last we heard from the Duck Sauce duo (Armand Van Helden and A-Trak) was Duck Dropping – a 4-track EP with tracks like “Louie the First” and “Party in Me,” which were pretty straightforward tracks built around ’70s/’80s samples. They weren’t bad, just not as special as “aNYway” or “It’s You.” Out of nowhere comes this remix of “NRG,” a track based on a vocal that could have come from a Boney M track (or be a sample replay) which starts like a late ’90s/early ’00s Illicit remix and then slams into modern and distorted electro. You can clearly delineate which parts are the original Duck Sauce production and which parts are more from the remix, and the interplay back and forth is quite refreshing. This is one of those tracks that will catch a dancefloor by surprise, and it has the kind of refreshing quirkiness that made “Barbra Streisand” such a fun leftfield pop hit. As much as I can’t wait to hear the original version of “NRG,” I have a feeling that this remix will be the version that every club DJ will be playing.
