Duck Sauce Drops New Single and Video, ‘Mesmerize’

Duck Sauce, the duo of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden, has delivered a one-of-a-kind new single and video. “Mesmerize” is another one of the duo’s signature funky, disco-influenced house tracks built around a repeating vocal sample.

The animated visual, which is slightly NSFW, is a mind-altering trip that starts off as a typical Duck Sauce club gig. Over the course of the video, the duo realizes that they may be in a simulation. Their journey then takes a turn for the metaphysical in ways that need to be seen to be understood.

Watch Duck Sauce’s “Mesmerize” video above and download the track here.

Da Odd Couple Drop Star-Studded Single ‘Sinphony’

Legendary turntablists DJ Rob Swift and Mista Sinista, also known as Da Odd Couple, have dropped their latest single “Sinphony.” Produced by Eitan Noyze, the track from two of the X-Executioners also features cameos from an impressive legion of fellow iconic spinners — Kid Capri, DJ Q-Bert, DJ Ace, and DJ Total Eclipse. The track is from Da Odd Couple’s forthcoming album.

Executive produced by Sinista and Dr. Butcher, Swift notes that “whether you’re an O.G. Bronx DJ legend, skratcher from the west coast, ‘beat juggler’ from the east or a cop who DJs, we can share the same stage and all collaborate together with one intention, cuttin’ sh*t up!”

The track is heavily based around a sample from The Juice Crew’s legendary 1988-released single “The Symphony.” The idea of a heavy-hitting lineup of DJs on Swift’s posse cut is similar to the 32-year old track being produced by Marley Marl and featuring Juice Crew members Masta Ace, Kool G Rap, Craig G, and Big Daddy Kane.

Listen to Da Odd Couple’s “Sinphony” above and download or stream it on all major platforms.
