Duck Sauce – Radio Stereo

It’s been three years since the release of the huge hit Barbra Streisand (woah, three years…), but Duck Sauce is back with a new song- Radio Stereo.  A-Trak and Armand Van Helden, the guys behind Duck Sauce, have a new record dropping on 10/29, and we can only hope that this album will also make us want to frolic through New York City. Check out Radio Stereo and early previews of the new album in the BBC Essential Mix link below!

ACITM Summer Music Essentials (Pt. 2/2)

Here’s part 2 of the Summer Music Essentials. Enjoy!

If you missed part 1, click here.

Songs Everyone Loves

These tracks are for the people that hate a certain type of genre or for people that hate every single song regardless of what it is. The people that wish the Beatles were still around and take every opportunity to tell you so. These songs are enjoyable for everyone; watch as the foot discreetly starts tapping along to the beat and notice how hours later the stuck in the 70’s music fan is still humming the song they heard in your car.

A comprehensive Spotify playlist is available at the bottom. Enjoy and feel free to add on!

The Classics

These are the songs you can get away with playing whenever, wherever during the summer season. Anyone can be at your party or in your car, and they will generally be ok with the tracks. The “I miss the golden era of music” people will even be satisfied.

Wavefront 2012 Wrap Up (Pictures + Video)

Arguably the party of the summer tore through Montrose Beach this weekend as part of the inaugural Wavefront Beachside Music Festival. World renowned names such as Duck Sauce, Boys Noize, Erick Morillo, and Eric Prydz graced the stage and took the Chicago crowd weaving through blistering techno, crunchy electro, and classic Chicago house tracks. Armed with disposable cameras and a cell phone, I attended both days and was blown away.

Pictures and more after the jump!
