Ladies and gentlemen, the quack attack is back.

Duck Sauce, the DJ super-duo composed of Armand Van Helden and A-Trak, has finally delivered its long-awaited debut album, the aptly named Quack, four years after the group first splashed onto the scene with the crossover hit Barbra Streisand.

As you would expect, the 12-track album is a fantastic and frenzied collection of disco house vibes. The LP opens with the unearthly space-age cut Chariot of the Gods, and things quickly begin to get groovier (and weirder) from there. Charlie Chazz & Rappin Ralph sounds like a old-school collab with The Sugarhill Gang, while It’s You hearkens back to the early 1960s for some good ol’ fashioned doo-wop. Switching things up with every track, they channel their inner Chromeo on Everyone, and throw down some sexy scratches on Ring Me, before closing things out with a pure disco groove, Time Waits For No-One.

Littered throughout the album are a series of odd and hilarious samples and splices, but unlike many of their contemporaries, Duck Sauce do it with a purpose. By merging classic vibes with fresh and funky new sounds, the duo has managed to create a sound that is simultaneously nostalgic and timeless. Forget Disco Demolition Night–as long as Duck Sauce is around, then disco is alive and well.
