Four words: the big bad wolf. Who knew the name of a kid’s fairy tale could have such a catchy sound to it? Well, the single that’s been stuck in everyone’s head is finally here–and with a snazzy remix too. Duck Sauce’s rave house anthem Big Bad Wolf has been dropped by the biggest names in house since the beginning of the summer, and now you can enjoy it through your headphones in crisp, 320kbps goodness. Along with the official release comes a proper tech house remix by France’s Gesaffelstein.
Duck Sauce manages to get the most out of Big Bad Wolf with a hard combination of kicks and snares. Brief pauses keep the sampling from getting stale, and fine tuning of different layers here and there add a nice finishing touch. Gesaffelstein’s remix is much darker, adding delays to the vocal sample and loud, melodious synth riffs to make it more of a proper club track. A-Trak and Armand van Helden definitely picked the right producer to remix the track for them. Check out the absurd (and very NSFW) video here.
