The Duck Sauce legacy continues; production duo Armand Van Helden and A-Trak are back at it again, giving Chromeo’s Hot Mess a remix treatment. Chromeo had also teamed up with electropop singer Elly Jackson of La Roux to rework Hot Mess from their latest album Business Casual.
Duck Sauce went to work on this groovy, 80s inspired electro-funk tune, delivering a heavy house bassline and pulling out Elly’s distinctive vocals. The duo carry on with their experimental sound, focusing on Elly’s catchy hook by repeating it over and over again, yet also managing to keep it interesting.
This may not be another Barbra Streisand, but it’s a solid tune for sure. Stay tuned for more; Duck Sauce is currently recording their first LP.
