Hudson Mohawke Makes His Mark On Duck Sauce’s ‘NRG’
Duck Sauce - NRG (Hudson Mohawke Remix) [Fool's Gold]

You’ve heard the original; you’ve heard the massive remix from Skrillex and friends; now, forget everything you know about Duck Sauce’s NRG in order to fully prime your ears for aural pleasure of Hudson Mohawke’s remix.

HudMo takes great pleasure in recontextualizing his source material here, adding whimsical arpeggiated synths and bright orchestral flourishes smack-dab on top of the original track. The remix strikes a careful balance between the old and the new, alternately coming off like an especially intricate edit and a original track in its own right that just happens to sample the same energetic disco loop that Duck Sauce uses to such great effect.

Duck Sauce’s debut LP Quack is expected to drop April 15 via Fool’s Gold.
