The greatest hip hop producer of all time, emblematic of the gritty East Coast sound. We talk to DJ Premier about his signature style of sample chops; how he always custom-tailors his beats for the rapper he’s working with, and creates everything on the spot. Armand and Premier reminisce about 90s New York clubs, while A-Trak geeks out over scratching.
Duck Sauce is the Grammy-nominated duo of seasoned DJs Armand Van Helden and A-Trak. While the connoisseur crowd might also know them for judging underground hot sauce competitions and hosting Zumba classes in the Southwest, most people know Duck Sauce as chart-topping producers who left their webbed footprints all over the biggest festivals in the world, from Coachella to EDC and Tomorrowland. But what “Duck Duck Goose” shows us is that being a DJ, fundamentally, means being interested in people and their stories. In this series, our beloved Ducks welcome a new guest on each episode, ranging from musical heroes like Todd Terry and DJ Premier to unexpected characters like marine biologist Patricia Brennan and alien civilization specialist Billy Carson. No feather is left unturned. You might even pick up some cooking tips along the way.
