DJ’s always have me falling in love and Duck Sauce, a duo featuring legendary DJ’s Armand Van Helden and A-Trak, are no different. Their new track “Barbra Streisand” is sure to bump in the club. Although the song lacks lyrical substance (it is a dance track) the beats are infectious and guaranteed to make you want to dance all night. N0w, dope beats are great but add to that a video that features more cameos than a season of Entourage and I think we’ve got a winner.
The video features cameos from ?uestlove, Pharrell Williams, Ryan Leslie, Kanye West, DJ Premier, Chromeo, and my girl Santigold dancing Kid ‘n Play style with A-Trak.
I hope to hear more from this duo so I may add their music to the soundtrack that is my life.
I don’t think we’ve ever done a feature on a DJ so Cam Jus will be our first. I first met Cam outside of a Stussy event. When we were introduced the first thing I say is “My name Kam too!” Little did I know this unsuspecting guy would provide the soundtrack to my party life! DJ Cam Jus is no newbie, iPod DJ (yes he still uses vinyl…shocker I know!), he’s got six years in the game. He’s a professional that see’s the art in DJing and takes the time to mix club music, with hits, b-side tracks and oldies but goodies that you didn’t even know you missed until you hear them again. How many DJ’s can transition from Backyard, to N*E*R*D, to Reggae and it actually sound good?
I’m always in search of a good party playlist, and I’m pretty sure I’ve found it in Cam Jus’s Blast3. I listened to part of last week and was sincerely impressed, but what set it over the edge was when I listened to the entire mix, while getting dressed to go out on Saturday night. You know how it is, trying to pick the right outfit, trying to get your hair just right and you need something to pump you so you just don’t give up on the whole thing and get back in bed. Blast3 got me pumped!
I was boosted when I heard the REAL Pretty Girls by Backyard Band (BYB), for the first time in ages, it took me right back to freshmen year of college. I couldn’t help but love hearing everything from Sizzla, to Ludacris, to Gucci, to Maxwell, and Bootsy Collins, all in one mix. Cam J us is a music lovers DJ and he’s made a fan out of me.
