Duck Sauce disburse first original of 2021, ‘Ask Me’
With “Ask Me,” Duck Sauce step into 2021. The calendar-opening single will be familiar to some, considering that A-Trak and Armand Van Helden first aired the single in December 2020 during their BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. The end-of-year stint was their follow-up to their 2013 Essential Mix guest slot on the Pete Tong-guided platform.
“Ask Me” samples The Supreme Jubilees’ 1979 original “Do You Believe,” evidencing A-Trak and Van Helden’s commitment to channeling the soul of house music by paying homage to the disco, R&B, and funk genres. “Ask Me” comes packaged with their October 2020 single, “Mesmerize,” with both tracks dignifying the other’s apparent allegiance to earlier musical influences. Both tracks combine the best of both worlds—wicked old-school grooves with a newfound sound.
