The 60 minute program, hosted by Cosmic Gate members Nic Chagali and DJ Bossi, will feature Cosmic Gate tracks, exclusive first-listens, as well as deep tracks. There will also be info on up-and-coming gigs, a handpicked selection of songs curated by Nic and Bossi, and updates on the acclaimed duo’s sixth studio album.
Actor turned singer, Mack Wilds, brings us his new visual for the "Henny (Remix)" featuring Mobb Deep, French Montana and Busta Rhymes. In the video, one scene features Wilds, 24, clinking two bottles together whilst sprawled out on a couch. Another scene shows Wilds partying with a bevy of beautiful women along with French, Busta, Havoc and Prodigy, as they all sing odes to their favorite alcoholic beverage, Hennessy. The “Henny Remix” is featured on the Grammy nominated singer's debut album New York: A Love Story, available on iTunes now.
Do you remember the first time you heard 'Barbara Streisand?' At first, it probably seemed like just some hilariously catchy track that would enjoy a little fun in the sun for a while, but then came the music video. With celebrity cameos by Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Chromeo, and more worked into the mix, the track found its way on to every TV that could play it, eventually becoming so popular, you could hear 'Barbara Streisand' rocking in the oddest of places (we're talking department stores and supermarkets). That, however, was back 2010, when Duck Sauce was just starting to make a splash on the scene. Since then, the duo of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden have been making a whole lot of noise with their unique fusion of hip-hop, house, and disco, not to mention the added flavor of their quack-fueled comedy that has become the iconic characteristic of all things Duck Sauce. Now, years, millions of YouTube views, and a few VMA nominations later, Duck Sauce finally releases their highly anticipated full-length album, Quack.
