A-Trak and Cam’ron are back! Summer anthem “Dipsh*ts” features uncut Cam’ron slick talk over triumphant instrumental blasts from A-Trak, Oliver and Just Blaze, a Dipset-repping Juelz Santana on the hook, and “Champagne Dame” (aka Federal Reserve executive producer Damon Dash) providing a legendary, song closing rant, complete with “Foooooooool’s Gold” shout!
This filthy cut gets the epic video it deserves thanks to director Ricky Saiz, who follows up his work for Beyonce and Supreme with another iconic clip, capturing the rugged glory and inimitable fashion sense of Harlem and the Diplomats with true uptown-meets-downtown flair. From kids in airbrushed A-Trak tees to Cam’s floor-length mink, it’s the most style you’ll see in a video all year.

Complex just premiered the new Party Supplies video for “Going Back To New York (The Knocks Remix),” directed by Rik Cordero and shot entirely on Super-8 film at outerborough locations with personal significance to the guys.

You’ll also be able to snag these remixes on the upcoming Tough Love vinyl and CD release, so stay tuned…
Duck Sauce continue their streak of genuinely next level music videos with a clip for new single “NRG,” which just premiered on Buzzfeed. Director Dugan O’Neal and comedian Jon C. Daly (Kroll Show) take late-night infomercials to truly psychotic heights, with A-Trak and Armand Van Helden getting in on the increasingly insane action themselves. It’s the perfect visual accompaniment to Duck Sauce’s new album Quack, stuffed full of even more earworm hooks, feel-good beats, and unfiltered cosmic ridiculousness. Get it now on iTunes along with the “NRG” remixes from Skrillex, Kill The Noise, Milo & Otis and Hudson Mohawke. (There’s also a DJ friendly version of Quack on Beatport if that’s your thing.)

Mere days before they debut a brand-new Duck Sauce stage show at Coachella (complete with 20 foot inflatable duck!) A-Trak and Armand Van Helden have unleashed a full album stream of their magnum opus Quack, out 4/15. The twelve track LP is an instant dance classic and cut-and-paste milestone, mashing one of a kind pop smashes like “Barbra Streisand” with anthemic club collages and genuinely hysterical skits worthy of the Jerky Boys.
