[Coachella 2011 Review] Best Coast, Death From Above 1979, Duran Duran, Duck Sauce, Kanye West (page 4)
Artist Sound: Dance-floor friendly turntablism meets DJ-sampling of older hip-hop, disco, and house music.
Crowd Response: Somehow everyone got duck bills. Suffice to say, the tent was packed and the crowd was going wild.
Performance Adjectives: Exuberant, dance-y, lively
Notable Songs Played: The only one we could tell was “Barbara Streisand,” but that seemed to last about twenty minutes anyway.
Poignant Moments: We only heard this, but apparently Danny Devito was walking around wearing a duck bill.
Hype Vs. Reality: Even if you don’t like dance music, DJs, or the constant thump of house, Duck Sauce does a good job of making you feel like you are not at a rave with a bunch of teenagers rolling around you. Their mix of musical genres and sampling styles has enough witty sonic touches to keep the listener engaged.
