A-Trak & Armand Van Helden present Duck Sauce "Big Bad Wolf"

Here we give you the latest release from Duck Sauce “Big Bad Wolf”, out now on iTunes. The follow up to the UK number 3 “Barbra Streisand” which has sold close to 400,000 copies.

Armand Van Helden & A-trak could of easily taken Duck Sauce down the commercial disco route but they have done what they do best and given us a follow up single completely out of the ordinary and set to encapsulate the nation again.

A-trak started out as a hip-hop DJ winning the DMC World DJ Championship an incredible 5 times (the first aged 15). Since then he has managed to merge rap and electronic music via his label Fool’s Gold and has worked closely with Kanye West, Kid Cudi, DJ AM & Boys Noize.

Armand Van Helden is a household name and deservedly so. AVH has had countless number 1’s and created some of the biggest dance records and remixes EVER – You Don’t Know Me, Bonkers, My My My, Professional Widow etc.

Together they form a deadly duo and call themselves Duck Sauce.

“Big Bad Wolf” is already gaining a momentous amount of support with Zane Lowe declaring it the ‘Hottest Record In The World’ and heavyweight support from Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Fatboy Slim, Basement Jaxx, Steve Angello, Chris Lake, Calvin Harris, Cassius and many more.

You couldn’t escape their first single aNYway, it was an anthem in 2009 with DJ’s from across every genre smashing it out. In 2010 they returned with Barbra Streisand. Which as we know went onto worldwide success and who could forget the remarkable video that featured cameo’s from Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Diplo, QuestLove, Todd Terry and many more!

Big Bad Wolf is one of those records that instantly captures you like ‘Barbra Streisand’ did, expect to see the Wolf Dance on the dancefloor!

Lovelle Featured On Yahoo's OMG

Ray Foxx featuring Lovelle "La Musica (The Trumpeter)" is OUT NOW on iTunes

If you've not yet heard of Lovelle you will have done soon. The London-born singing sensation has featured on Ray Foxx's single, appeared in glossy magazines, performed at Glastonbury...and yet still works part-time in New Look.

Here's the heads up on everything you need to know about this new star, from the girl herself.

Lovelle loves...

Fashion I love furs. I also like jumpers - sometimes people say they can't wear certain things because they're curvy or skinny, but I think jumpers hanging off your shoulders always looks good. Leggings will always be in and you can accessorise them with pumps of brogues.

Shoes I always wear flats, although wedges are God's gift right now. They're the best thing in the world because they don't burn your feet. I love trainers. I can't count how many I have. I had to chuck the boxes out the other day because they were taking up so much room. I have a shoe rack with 40 pairs on and another cupboard full as well.

Performing I like to talk to people. I like chatting with the crowd. My home space is when I'm with my guitarist, chilling, doing my versions of things and the fact people are coming to watch. I love doing things live with instruments. It's just a nice feeling, that's where my comfort zone is.

Amy Winehouse She was 100% real. She never faked being anyone else. She got so far being herself and doing the msic that she wanted. I'd like to be like her in her honest presence and the fact she did the music she wanted. I never got to see her perform, but I saw her once in Oxford Circus. I was on the bus going to school and I couldn't get off. I was so upset.
