Duck Sauce hominids Alain Macklovitch (aka A-Trak) and Armand Van Helden have launched the inaugural episode of their talk show, Duck Duck Goose, with the effort’s very first special guest, Todd Terry.
Terry is known for bolstering the Chicago house music movement of the mid ’80s in the New York scene by cross-sampling Chicago house and its Detroit offshoot with New York hip-hop breaks. His sound cultivated an energetic wave that jump-started acid house and rave movements in both the United Kingdom and United States.
In the hour-and-a-half segment, Terry shares stories about the early days of JAY-Z, Just Ice, his friend accidentally erasing a Rakim, and much more.Upcoming Duck Duck Goose guests include David Guetta, Billy Carson (of @4biddenknowledge fame), DJ Premier, a high-ranking member of the Flat Earth society, and many more. Watch the first episode of Duck Duck Goose below.

Make no mistake—dance music is born from black culture. Without black creators, innovators, selectors, and communities, the electronic dance music we hold so dear would simply not exist. In short, dance music is deeply indebted to the global black community and we need to be doing more. Black artists and artists of color have played a profound role in shaping the sound and culture of dance music and now more than ever, it is necessary for everyone in the music community to stand up for the people that have given us so much. Dancing Astronaut pledges to make every effort to be a better ally, a stronger resource, and a more accountable member of the global dance music community. Black Lives Matter—get involved here:
