Whether you're soaring high after the inspiring show Lady Gaga put on last night, or still wallowing in your sorrows from a loss, it's time to continue indulging on "Fried Chicken" even after yesterday's indulgences. But this isn't food, instead, it's the latest single from Armand van Helden by the same name. We've seen the New York City house icon retire and then reemerge over and over through his solo projects, Duck Sauce, and impressive historical compilations, and this time, he's done it again alongside Australian producer Komes.
Out on Astrx Records, "Fried Chicken" is a glorious, melt-in-your-mouth homage to funk and house music's roots. Channelling the mood from his Duck Sauce hits, Armand van Helden proves once over that his crate digging and sampling skills are impressive, delivering the catchiness and infectiousness whose recipe delivers success.
