Parklife 2011 really was a thing of beauty. It came complete with perfect weather, a great line-up, good crowd and short drink queues. The organisers have found the perfect setting for the festival at Sidney Myer Music Bowl in the heart of Melbourne. In such lush surroundings it’s easy to forget that the CBD is only a quick stroll along the Yarra away. And so the scene was set for another cracking round of cutting edge electronic and indie vibes.

While I could have guessed it was a sample, the extent to which Duck Sauce utilised the original actually quite surprised me. Here'e the original, which I'm sure you know well.
Ahead of his Australian Tour, which includes a stop off at Field Day in Sydney with an exclusive Duck Sauce show, Layla Clarke chats with Montreal born, New York based DJ A-Trak.
I’m not particularly sure why Barbara Streisand is the star of Duck Sauce’s aptly titled track "Barbara Streisand", and I often wonder how she feels about it.
