Duck Sauce, the project born from the union of DJ Armand Van Helden and A-Trak, has a great new video for their song “Barbara Streisand.” The star studded video has become a favourite on our playlist in the past couple of weeks. To help you become familiar we surveyed the internet to find out what their deal is. Check out their stats after the jump.
Members: DJ Armand Van Helden and A-Trak
Sounds like: Fatboy Slim + Cake + Girl Talk
What is duck sauce: A common condiment that accompanies Chinese food. It’s pretty much the same thing as plum sauce. Delicious with (vegan) spring rolls.
Did you catch all those cameos: Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Yelawolf, Smif-n-Wessen, Chromeo, Diplo,
?uestlove, Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend, Santigold, and DJ Premier all pop up in the video for “Barbara Streisand.”
Hear that hook: The “ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo” vocal riff in “Barbara Streisand” was swiped from “Hallo Bimmelbahn” by German band Nighttrain from 1973. Check it out here.
Connection to my team the Calgary Flames: According to Duck Sauce’s Twitter, “Barbara Streisand” is the NHL team’s new goal celebration song.
Why our team loves them: Never since Vampire Weekend’s “Giving Up The Gun” has a video had so many cameos and we love the surprise you get when watching the video for the first time. The song and the video are so summer-y, it makes us forget that it snowed in Toronto yesterday. Plus, it will forever remind us of Halloween 2010.
