I’m a little excited about Parklife this year. The line up seems to be a little more diverse than last year and also a lot deeper in talent. Last year had a couple of big acts but this year is going to have me rocking all day.
But as with a lot of music I have no idea who plays what song until I hear it. So to help any one else out who has the same problem, here is my Parklife mix tape of all the artists that are playing at Parklife with a few extras thrown in for the Perth locals that are playing at my event.

Could we see a Magnetic Man and Katy B feature?
I Need Air – Sounds alright
Perfect Stranger (feat. Katy B) – It’s real good. The version without her is great to.

The Ashton Shuffle
Your Love – These guys do some good dancey mixes
Start Again – I quite like this song. Gets me grooving.
The Naked And Famous
Punching in A Deam – Top song
Young Blood – Another great song
Girls Like You – Bit of a step down from their others songs
Bit of an old classic aren’t they. Here’s a couple of my favourites.
Fit But You Know It – Love this one
Don’t Mug Yourself – Yeah, been in this situation
Illmerica – Reminded me a bit of Daft Punk but not quite as good
Undertaker – Not really rocking me
Yacht Club DJs
Tamborine Dream – They kind of do these crazy mix ups. Saw them at falls and they were pretty good
Touch – Old classics mixed good
Not quite sure I get it. There’s some dubstep influence but it seems a little unrefined.
Black and Blunt
Can’t Get Enough – Not bad. Worth watching if they are one of the early sets
The Key – They are pretty big here in Perth. Hopefully an in person live review from Saturday night as they’re playing. This songs not bad
This sounds pretty awesome to be honest. Heaps of energy. Too short though!
Nothing found for this one
Halo – Seen this guy a couple of times and he’s pretty good. Layers all the sounds himself. Would love a Kimbra vs Sam Perry set.
Alright but not super impressive. Sort of poppy rock dance.
Tee El and Blend
Nothing found for this one
The Pearly Whites
Dubstep mixes. Not a bad sound to some of the stuff they do.
Suckerpunch – This is just a teaser. Not teasing enough as I wasnt that impressed.
Tom Drummond vs JMC
Not bad but not sure.
