Juvenile Joins A-Trak & Lex Luger’s Low Pros for Muscle

Their are few people who have secured their position in the music industry as well as A-Trak. He has found time to join up with esteemed hip-hop producer Lex Luger to create the collaborative project Low Pros besides being a DMC World Champion DJ at 15, tour DJ for Kanye West, a successful solo artist, label executive at Fool’s Gold records, occasional Huffington Post contributor and seemingly a bagillion other things. The newest track features early 2000′s hip-hop icon Juvenile for a record destined for the clubs. This track was preceded by the Travis Scott collaboration 100 Bottles which can be found on their upcoming EP1 out on Fool’s Gold Records.

Brillz and Travis Scott Join Low Pros AKA A-Trak/Lex Luger for ’100 Bottles’

The tag team of A-Trak and Lex Luger, otherwise known as Low Pros, have come together to release another single off their upcoming Fools Gold released record EP1 titled 100 Bottles with production assistance from none other than Brillz and vocals from Travi$ Scott. Between Brillz’ trapstyle production chops, Lux Luger’s knowledge of all things BIG, A-Trak’s ear and Travi$ Scott’s wide array of vocal capabilities, this as an absolute must-have for fans of big time bass.

Free Download: Phoenix – Trying To Be Cool (A-Trak Remix)

a-trak fools gold radio january

I’m not quite sure anyone does dance music as tastefully as the legendary A-Trak. French band Phoenix has been enjoying a real nice comback after a noticeable hiatus but their pop friendly sound makes them a prime candidate to be remixed by everyone and their mother. This remix has just enough electro grittiness to make it interesting but keeps the fun synths extremely dance-able and even better, it’s available for free download!

Duck Sauce Releases New Single ‘It’s You’

The quirky dance music duo of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden that combine forces to be Duck Sauce have graced the scene before with classics such as Barbra Streisand and Big Bad Wolf. They’ve now made their triumphant return to the spotlight with the release of the fun motown influenced track ‘It’s You’. It’s damn near impossible to dislike anything that these two put their feathers on (get it?) and this is no exception; THE QUACK IS BACK!

A-Trak – Fool’s Gold Radio Episode 18 (March 2013)

Fool's Gold Radio - Episode 18 (March 2013)

I always look forward to our monthly dose of FOOOOLS GOOOOOLD spun to perfection from mixing maestro A-Trak. As someone who really likes to sit down and listen to the “art” of DJing (at the risk of sounding slightly pretentious), there’s nothing better than being able to listen to how a 5-time DMC champion chooses to put together a set. It’s generally common that I will go through an entire hour without knowing a single song beforehand and it seems to be the case again and I don’t mind a bit. Eclectic track selection meets flawless mixing to make 60 minutes of easy listening and there’s even a world premiere of the Jack Beats remix of A-Trak’s collab with GTA called Landline!

A-Trak & Tommy Trash – Tuna Melt (Grandtheft Remix)

A-Trak & Tommy Trash - Tuna Melt (Grandtheft Remix)

Gotta love A-Trak’s Twitter following. An hour ago he enticed his fans with a trade: in celebration of his 300K followers he asked for 300 retweets so he could release Grandtheft’s remix of Tuna Melt. An hour later he put this up on his SoundCloud and it is awesome! After Grandtheft collaborated with Diplo for their haunting Sweet Nothing remix, he’s quickly come on my map of producers to watch in the near future. Grab the free download and you’ll understand why!

ASAP Rocky – LongLiveA$AP + Wild For The Night (Live on The Late Show w/ A-Trak, araabMUZIK & DJ Clark Kent)

ASAP Rocky - Wild For The Night (Live on The Late Show)

This is another major moment in music as seen live on The Late Show with David Letterman and I’m not sure I would’ve ever thought I’d say that about 3 months ago. Let’s dissect this. The first portion to this is that A$AP Rocky was even ON Letterman…just another testament to this guys crazy talent. He did LongLiveA$AP and the track Wild For The Night that he performed off of Long.Live.A$AP was produced by electronic music superstars Skrillex and Birdy Nam Nam so score yet another one for the “EDM to Mainstream” crossover and the versatility of these producers. To put the icing on top, he performed the track live with three of the best DJs in the entire world in A-Trak and DJ Clark Kent and the MVP of the MPC araabMUZIK. Grab Long.Live.A$AP on iTunes here to support the music and catch his awesome interview with BroBible here!

a-trak fools gold radio january

It’s that time agaaaaiiiiin. It’s nothing short of a treat when A-Trak takes to the decks and as I’ve said before, he’s possibly the only DJ on the planet that I’ve could listen to, have NO idea what a single song is, and still love ever second. If you want a tutorial on how the best of the best do it, sit down and take a listen to this; he drops tracks from all over the spectrum including personal favorites of mine Gimme Sum from Gregor Salto & Chocolate Puma, his own collaboration with Oliver Disco Nap from the Tuna Melt EP and a remix of Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe from Star Slinger that is 100% new to me. You know you’re getting an hour of nothing but the best dance music from the 5-time DMC World Champion so settle in and enjoy!

Fool’s Gold Radio – November 2012 Mix

It’s that time people. We’ve officially fallen into November which means its once again time for A-Trak to take to the decks for the monthly installment of Fools Gold Radio. In its 15th episode, the 5-time world turntablist champion spins us a great selection of tracks including his own collaboration with Lifelike and countless other tracks that I’d never heard before and then rushed to download in their entirety. You can see spurts of his technical genius around the 28th minute and after seeing him live at Camp Bisco XI, it’s safe to say there’s no denying his skill. I can’t imagine how lucky I’d have to be to get an opportunity to work with the guys at Fools Gold Records but hey we can dream right?
