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!

Fool’s Gold Radio – January 2013 Mix (Mixed by A-Trak)

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?

Fool’s Gold Radio – October 2012

If you follow TNJ you know the unbelievable respect and admiration that I have for A-Trak is only second to my sheer awe of his mixing skills. He’s one of the only people I can sit and listen to for an hour, have no idea what any of the songs are, can’t tell where one of them begins or ends, and I’m still 1000% engaged. I love it. The Fool’s Gold head honcho takes to the decks again for his record label’s October mix, playing out Tuna Melt, his HUGE collaboration with the Aussie rock star Tommy Trash! Track listing after the jump!

Fools Gold Radio – August 2012 Mix

If you want to hear what I’ve been talking about when I say A-Trak lays down some unbelievable work behind the decks, you may wanna check out his Fools Gold Radio mix for August. Mixing in his world-class scratching with a track selection that doesn’t feature a single usual overplayed commercial chart-topper, the hour long mix is refreshing and interesting the full way through. He premiers a couple of tracks that are getting released through his label soon as well as new tracks from Boys Noize & his own remix of Spectrum with Clockwork.
