We got to get our fill of A-Trak and the Fool’s Gold brigade last week in South Beach, FL at the Red Bull Guest House. Needless to say, it was a memorable day. For those of you who weren’t able to attend, you’ll be able to get your earful with select US and European tour dates.
Following the chart-topping success of last Fall’s Tuna Melt EP and last week’s Tuna Melt Remixes, A-Trak keeps it moving this week by unveiling tour dates across the globe. In the US, the April Fools club tour keeps Trizzy close to his loyal base as he embarks to demolish sweaty venues across the continent. Forever bridging scenes and genres, our boy then heads to Europe for the A-Trak Vs The World tour: a series of eclectic back-to-back DJ sets with peers as varied as Mark Ronson, Just Blaze and Tiga.
An A-Trak live set is as exciting as watching a star athlete: he is one of the only DJs still incorporating elements of turntablism into his performances, but the showmanship is not at the sake of energy and brazen style. He’s been demonstrating this with the “Short Cuts” DJ routine video series, in which he deconstructs and rebuilds a track on his turntables; this time none other than his anthemic collaboration with Tommy Trash “Tuna Melt”. The spot debuts on POTATO, the electronic music network he curates alongside Skrillex and Diplo. To purchase tickets visit here for details.
