I’ve just received a hot package with the forthcoming A-Trak mix for Fabriclive mix series – Fabriclive 45, to be released on 13 April 2009 in UK and the rest of the world apart from USA (the release date here is 5 May 2009).
A-Trak, a head of Fool’s Gold label (with his mate Nick Catchdubs), former tour DJ of Kanye West, but most of all winner of the World DMC’s at the age of 15 (!!!) and member of legendary Q’Bert’s Scratch Piklz crew, is just barely 26 years and has 10 years of extremely prolific career track. For Fabriclive he prepared a mix covering a wide range of club music from Boys Noize through Baltimore edits to Skepta or Todd Terje remixes. I am not a big fan of nu-disco or house music but the name of A-Trak guarantees that the mix will not be a waste on my precious time. A-Trak somehow managed to prepare an edible cocktail of hot and funky dancefloor stuff with some pretty contagious beats and pieces (mostly well known in the club circuit). Highlights of the mix are: Daft Punk rmx, Aeroplane rmx (they visited Warsaw last Saturday), Dance Area - AA 24-7 (I love this track), Zombie Nation - Forza, Rob Threezy. Well, all in all A-Trak’s installment in Fabriclive series is nothing special, but still entertaining and could be quite handy at any home party.
