A-Trak has been all over this year: remixing the likes of Justice and Martin Solveig, collaborating in the studio with Juicy J and Foster The People, dropping singles with Dillon Francis and DJ Zinc, gracing the cover of Billboard and starring in a Grey Goose ad campaign, all while touring non-stop around the globe – from massive electronic music festivals Ultra and I Love Techno to the raucous, invite only Fool’s Gold House Party tour.
The man GQ calls “the most skillful DJ in the world” now closes out the year with Tuna Melt, a new, four song EP out December 4th. Each track is a collaboration with an eclectic choice of producers: Beatport chart-topper Tommy Trash, rookies of the year GTA, Swedish super-group Galantis and Fool’s Gold’s own Oliver, highlighting the musical diversity, irreverence and humor that we have grown to expect from Trizzy.
The endless struggle between man and machine finally gets the soundtrack it deserves thanks to Funkin Matt, whose stomping, massive “I Wish” is a cyborg anthem for the ages. Get it now on Beatport!
Already a staple of festival sets from A-Trak, Crookers, Nicky Romero and many more, the song’s metallic grooves and yearning vocal (“I wish I was a robot… I wish I could fly…”) smash together to create perhaps the finest track yet from this Oslo up-and-comer. B-side”Rasp” is just as electric, with big room chords cascading over a massive, robo-voice bassline. Plug in and play ‘em out…
Preview the two new tracks (and more FM goodies) on his recent “I Wish” promo mix.
Donovans’ “House Of God” was one of the highlights of our inaugural Clubhouse compilation. But was that enough? No! Donovans are back (and now a solo project) with the new label 11Heads, and this excellent freebie release, the “Jackin Lovin / Sneaky Charm” EP. Download it now!

We brought DAY OFF to Los Angeles last month, throwing our long running NYC bash in Cali for the first time ever. Suffice it to say… it was crazy!

And when it was all said and done, we threw an afterparty with the likes of Dave1, RL Grime, Carnage, Franki Chan… Good times!
