Posted on Jul 9th, 2010

If you missed the festival debut of Duck Sauce (featuring A-Trak, Armand Van Helden, and…an enormous inflatable duck) at EDC, fret not: Trizzy has you covered with this great video recap and pics from the night, along with some shots from his Travis x A-Trak performance at the same fest.

For more DS action, you can finally grab their perennial summer jam “aNYway” in North America:

New Chromeo Single: "Don't Turn The Lights On"

Posted on Jun 29th, 2010

Chromeo – Don’t Turn The Lights On from bang on on Vimeo.

I have an older brother, his name is David and he has a band called Chromeo. You know this, right? I just need to make sure once in a while.

(Are you following them on twitter yet? They’re new in town.)

Chromeo have a new album just around the corner, and having witnessed the brick-by-brick assembly of that beast, I can’t wait for the world to hear it. Dave always sings me his songs before he records them. Somewhere on one of my old MiniDV tapes I have footage of him doing “Momma’s Boy” on the air-Wurli and air-bells when it was just in his head… I need to dig that up. But I digress. They recorded the new album at a studio just a few blocks from my apartment, so I’d go visit them every evening and was the go-to “how does this sound?” guy. I even tracked their vocals on one of the songs. But truthfully, the way they work is extremely self-contained. If they do reach out to someone on the outside, it’ll be some random saxophonist, which has happened a few times already.

Now it’s all done, and it is my pleasure to present to you: “Don’t Turn The Lights On”. Buy it on iTunes! (That’s the US link but it’s also out in the UK.)

When Trizzy Met Drizzy

Posted on Jun 28th, 2010

O Canada

For those of you who checked out Drake’s album you may have noticed I’m scratching on song #5, “Show Me A Good Time”. Here’s the story of how that came about.

You could think that there was some sort of Canadian connection, or even a Kanye connection for that matter. But there wasn’t. When So Far Gone came out last year and Drizzy’s buzz went through the roof of the stratosphere of the ceiling of the galaxy, I remember thinking “wow, this is interesting, this is the first time there’s a Canadian rapper that I know absolutely nothing about.” Canada, while being a huge country on the atlas, has a very small music biz. Having been active in it for over a decade, I can tell you that usually everyone knows everyone. But the truth is, I left Montreal 4 years ago and Drake is pretty young, so in my view he just came out of nowhere. Read More

Heaps Decent x A-Trak

Posted on Jun 10th, 2010

You probably have heard about the Heaps Decent nonprofit currently fighting the good fight in Australia – if not, here’s the rundown. Last year on a day off from his shows on the Parklife tour, A-Trak went down to the Riverina Juvenile Justice Centre and put this track together with kids at the HD workshop.

Heaps Decent feat MC Huz & The Riverina Crew – Anywhere But Here (Produced by A-Trak) by Heaps Decent

Read the full story on the HD blog – they are offering the track for free to encourage you to spread the word about the program, and you can also make a donation to ensure that they can continue to bring music workshops like this to underprivileged kids for years to come.

Posted on May 4th, 2010

Starting this week, people walking the streets and riding the subways of NYC and Brooklyn have been greeted by the handsome trio of FG founders A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs and Dust La Rock, mugging it up for Bushmills’ new “Since Way Back” ad campaign, also featuring portraits of friends Chromeo, DFA, No Mas, and Kai Regan and co. There’s painted wall-size versions (ours is next to Alife Rivington Club), subway ads, and proper billboards throughout the metro area. Keep us posted with your Twitpics, etc when spotted!

For more, check the Bushmills Facebook page, and see more pics (and video of our photo shoot at Jonathan Mannion’s storied NYC studio) after the jump. Read More
