Following a wide-ranging series of collaborations from Duck Sauce’s disco romp Quack to the genre twisting Low Pros project with Lex Luger, “Push” announces a new chapter of solo material from DJ hero A-Trak. Timeless but still timely, “Push” melds festival-tested power with anthemic, emotional synth pop (courtesy vocalist Andrew Wyatt of Miike Snow fame), resulting in one of this year’s most unforgettable tunes. Spotify just premiered the exclusive track stream, listen to it below and check the “A-Trak Loves” Spotify playlist for more favorites.

Production supergroup Low Pros (A-Trak & Lex Luger) and G.O.O.D. Music artist of the year Travi$ Scott dive into the matrix for their artfully trippy “100 Bottles” music video, directed by acclaimed multimedia artists Nate Brown (Kanye West, Jay-Z, Beyoncé) and Gustavo Torres (aka Kidmograph). Further establishing Low Pros’ striking visual identity, the clip follows a semi-android Travi$ stumbling through a grisly, glitchy metropolis.
While A-Trak & Lex prepare the follow up to their debut Fool’s Gold release EP 1, fans can catch a rare live performance from Travi$ and the Low Pros collective at Fool’s Gold Day Off Atlanta on Saturday, 11/1 alongside Danny Brown, new ATL stars ILoveMakonnen, Que and OG Maco, and many more.
