After making waves with their debut Fool’s Gold EP last spring, Low Pros, the production supergroup led by DJ hero A-Trak (currently riding high with Billboard Top 10 Dance/Electronic smash “Out The Speakers,” featured in Mountain Dew’s Superbowl commercial) and trap architect Lex Luger returns with the new single “Who Wanna Play.” ATL upstart Que (“OG Bobby Johnson”) barks anthemic bars over a thumping, BPM flipping beat that A-Trak and Lex cooked up with Atlanta’s reigning beatsmiths Metro Boomin and Sonny Digital (Young Thug, Makonnen, Travi$ Scott) and bass maven Brillz, setting the tempo for 2015 and beyond. The accompanying music video from Kanye West collaborator Nate Brown and Gustavo “Kidmograph” Torres is just as next level, re-imagining sci-fi classics like Blade Runner, Akira, and Mad Max for the WorldStar generation.
Trizzy hit Chicago to sit down with RSVP Gallery for their new Q&A series. To celebrate, the RSVP crew created a mini Fool’s Gold collab capsule featuring a FG x RSVP tee in black and gold colorways and (in proper A-Trak fashion) a set of turntable slipmats. Watch the vid and grab the gear while it lasts! Read More

Dance music crown holder A-Trak adds another jewel to his catalog of boundary-pushing music videos with “Push,” premiering today on TheFADER.com. Director Ramon Ayala creates a truly surreal, decadent world that flips “party” scenes inside out. “My approach to dance music has always been a bit left, so the last thing I wanted was one of those sparkler bottle ‘lets make this night live forever!’ videos,” says A-Trak. “Instead, I wanted to make something with the opulence of a rap video, but shot like a renaissance painting. It’s kind of like Eyes Wide Shut meets Burning Man.” Starring ATL producer TM88 (808 Mafia), a cast of European semi-nude models, and a tiger, “Push” is audiovisual indulgence like none other. Watch it immediately and get “Push” now on iTunes!
