A-Trak and Friend Within are a house music tag team like none other on the soaring, stomping “Blaze.” A-Trak first enlisted the UK club champ to remix his feel good summer single “Work It Out,” and their debut original collaboration is a supercharged sequel. With chunky, funky drum work, ecstatic piano riffs, and an insistent, cut up vocal, “Blaze” keeps A-Trak’s uptempo hot streak going well into the new year.

Da Odd Couple is Rob Swift and Mista Sinista: legendary turntablists, founding members of the X-Ecutioners crew (who collaborated with everyone from Kool G Rap and Cypress Hill to Mike Patton and Mike Shinoda) and, alongside the late Roc Raida, early mentors to a teenage Canadian DJ prodigy named A-Trak. The duo’s self titled EP dropping on Trizzy’s Fool’s Gold label isn’t just a modern day turntable hero paying tribute to his OGs, but an energetic, psychedelic collection of scratch-based beats that (head) nod to the future while embracing the genre’s roots. In true FG fashion, it sounds like nothing else out right now! Listen Now!
