A-Trak – 10 Seconds Remixes

Posted on Dec 9th, 2022

Though he hung up his fedora long ago, A-Trak is a man of many hats. Earlier this year, he surprised the whole DJ community by dropping 2 EPs entirely produced on the mythical SP1200 drum machine. It even earned him a glowing review in the New Yorker. Some of his DJ friends volunteered to make remixes and club-friendly edits of the jams, that were intentionally rough around the edges. Amine Edge & DANCE, the globe-trotting Frenchmen, fine-tuned an edit of “Spit” that has been a mainstay in Skream and Jackmaster’s sets; and the legend Laidback Luke took “Cortez” into a Mongoloidz-meets-Roulé sound on his “1997” remix.   Listen now.

A-Trak & Lee Foss – Free (feat. Uncle Chucc)

Posted on Sep 30th, 2022

It started with a DJ blend. A-Trak was revisiting Goodie Mob’s classic first album Soul Food and was touched by Cee-Lo’s spiritual vocals on the intro. It sparked an idea: speeding them up and throwing them over a house beat. And just like that, “Free” was born. He later linked with 1500 Or Nothing member and Snoop collaborator Uncle Chucc to reinterpret the vocal, and enlisted Lee Foss to work on the earthy, percussive groove. Lee is already having a spectacular year, with his label Repopulate Mars hitting the top seller mark on Beatport.“Free” is a deeply moving song that reaches far beyond house music. It speaks to a basic human yearning for decency and unity, a raw feeling that anyone can get behind. Listen now.

A-Trak Bubble Guts (Braxe + Falcon Extended Remix)

Posted on Jun 9th, 2022

This is the stuff DJ dreams are made of. When A-Trak released his 10 Seconds Vol. 1 EP, a project made entirely on the SP1200 drum machine, French legends Alan Braxe and DJ Falcon were immediately drawn to it. Of course those two are no strangers to that sampler. The Daft Punk and Stardust affiliates made many of their early-2000s classics on the SP. Braxe + Falcon were in the middle of releasing their own (fantastic) collaborative project, too. A conversation started, stems were exchanged, and within a few days this incredibly funky remix landed in Trizzy’s inbox. The French Touch is alive and well!

A-Trak – 10 Seconds Vol 1

Posted on Mar 30th, 2022

At the height of the Covid-19 lockdown, A-Trak had a musical epiphany. Stuck at home experimenting, he remembered he had a broken E-Mu SP1200 in storage that he’d been meaning to fix for over 10 years. The mythical drum machine with a gritty 12-bit sound was the weapon of choice for so many of the producers who shaped A-Trak’s ear: from Pete Rock to Madlib, from DJ Muggs to Kenny Dope, from Todd Terry to Alan Braxe and DJ Falcon. After a chance repair job, Trizzy taught himself how to use the rare SP, chopped up everything in sight and quickly churned out the rawest house beats he’s ever made. The result is a two-part EP of uptempo head-nodders, stripped down and named after the notoriously short sample time of his new toy. Best served dirty and loud. Listen now!
