We celebrated our seven year anniversary in style, bringing in Master P to rock alongside an all-fam edition of Just Blaze’s weekly “House Party” bash at Webster Hall in NYC. A-Trak played master of ceremonies while the No Limit general rocked alongside JB and “House Party” co-pilot DJ Soul, Fame School (rolling extra deep with Manolo Rose and many more) hometown club kings Nick Catchdubs and Brenmar (joined on the mic by Jersey’s Dougie F), MTL’s own Shash’U and party people galore.
Check some recap footage above, along with some photo galleries from Mel D. Cole / Village Slum (one and two) along with a collection from Sylvain Granier here. Some of our faves after the jump. Read More
Chart-topping electro duo The Chainsmokers work their magic on A-Trak’s “Push,” resulting in an all-hands-in-the-air mainstage essential filled with soaring builds and ecstatic synth riffs. Anthem status! Pre-order the Push EP on iTunes now to get this remix and the awesome original version now, and fresh takes from Cazzette, DallasK, GANZ and Shash’U on 11/25.
You already know A-Trak: the modern day DJ hero, the man behind the cultural powerhouse Fool’s Gold, the wearer of many hats (he owns 46). He brought cheeky disco to the top of the charts with Duck Sauce and has been one of the most sought-after remixers in electronic music. A master at bridging gaps between EDM and hip hop, last year saw him collaborate with Lex Luger in the trap supergroup Low Pros and resurrect Cam’ron with their acclaimed Federal Reserve project.
Now entering a new chapter in his career, A-Trak releases the single “Push” and finally showcases what’s in store for his solo material. Rooted in house music, the song melds the power of festival-tested anthems with soaring, emotional synth pop. Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt lends a delicate falsetto, creating an instant earworm that feels both timeless and timely.
The release comes backed by a full EP of remixes from electro duos du jour The Chainsmokers and Cazzette, rising star DallasK, head-nod specialist GANZ and exceptionally funky new Fool’s Gold signing Shash’U, rocketing across the whole spectrum of modern-day dance music. The EP is out worldwide on 11/25, pre-order Push on iTunes and receive the original instantly! Read More

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.

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.
