A few weeks ago we ran through Austin for two mega parties during SXSW: a label showcase at the brand new Beauty Ballroom, and a team-up Super Party with Mad Decent and Check Yo Ponytail that took over BB as well as the giant Emo’s East down the street. Suffice it to say… shit got live!
From A$AP (and Sammy Bananas!) stagedives to A-Trak’s big-room scratchery, these were parties none of us will forget. Check out our recap video of both nights above, along with photos from our in-house shutterbug Josh Wehle (as well as a CYP’s full cinema-style featurette on Super Party) after the jump. Read More
Head over to iTunes to grab the new LP of club mixes Surkin commissioned from his pals. Everybody from Rustie to Brodinski has their way with tunes from the USA album, including our own A-Trak, who whipped up a chunky take on “Never Let Go,” which you can check below. Lezdooit!
It’s that time of year again… we’re throwing a daytime bash for all the party people headed to Palm Springs this weekend for Coachella. It’s going down this Sunday, April 15th as part of the Hard Rock Hotel’s Music Mansion. Update: added some big gunz to the lineup in the form of Flying Lotus and Oliver, who’ll be joining Daniel LeDisko, Nick Hook of Cubic Zirconia, (Thee) Mike B and a special tag team DJ set from label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Woah!
A-Trak’s take on dance maniac (and headband enthusiast) Martin Solveig’s “The Night Out” has quickly become a festival favorite of some of the world’s biggest deejays. And now it can be yours on Solveig’s new The Night Out EP, pick it up from iTunes today.
The latest edition of Converse’s “Three Artists, One Song” project features our own A-Trak collaborating with Mark Foster of Foster The People and Kimbra (you know her) for a brand new song called “Warrior.” Download the track here, and check out the music video (directed by Daniels) to see Trizzy and friends knock heads with some luchadores.
