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!

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
