Canadian-born Renaissance man A-Trak (a.k.a. Alain Macklovitch) is a DJ, a producer and the owner of Fool’s Gold, the Brooklyn-based label that has been home to artists including Kid Cudi, Flosstradamus, and Danny Brown.
Since winning the 1997 DMC World DJ Championship at 15, he’s collaborated with everyone from Kanye to Chromeo, and is on tour through August both solo and to promote his most recent album, Quack, with his house-group superduo Duck Sauce partner Armand Van Helden.
Of all our playlists created for this issue (see Phantogram’s and CHVRCHES, also posted today), A-Trak’s was the hardest to lock down on Spotify — not entirely surprising, considering his crate-digging, white-label-hoarding M.O.
So we’ve provided a complete tracklisting as well after the jump, for your own DIY-hunting pleasure. Stream and read on below:[spotify id="spotify%3Auser%3Aew.com%3Aplaylist%3A2Y8s6h0dOyAQHi1cNz48b8" /]
