A-Trak

Saturday, July 18

“When I was 13, I took my bar mitzvah money and bought myself some turntables and a mixer. I practiced for about 18 hours a day. Then I came out of my basement, packed my lunch and won a bunch of world championships. Joy!” writes Montreal jock A-Track on his MySpace bio. We’ll forgive dude his “my first Fischer Price DJ set” origins, which is as boringly similar to all others, because his music is effin bangin’. No laptop jock he, the turntablist can crate-dig and spin with the best of ‘em, and his hip-hop flavored electronic music (usually with rap vocals laid over techno beats) have won him such famous fans as Kanye West (whom A-Track toured with) to club junkie DJ AM. Despite that Seattle doesn’t have a proper, true-blue club for dude to rock, he’s coming anyway as part of his “10,000 LB Hamburger” tour. With Rye Rye, Treasure Fingers, the Dowlz & OK Dave.
