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. Well 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 doesnt have a proper, true-blue club for dude to rock, hes coming anyway as part of his 10,000 LB Hamburger tour. With Rye Rye, Treasure Fingers, the Dowlz & OK Dave.
