Following a year of success as a producer and remixer, DJ A-Trak announced this week plans to take his success on the road this spring for his “Magic 8-Ball Tour”.
The popular DJ will headline the tour, alongside long-time collaborator Kid Sister and psychedelic beat wizard The Gaslamp Killer.
A-Trak had a momentous 2010, both solo and as half of Duck Sauce alongside Armand Van Helden. The duo’s infectious single, “Barbra Streisand”, dominated charts globally, securing the #1 dance-chart position all over Europe, as well as #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart in the US, platinum certification in Australia, and is currently approaching 50 million YouTube views.
Not bad huh?
As co-founder of Fool’s Gold Records, A-Trak has continued to redefine the DJ’s role in modern music, grooming a roster of diverse hip-hop, dance, and indie-pop talent for his label, while continuing to produce original material and remixes for artists such as Robyn and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Applying that same appreciation for varied genres to his DJ set, A-Trak continues to reinvent his performance, incorporating elements of turntablism, beat-juggling, and live improvisation to drop jaws and move feet around the globe.
The Magic 8-Ball Tour will serve as a showcase for more new music, surprises and unforgettable, hands-in-the-air moments from a true party master.
