A-Trak Takes his Fool's Gold Roster on Tour
- Words: Fred Miketa
Twenty-three-year-old DJ A-Trak has evolved from prepubescent turntablist to a respected artist (who has toured with everyone from Diplo to Kanye West) and head of the Fool’s Gold imprint with Nick Catchdubs. Fans will get to see what A-Trak is up to with the label when he and the other artists on the roster tour North America in just a few weeks.
Artists on the tour include A-Trak’s lady friend Kid Sister, Ed Banger’s hip-house resident DJ Mehdi, the Daft Punk-groomed Kavinsky, and A-Trak and Catchdubs themselves. In addition, Chicago retro-hoppers (and Fool’s Gold signees) Cool Kids will join the group for a few dates. Following the North American jaunt, Mehdi and A-Trak bring their tag-team set to Europe for "The DJ Mehdi & A-Trak Spectacular Review." [sic]
The recently formed label has already released Kid Sister’s hit “Control” and A-Trak’s Dirty South Dance Remixes, and has forthcoming releases from Kavinsky, Cool Kids, and newcomer Kid Cudi. Plus, there are some beats in the works from Australia’s Bag Raiders and Canada’s Jokers of the Scene. Dudes with New Era hats and throwback Nikes are stoked.
