In today's DJ culture, A-Trak holds a truly unique place. His career began at age 15 when he won the 1997 DMC World Championships and then proceeded to take home every other DJ title known to man. In 2004, he was handpicked by Kanye West to be his tour DJ and had an audible influence on the Graduation album. He founded 2007's most buzzworthy label, Fool's Gold, with a mission to merge all aspects of club music. The manifesto for this fusion was outlined on his first official mixtape: Dirty South Dance. His signature remixes, original tracks and production for other artists have gone on to gain support from the world's top DJs. His forthcoming solo debut is preceded by an EP collaboration with Armand Van Helden under the moniker Duck Sauce.
