Alan Macklovitch, better known as the master DJ A-Trak, has pretty much had things his own way since winning the DMC World DJ Championship in 1997 at the age of 15. That’s what you call making a career entrance.
Since then, the question isn’t what has the 32-year-old DJ done, it’s what hasn’t he done?
Win all three major DJ competition titles (DMC, ITF and Vestax)? Did that.
Developed his own notation system for scratching? Did that
Started his own record label (Fool’s Gold Records)? Did that too.
Become the personal tour DJ for an act like Kanye West? Uh-huh.
Become a street-wear icon by collaborating with Nike, New Era, Kidrobot, Zoo York and pretty much every other designer getting any notice? Yep.
Produced a ton of hit singles and remixes? That too.
You may be noticing a trend here. Still, A-Trak hasn’t done everything—close, but not yet, However, he will be spinning at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa at MIXX along with Carlos Melange on November 29. The appearance comes just days after the scheduled release of his newest single, Push on November 25.
Known for merging the sounds of rap and electronic music, A-Trak is one of the most sought-after remixers in electronic music, and his remixes for the likes of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Boys Noize have become mainstays for DJs the world over.
And now he plays MIXX, with a brand new single to boot.
So he can add another thing to his list of accomplishments. Throw the ultimate post-Thanksgiving party in Atlantic City—at Borgata.
