His latest release is a remix of The Magician‘s “Ready To Love,” which builds on the easygoing atmosphere of the original. As always, A-Trak brings added flair to his production, weaving in a variety of fun elements like ringing finger cymbals and a reoccurring playful whistle.

A-Trak and Chromeo’s Dave1 star in new MLS ‘Our Soccer’ campaign spot, ‘Like That’

A-Trak and Chromeo’s Dave1 star in new MLS ‘Our Soccer’ campaign spot, ‘Like That’Dave 1 And A Trak Cred Rolling Stone

Major League Soccer has steadily been on the rise in North America over the last decade. In the spirit of bringing incredibly passionate fan bases and a diverse array of cultures together, MLS has launched a new addition to the ongoing “Our Soccer” campaign, with a national spot featuring the Macklovitch brothers, Chromeo frontman Dave1 and Fool’s Gold co-founder, A-Trak.

In the new spot, titled “Like That,” highlight clips flash by as A-Trak’s voice over reads, “Our soccer is a vibe. Everybody’s welcome. We pull up. Laced up. Link up. And get down. When we make it happen. Move how we move. Like that. Our way. Our Soccer.” The new ad’s behind-the-scenes footage features the two Montreal-natives delving into what soccer means to them, and how growing up in Quebec exposed the two to things that hadn’t necessarily caught on in the United States. Says A-Trak,

“Montreal is already up on certain things before the rest of North Americans caught on. I saw it as a DJ with electronic music. It’s the way of the future. It’s the way forward. We’ve got to keep embracing that.”

MLS debuted the “Our Soccer” campaign back in 2018. Previous campaign spots have featured 2 Chainz, Miguel, and TOKiMONSTA. See the new campaign spot and behind-the-scenes visual below.

A-Trak flips Axwell’s ‘Nobody Else’

A-Trak flips Axwell’s ‘Nobody Else’A Trak DJs Gotta Dance More Music Video

A-Trak takes on Axwell‘s wall-to-wall house heater, “Nobody Else,” in a brand new remix that expounds on the groove that Axwell laid down in his original offering. The old-school soul of “Nobody Else” gets an instrumental update in A-Trak’s version. The Fool’s Gold founder pads the track’s distinguishing vocal contribution with trumpet work that brightens the song’s deep house stylings.

A-Trak certainly adds his accessibly quixotic flair, quickening the pace of “Nobody Else,” as piano chords fluidly filter in, to add a multi-instrumental layer to A-Trak’s vision. Axwell captured the spirited mystique of a European nightclub in “Nobody Else,” a tightly constructed track that placed an emphasis on a funky vocal centerpiece, and a particularly cinematic build towards the tune’s end. But now, A-Trak affects an aural image of equal caliber on his rhythmic rework, marking another strong showing from the more-than-capable producer.

A-Trak drops first new track of 2019, disco-house original, ‘Work It Out’A Trak Holy Ship Hip Hop

A-Trak comes through with his first new cut of 2019 on “Work It Out.” The track spans a total of six and a half minutes, and every moment of the release exudes feel-good energy that leaves the listener wanting for more. “Work It Out” blends sounds of different eras into one cohesive whole, utilizing soulful high pitched vocals and a synthesized disco backdrop complimented by strumming guitar chords. Staccato vocal chants give the release an energetic flair, making it the perfect tune for a dance party or a drive on a summer day.

“Work It Out” is out via A-Trak’s own Fool’s Gold Records, and the single follows a handful of VIP reworks on his recent A-Trak Bootleg Series, an informal collection of free releases he’s made for his DJ sets. This single is only one track of a larger collection of music that the producer is rumored to release later in 2019.
