A-Trak: Infinity +1
The DMC Championship has seen the world’s finest turntablists cut and mix their way to the top of the game, but only once was this honor taken by a 15-year-old kid. It was 12 years ago that DJ A-Trak’s muderous fingers led him to become the youngest punk-ass to win, jumpstarting his career, which now finds him on tour with Kanye West. The release of his new mix Infinity +1 follows a series of performaces across the U.S. and Europe, including half a dozen sets at the Winter Music Conference in Miami. This is a lot less chopped masterpiece and plenty more club mix, with tracks from Spinna, Mehdi, and current love interest Kid Sister, among others. Thankfully, this is not a slapshod mixtape, but rather an actual continuous mix. Remember those?
