Should be a fun show! I’ve seen A-Trak countless times and plan to see him even more in the future. His sets are always so fun and different from each other. Here are the best videos I’ve gotten of him:

A-Trak @ Voyeur (Photo: Mackenzie Bradley)

 

Woke up early Sunday morning to get ready for an adventure I didn’t know I was going to take. I found out about this show when Laidback Luke came to play back to back sets in May. Once at Voyeur and then straight to 4th&B to close out the night. L.E.D. events have a thing for two-a-days, and Fool’s Golds’ A-Trak and Treasure Fingers flew together for this one. I had one goal on Sunday and that was get to San Diego to see two hour sets from the best house DJs I know. My friends were dropping like flies, but Chronic Mncher wised up to the occasion and we made the drive. A-Trak and Treasure fingers were playing at Wave House and then rushing to Voyeur to do San Diego right.

Treasure Fingers was set to go on promptly from 5-7 and A-Trak was to follow from 7-9. Wave House has to be the coolest venue I’ve ever been to. Literally right on Mission Beach, packed with the most beautiful people from wall to wall. Right when you walk in you come up on their massive artificial wave. $40 an hour to ride or free to watch, so I just chilled and jammed to the bumping house until TF came on. We were graced with a straight two hour lounge set filled with the most consistent funk you can get. I will never get tired of it! He filled his set with his remixes of Innerpartysystem’s “It’s Not Getting Any Better” and Classixx “I’ll Get You.” Hey come and tell me do you like bass do ya do ya like bass. And he didn’t let up on his originals from the Lift Me EP. Fully funk-tional set that made the whole trip worth it in that very two hours.

TF set the tone but it was party time when A-Trak manned the decks, and everyone knew it. He never ceases to amaze and you can tell how much fun he’s having every time he spins a fresh set. You can’t fake that stuff. A-Trak played through what seemed to be a perfect Sunday sunset in San Diego and then disappeared to a roaring applause from the satisfied crowd. I had to make moves to catch the boys at Voyeur, so I jumped in the freezing beach showers, club attired myself, and snagged a ride downtown. I was so happy to see that both A-Trak and TF played different and equally amazing sets at both events. It proved that much more to me just how legit they are. A-Trak pumped out banger after banger. “Ray Ban Vision,” throwback tracks like his remix of “Oh!” and of course the Duck Sauce favs “aNYway,” “Barbra Streissand,” and “Big Bad Wolf,” which actually turns out to be much better as a live track than through headphones. Ahwoooooooowoowoowoo. Seeing A-Trak DJ from upstairs where I could see every knob turn, switch flip, record scratch, and beat match put him on a whole new level. He truly is the OGDJ, and I have yet to see his skills topped.

All in all, absolutely awesome day. I love going down to San Diego, because the scene seems to be so much more pure there. EVERYONE was dancing to the point of overwhelming heat and sweatiness, but no one seemed to care. Chants, dance circles, dirty dancing, pounding house music all added to make those two events some of the most fun parties I’ve been to. I’ve seen them both countless times, and I don’t plan on letting up anytime soon. I only wish I had my FlipCam with me to document, but you’re just going to have to see them for yourself next time they come around. I’ll definitely be there when they do, so let’s get down!

I nearly collapsed from excitement when I caught first word that the god of freestyle turntables released another remix. If you have heard any of his previous releases, you know the magnitude of an event such as this. A-Trak‘s resume speaks for itself:

-Won the DMCs World DJ Championship in 1997 at the age of 15 (youngest ever)
-Kanye West’s former DJ
-Half of DJ disco duo: Duck Sauce

He continues to play at events throwing down songs across all music genres. His music tastes rivals some of the greatest out there, which shows in the songs he chooses to re-edit. Some compared his most recent remix to “Heads Will Roll,” and although it’s classic A-Trak, I’m afraid it’s going to take a lot more to top.

Treasure Fingers (aka Ashley Jones) has been bringing the disco heat with his banger remixes for quite sometime now. Treasure Fingers is a fresh addition to A-Trak‘s Fool’s Gold Records along the likes of Chromeo, Crookers, Kid Cudi, LA Riots, Laidback Luke and way more. A-Trak wouldn’t put just anyone on his label, a very talented bunch. He was originally a part of drum and bass band Evol Intent before he decided to take his talents elsewhere. You can hear bits and pieces of his drum and bass backgrounds in this new EP which features three tracks:

1. Lift Me (Original Mix) Delightful Choice!
2. It’s Love (Original Mix)
3. It’s Love Instrumental

The EP may be brief, but it doesn’t fail to bring the uplifting disco/house sound we’re used to getting from him. His remixes have made several YOLO lists, and I’ll continue to add as they come. Be sure to catch him live if you can. His performance could use some work, but his song selection is unreal. Best end to Audiotistic that I could have asked for. Here’s a video I snagged:

Artist Spotlights

A-Trak

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again: A-Trak is the most talented DJ in the world. He’s the only one that could fill DJ AM‘s (RIP) shoes with Travis Barker, and the only person that can really show the world how delightful electronic/disco can really be (via Duck Sauce). A-Trak is an artist in every meaning of the word. Not only does he bring out the freshest, get-off-your-ass-and-dance, hard hitting tracks, he weaves them together with undeniable, award winning DJ skills by mashing the turn tables live. His impeccable song selection and groovy style are sure to impress. Adjectives and explanatory phrases aside, if you like to move it move it…DO NOT MISS THIS. Here’s a video I got of him at Audiotistic this year:

AC Slater

The more I listen to this guy, the more excited I get to see him. He’s making his way onto my Delightful Choice list for the night, because I feel like he would be nothing less than amazing live…as far as song selection and presentation go. He’s got a lot of his own tracks that are actually really good. His originals and remixes dive deep into the depths of the type of dubstep I love, the electronic I love, and a hybrid of the two. He uses a lot of the dubstep wobbles but adds an extra bass between the beats to make it more electro and danceable for some songs. He’s not as accessible as other artists on the bill for enlightened electronic lovers (EELs), but I definitely would recommend him to anyone who is down with dubstep and hard electro. He’s going to be one of the underdog stars of the night. You can quote me.

Boys Noize

He’s back to Haunted Mansion yet again. Boys Noize is up in the ranks with sebastiAn for being there at my electronic enlightenment stage. I still remember the first time I heard “Lava Lava.” My life was forever changed. I never heard anything like it. He definitely has a very unique sound, and it comes out during his sets. The first time I was fortunate enough to see him was as I was walking away from Justice‘s set, through DJ AM in the warehouse, to the other outside stage for Boys Noize. All of this was at The Shrine, more on that later. HHM 2008 flashback…Anyhow, he was an absolute treat. He messes around with the records and gets really into it. Very fun to watch. Very creative. If you can manage…DO NOT MISS THIS.

Calvin Harris C+A+D Concert Choice!

I had been thinking about how badly I wanted to see this guy the night before I saw the bill at HARD Summer. Needless to say, my prayers were answered, and I don’t think I could be more excited. With albums titled “I Created Disco” and “Ready For the Weekend,” you can pretty much bet that his set is going to be a straight dance party throughout the whole performance. He’s definitely proved himself to be one of the better producers, as far as this disco/electro sub-genre goes, with hits like “Acceptable in the 80s,” “Colours,” “You Used To Hold Me,” the list goes on. I’ve had both of his albums and essential mix (that you can get here) on repeat the past few weeks, and I can’t seem to get enough. Just trying to be ready for the weekend, you feel me. And incase you were wondering: he gets all the girls, he gets all the girls…DO NOT MISS THIS.

There You Have It!

I really hope this makes your decision easier. As you can see, this is probably the most excited I’ve been for an event for awhile…I hope we share at least half of that excitement. The Shrine is my favorite place for these big events. It’s got an outdoor section and an indoor section. It doesn’t even get that hot inside, because it’s just so large. Everywhere is pretty accessible, as the place doesn’t get TOO packed and anywhere you stand will give you an acceptable view of the DJs. Check out Deadmau5‘s video from Haunted Mansion 2008 here. Should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Also, HARD has been known to go all out on the special guests. Last year, the special guests for night two were Deadmau5 and 2 Many DJs. You can bet that made for an absolutely insane night. Something tells me that Justice may be one of the specials. Partially because of the fact that they were there for the first two Haunted Mansions and a lot of the talent from their old label (Ed Banger Records) is going to be there. This also includes the owner of the label, Busy P, who just so happens to manage Justice and Daft Punk. I’m just predicting…the only thing that I am 100% about for the night is that it’s going to be a highlight to my concert-going career.
