A-Trak is Throwing Some D’s on That Bitch

A-Trak – Throw Some D’s in Your Life

Dirty South Dance

(Obey; 2007)

Well, it looks like I found something that Canada has actually offered the world besides hockey and maple syrup.  A-Trak is one of the most talented DJ’s the world has to offer.  He was the first DJ to win all three major world competitions and he was the first DJ to win five World Championships.  He also won his first World Championship when he was only 15.  Wow!  He has also toured alongside Kanye West since 2004.  And he’s remixed the likes of Boys Noize, MSTRKRFT, Tiga, and Kanye West’s Stronger.  That’s quite a resume.

So, of all the absolutely killer tracks A-Trak has produced in his career, I’m going to go with Throw Some D’s in Your Life. A-Trak reworks a sped-up vocal of Rich Boy’s Throw Some D’s and perhaps one of the greatest Daft Punk remixes, Para One’s remix of The Prime Time of Your Life into one of hell of a party.  This is truly a work of genius.  This is one of the stand-out tracks off of his Dirty South Dance mixtape, which includes other samples from the likes of Lil’ Jon, LCD Soundsystem, Kid Sister, MIA, and Lil’ Wayne.  Definitely worth checking out in its entirety…if you can find it that is.  This mixtape was limited to only 5000 copies.  However, there are plans to release Dirty South Dance 2 sometime later in the year.  Get excited!
