Alain Macklovitch, a.k.a. A-Trak, has traveled all over the world showcasing his DJ talents, according to a press release.

At the age of 15, A-Track was the youngest DJ to ever win a DJ-battling world championship. He was featured in hip-hop magazines and on MTV in the mid-2000s, and had a fanbase that stretched for miles.

A-Track is known for some of his southern rap and dance music on his remix album Dirty South Dance. He has also produced tracks for rapper Kid Sister and Kid Cudi. In 2007, he founded his very own record label, Fool’s Gold.

2009 proved to be the best year yet for A-Trak, who teamed up with American producer to form the disco house duo Duck Sauce.

Together, the two were unstoppable, and gained worldwide recognition for their single “Barbra Streisand.” A-Trak also continued to do remixes, reworking tracks by artists like MSTRKRFT and was even featured on albums by Drake and Kid Cudi. He was even featured on the cover of Billboard Magazine alongside Diplo and Skrillex in 2012. Last year, he released the album “Festivus” with Wale, the release stated.
