Montreal’s A-Trak (Duck Sauce) kicks off Fried & Furious tour [News]

Montreal, QC – Producer/DJ and owner of Fool’s Gold Records, A-Trak, stays busy this summer with a slew of new globe-trotting dates after dropping a hot new summer single, “It’s You” with his group, Duck Sauce. Duck Sauce, which consists of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden, is best known for their award-winning single “Barbra Streisand” which was originally released in 2011. The Fried & Furious tour kicks off today in Eindhoven, Netherlands (Extrema Outdoor) and will conclude in New York City (FG Clubhouse @ Electric Zoo) on August 31.

While A-Trak, born Alain Macklovitch, has become well known in the electro house / disco house circuit, he’s equally respected in within the hip-hop community. He was the first DJ to win all three major DJ competition titles including DMC, Vestax and ITF (International Turntablist Federation). At the tender age of 15 in 1997, he won the DMC World DJ Championship, which made him the competition’s youngest and first Canadian winner. A-Trak was an honorary member of the DJ crew, Invisibl Skratch Piklz, and a member of The Allies alongside DJ Craze. Not to mention his work with hip-hop superstar, Kanye West:

“In 2004 Kanye West recruited him as his personal tour DJ, and he has worked closely with him ever since, including performances alongside the US rapper at MTV specials, the Grammy Awards, multiple MTV Video Music Awards, and worldwide stadium shows. A-Trak also recorded scratches on Kanye West’s second and third studio albums Late Registration in 2005 and Graduation in 2007, and was an influence on the overall sound of the latter.”

Unfortunately there are no Canadian dates currently listed on the Fried & Furious tour but you might find a few American dates close by, depending on where you live. Tickets can be purchased at Click the jump for a full listing.
