Got to give it to A-Trak to keep things chugging along with his latest an ode to bloghaus, the genre that really kick started the fascination of dance music for a lot of people including us here at Stoney HQ.
The Canadian producer laid it out for his Facebook fans touching on low bit-rates, printed hoodies and of course myspace top 8’s;
I’ve been wanting to record a BLOGHAUS mix for a while now… Some of my favorite songs from the era when electronic music was indie, dirty, distorted and sweaty. A time of low bit-rate mp3s, all-over-print hoodies and MySpace top 8’s. We’re talking about 2007-2009, roughly. That scene laid the foundation for the explosion of dance music that followed. Those were also the formative years of Fool’s Gold Records Anyway, I got home from the studio the other night and recorded this thing. Had so much fun doing it.
His mix really does hit all the right spots with classic cuts from Fake Blood, Boys Noize, Crookers and Simian Mobile Disco as well as remixes from Herve, Erol Alkan, Soulwax and plenty more.
It follows the recent lick “As Crazy As It Is” with ZHU and reggae artist Keznamdi that sees A-Trak add his characteristic scratch and flavour and a far cry from his bloghaus mix!
