A-Trak is one of the greats and with his newest installment of the Goldie Awards he continues to add to his already stacked resume. He started his career by winning the DMC world championship at the tender age of 15, which qualified him as the youngest to do so. He then went on to win four more in his respected field. He is one of the very few DJ’s known to the techno world and has become close with rappers such as Kanye West.
The Goldie Awards is reflection of the DMC world championships and will help bring new faces onto the scene. The battle will give producers and DJ’s a chance to go head and head mixing and scratching similar to what Swizz Beats and Just Blaze have been working up on social media. The battle will be hosted by Young Harlem MC, Dave East and will feature top DJ’s and producers like Mannie Fresh, Diplo, Just Blaze, Destructo, Craze and many more.
“Nowadays DJs and producers are bigger than ever. But there’s no championship that celebrates how important and relevant they’ve become. That’s why I created Goldie Awards: a DJ and beat battle adapted to what these art forms represent today.” – A-Trak
