Sonic and visual outputs alike, A-Trak rarely disappoints with his creative endeavors. His “Big Bad Wolf” video still holds the crown as one of our favorite music videos ever and is, at the very least, unforgettable. While “Jumbo” doesn’t come close to topping “Big Bad Wolf,” it’s still compelling and capable of holding any viewer’s attention — a rarity in the world of music videos today. With all the A-Trak clones present in the film, we can’t help but reminisce on the TRL-era classic “The Real Slim Shady.” Press play to enter a world where there are more than enough A-Traks to go around.Posted by
A-Trak‘s highly anticipated Tuna Melt EP finally graces our ears today, December 4. Out on his co-owned imprint Fool’s Gold, the four-song Extended Play gives listeners precisely crafted tracks dripping in A-Trak‘s hip-hop infused electro flavor.
Tuna Melt starts off with the title track — a collaboration with Tommy Trash – the synth-driven tune unloads a vibrating bassline midway through before being met with an echoing vocal. An obvious club banger, “Tuna Melt” launches the short-lived EP with pushing electro vibes. “Landline” comes up next featuring the production talent of GTA. The track begins with more melodic tones before GTA‘s trap tendencies take shape. “Jumbo” featuring Galantis adds surging bass riffs and muted kick drums to form an electro beat with hard-rock edges. Finally, “Disco Nap” finishes out Tuna Melt and moves into 80s vibes with escalating piano chords and diving synths, completing an EP impossible to categorize.
A-Trak effortlessly creates another acclaimed output to close 2012 with a boom, click below the break to listen.
