Last December A-Trak unleashed his highly anticipated Tuna Melt EP to outstanding reviews and much-deserved praise. The Fool’s Gold imprint featured a four-song extended play capturing the essence of A-Trak’s refreshingly unique hip-hop infused electro style. The title track, a collaboration with Tommy Trash, is joined by “Landline” featuring trap masters GTA, “Jumbo” featuring bass-heavy Galantis and “Disco Nap” featuring 80s-influenced Oliver.
Today, the remix package is finally available for purchase and includes a seven piece deluxe assisted by Grandtheft, Les Rhythmes Digitales, Q-Bert, Funkin Matt, Jack Beats and The Partysquad, each providing a distinguished flare. Also included is a revamped version of “Landline,” which you might recognize from Adidas Originals’ campaign showcasing urban lifestyle at its finest. The remix package brings the EP to new heights, once again crowning Fool’s Gold as the King of electro groove.
Grandtheft caught our attention with his remix Calvin Harris‘ infamous “Sweet Nothing” alongside Diplo last year. The 2012 hit, featuring the soulful vocals of Florence Welch, received reworks from the likes of Tiesto and Qulinez, but Diplo and Grandtheft’s trap rendition stole the spotlight. Now the Canadian producer is back at it, giving listeners another remix driven by the pitch-down drum kicks of trap.
His latest remix is a rework of A-Trak and Tommy Trash‘s “Tuna Melt,” and was released after the Fool’s Gold head honcho — A-Trak — reached 300k twitter followers Friday. Grandtheft’s remix of the already grinding electro track tones down the tempo, before slapping listeners in face with hip-hop infused bass drops. A complete turn around from the original, the “Tuna Melt” remix is another huge output from the rising producer.

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.
