A-Trak, a.k.a. Alain Macklovitch, is the quintessential cultural connector. His 20-year career has seen him take turns as an internationally renowned turntablist, Grammy-nominated producer, innovative remixer, globetrotting DJ and more. As a founder of New York’s celebrated Fool’s Gold Records, half of the legendary house duo Duck Sauce and, more recently, The Brothers Macklovitch alongside his brother Dave 1 of Chromeo, A-Trak is one of the most prolific names in music today.
ABOUT MICK JENKINS
Over the past decade, Mick Jenkins has made a name for himself through the unflinching and clear-eyed poeticism of his music. His voice is resonant, commanding a sense of authority, or at least a confidence, that allows him to mine his experiences and those of others in quest of higher truths. Yet, some topics are always going to be hard to talk about, and his latest album Elephant in the Room is about facing those things head on.
ABOUT COCO + BREEZY
Coco & Breezy are Producers & DJs and the fiercely stylish twins behind their multifaceted brand. Their musical journey was influenced by their family and grew into a deep passion for dance and dance music culture as teenagers which landed them as tour dancers for the infamous Prince. Fast forward, post moving to New York to launch their eyewear company, C&B submerged themselves into changing the face of dance music, and what it means to be a technically accomplished Afro-Latina women DJ’sand producer. Playing homage to the classic, but pushing boundaries for the new.
