A-Trak recently hopped on a song with British producer Jamie Lidell to create the magical track "We All Fall Down." Now A-Trak has turned his sights towards Disclosure's massive hit with Lorde titled "Magnets." Disclosure themselves remixed the song not too long ago and now A-Trak has stepped up to offer his own take on the track.
Morphing the song into an electro-house banger with the addition of killer synth work and bombastic drums, A-Trak kicks "Magnets" into overdrive. Check out his remix below and make sure to watch the original song's music video if you haven't yet.

Update 9/24/2015: Less than 24 hours after teasing the collaboration with A-Trak and Keznamdi via a visual component, ZHU premieres "As Crazy As It Is" in full glory! You can hear A-Trak's live scratching on the production and the jazzy elements meshing perfectly with ZHU and Keznamdi vocals perfectly.
Just a couple weeks back the enigmatic ZHU went live with a mysterious website generationwhy.com which had a matrix inspired vibe which cryptically revealed an impressive list of artists we have assumed are a list of collaborators for a future project. These speculations were confirmed as of last week when we got the first track "Automatic," a collaboration with UK singer AlunaGeorge.
A wide-variety of names such as Bone Thugs N Harmony, Trombone Shorty, Skrillex, A-Trak and Gallant appeared on the site. A-Trak was one of the names that instantly made us more interested in what kind of collaboration they could have on the way.
Well it seems the predictions were true once again and we have our ears on the very first clip of this collaboration titled "As Crazy As It Is", which has been leaked exclusively to those who submitted their e-mail at generationwhy.com. Listen and watch the clip below, and if it follows last week's pattern we should expect the single's release on Friday. Enjoy!
Perennial dance music veteran A-Trak is back to follow up his massive hit "Push" with an original creation full of life and good vibes. With an endless amount of production capabilities at his disposal, the Montreal born producer/DJ flexes his electro prowess on "We All Fall Down"; A-Trak shoves oodles of melodic dance melodies and 80's/90's influenced house elements into the framework, which is further enhanced by the vocal additions from UK soul-singer Jamie Lidell. The end result will sweep you up onto your feet and swaying carefree to the contagious rhythm. You can stream the Radio rip below and grab a download on Friday, October 2nd via Fools Gold. Enjoy
