One of dance music's biggest trend setters and head of the influential Fool's Gold Records, mixmaster A-Trak has always been on top of the game. However, recently the CEO has been on an entirely new level, putting out a full length mixtape last month with DC rapper Wale featuring an all star cast including A$AP Ferg, Chance The Rapper, and Pusha T that was released for free to celebrate the holiday 'Festivus'. One of his biggest singles yet is his disco infused electro anthem "Push" drawing some classic inspiration delivered in a very modern way.
The song has been gaining huge momentum, and A-Trak has just brought it to life with an outrageous new music video. Featuring cameos from A-Trak himself, Atlanta producer TM88 of 808 Mafia, a series of Nude models, and even a tiger, it is impossible to be bored through the length of the video.
A-Trak even had a few words on why he chose this direction for the music video. "My approach to dance music has always been a bit left, so the last thing I wanted was one of those sparkler bottle 'lets make this night live forever!' videos". "Instead, I wanted to make something with the opulence of a rap video, but shot like a renaissance painting. It's kind of like Eyes Wide Shut meets Burning Man."

Sydney based producer Wax Motif has been working on some exciting new productions and kicks off 2015 with one of his most impressive tracks to date. "Since I Left You" is a feel good dance track blending electro and disco styles for an infectious combination tied together by some smooth vocals from R&B singer Brandy. The song was inspired by Wax after he had just split with his ex and moved to America from Sydney,
"I was just crashing out on people couches or guestrooms, whoever would have me. It was a Friday night and I really didn't feel like going out and my friend who I was crashing with had a studio so I sparked one up and this is where "Since I Left You" was born.
