Veteran DJ and TSIS favorite A-Trak is back one more time before the close of 2017 with the latest installment of his #REALDJing video series, this time a quick flip of “Shelter” by Porter Robinson and Madeon. This marks the end of a busy year for the turntablist in which he linked up with top electronic and hip hop artists for impressive collabs like “Fern Gully” & “Dumbo Drop” with Baauer or “Believe” with Quavo and Lil Yachty.
Launching these huge collabs hasn’t stopped A-Trak from doing what he does best – live chopping beats in creative and impressive new ways. In this edit of “Shelter” he starts by scratching up the iconic opening melody before throwing it through a filter and manually building up to a drop with sliced up synth hits. As always A-Trak’s version of the track is fresh but familiar enough for listeners to appreciate how he decided to augment the original.
