The only excuse for not having heard the latest dance anthem, "Barbra Streisand" by Duck Sauce, is, well, no excuse. The song has been spreading as quickly as a Charlie Sheen STD, in part due to its video, which is filled with music world royalty. The line-up of stars is just a taste of all the people A-Trak has worked with, among them Kanye, who first recruited him in 2004 as his personal tour DJ.
At age 15, A-Trak—or as his mama named him, Alain Macklovitch—was the youngest DJ to ever win DMCs World DJ Championship in 1997. Since then, he's collaborated with musicians such as Lupe, Kid Cudi, Common, and Kid Sister, co-founded the label Fool's Gold, and inspired labels such as Nike, New Era, and Kidrobot.
See what A-Trak can do on Saturday at Terminal 5, and be prepared for a sweet opening line-up: Clipse, Kid Sister, and The Gaslamp Killer.—Valeriya Safronova
