Why?: Owner of Fool's Gold, producer, and major voice within the EDM world.

A-Trak is the man. Plain and simple. If you want to talk raw talent, the guy has been competing in and winning international DJ competitions since he was 15. I guess that sort of comes naturally if you're the younger brother of one of the members of Chromeo, but this founder of Fool's Gold Records (see: everyone from Crookers, Flosstradamus, Laidback Luke, and the Cool Kids) and member of Duck Sauce definitely didn't ride any coat tails to get where he is.
