A-Trak, one of our favorite Instagramming musicians, took to the internet airwaves today to drop the January edition of his monthly Fool’s Gold Radio mix. Splendidly blended like your morning cup of coffee, A-Trak cuts in funky electro, nu-disco and tribal bass from across the indie EDM spectrum. The only Fool’s Gold record included in the mix is the A-Trak-produced opener “Stingray,” a progressive breakbeat track with an overwhelming horn synth. Remixes, edits and originals from producers like Brodinski, DJ Naughty and La Fuente, and record labels including Ed Banger, Kicks and Snares and Guesthouse fill the rest of the tracklist. A-Trak adds to the ambiance of the mix with some voice overs -- incomplete, fragmented thoughts on DJ names and electronic dance clichés ("I love it when the song talks back to me"), and non sequiturs that have little do with the music. For example: “If you we’re being attacked what’s the one thing you would run into your house and save? Would it be your magnets?” We haven't really thought about it, but no, probably not.
