Alesso – ‘Cool’ (A-Trak Remix)
Throughout the years of his illustrious career, A-Trak has established himself as a master of the remix. The scratch master has brought his unmistakable electro and hip-hop influenced sounds to tracks like the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s “Heads Will Roll” (which has not only become an A-Trak classic, but an anthem of the dance music scene) and Martin Solveig’s “The Night Out,” as he’s shown time and time again that he’s just as skilled in the studio as he is on the decks.
Now, he’s set his sights on the single from Alesso, “Cool,” featuring vocalist Roy English. The Fool’s Gold Records leader takes the electro route on this one, remaining true to the original track’s uplifting pop melody before dropping in a grinding, dance-y electro progression that is jam-packed with energy.
This is a track you can expect A-Trak to include in his live arsenal on his ‘Gold Gone Wild’ Tour — a six-date club tour of venues that were hand-selected by A-Trak himself with support from AraabMuzik. In a world where live DJing is often called into question regarding its authenticity, scratchmaster A-Trak and MPC wizard AraabMuzik showcase their brilliant instrumentation during their live performances for all to see. Needless to say, this tour is one that should not be missed. Also joining them on the tour is the rapidly rising Ape Drums, rounding out a very impressive lineup for the tour. Advance tickets for the ‘Gold Gone Wild’ Tour are on sale now on the tour’s official website.
