About the artists
A-Trak, is a Canadian DJ, record producer, and record executive. He came to prominence in the late 2000s as an international club DJ and remix artist, known for incorporating highly technical turntable skills and scratching into his genre-spanning work. He is also president of the record label Fool’s Gold, which was founded in 2007, and is credited for developing the careers of artists such as Kid Cudi, Danny Brown, and Flosstradamus. A-Trak’s professional career has spanned over two decades and is built off his early success as a World Champion turntablist as well as Kanye West‘s original tour DJ. He was named one of the 50 Most Important People in EDM by Rolling Stone, and continues to make waves within the electronic music scene.
Guti isn‘t your run-of-the-mill electronic artist. Rather, it‘s the Argentinian‘s deep-rooted love of jazz and rock that form the foundations of his musical craft. Although today he‘s best known for his work alongside Desolat, Defected and his own Rompecorazones imprint, there was a time when he was revered as the keyboard player in Jóvenes Pordioseros, a Buenos Aires-born band that enjoyed huge commercial success both home and abroad. Many in his position would have been content to live out the life of a rock star, but Guti harboured a bur- ning desire to explore new paths. Around 2007, he started experimenting with house and techno, beginning a journey that would transform him into an established force on the global dance scene.
