If anything can be said about the year 2017, it surely is that it’s been a great year for music. Canadian producer A-Trak surprised us all year long by showing off his turntable mixing skills from his home studio in New York. The 35-year old electro-house and hip hop producer, who goes by his real name Alain Macklovitch in daily life, allowed fans a peek into his studio on several occasions this year, always showcasing his amazing mixing skills.
Just before the end of the year now, A-Trak has decided to have a go at Porter Robinson & Madeon‘s 2016 smash hit “Shelter”. The original, which was pure EDM bliss to fans all around the world last year, looks to have always appealed to A-Trak and was also used in the extremely popular EA Sports game FIFA 17. Now that A-Trak decided to flip it in his own style, he added many different flavors to it in order to come up with a genre-crossing result once again.
Watch below as A-Trak scratches and chops up the rhythm of “Shelter” dramatically, giving it a more upbeat outlook. Whether you like the result or not, it’s nice to see all smiles from A-Track while behind the decks. In case you missed A-trak’s previous flips, be sure to check out his Facebook page for mixes of Major Lazer’s “Light It Up” or Daft Punk & The Weeknd’s “Starboy”, among others.
