DJ A-Track - Youngest World Champ - Shuts it down! (VIDEO)

DJ A-trak is the youngest person to ever win the DMC World Title at the young age of 15 in 1997. He was also one-half of the Allies DJ Team consisting of himself and DJ Craze; together they won the 2000 DMC World Team Championship. With all these accolades and many more, I thought I would share a quick video that shows the skills of A-trak and what it takes to be one of the best in the game! <i>(Video Inside after the Jump!)</i>.

Nowadays, A-trak can be found touring all over the world with Kanye West as his personal DJ and he has also signed on to tour with Travis Barker to perform at shows the way Travis used to play with DJ AM. He has been sponsored by Serato, Rane, LRG, Zoo York, and Circa... On top of all this, he still found the time to create albums and start record labels. It's pretty safe to say that as far as DJ-ing is concerned...A-trak has done it all!

New TRAKTOR CONTROL VINYL from QBert & DJ Craze

Qbert and DJ Craze are two of my personal favorite DJ's in the whole wide world. They have been killing the scratch/turntablist game for years and years and they both hold three DMC World titles each. Native Instruments has teamed up with Qbert and DJ Craze to bring an excellent Limited Edition Traktor Control Vinyl Set with exclusive sounds on side A (one with samples from Qbert and one with beats by Craze) and Traktor Scratch timecode on side B.
