A-Trak collaborates with Cam’ron, drops new Duck Sauce EP
The Fool’s Gold boss lines up a few projects.
While A-Trak might be associated with the electro-house of festivals and big rooms these days, one shouldn’t forget his history of turntablist championships and his time as Kanye West’s tour DJ.
It’s that part of his biography that comes to mind with his new project: a collaboration with Harlem legend Cam’ron. There’s only a brief preview so far, but it certainly sounds like the Dipset of old. “Wait til they see the production team we got on this killa project,” A-Trak tweets; Just Blaze adds that “Rumor has it I snuck some hi hats in.”
Check out the preview below. In addition, Duck Sauce — A-Trak’s collaboration with Armand Van Helden — has released a free EP entitled Duck Droppings, full of the disco-house throwbacks one would expect from the makers of ‘Barbra Streisand’.

Sampha uploads six early productions for cancer charity
London singer/songwriter Sampha has uploaded a collection of early releases to Bandcamp, with purchases going towards the Youth Cancer Trust.
Entitled ‘Sundanza’ the six-track offering was originally released in 2010 on “very limited hand sprayed CD-Rs.”
In his description of the tracks, he adds: “While away on some adventures away from home my brother accidentally deleted the master files from my computer so they exist only as low quality unmastered mp3s.”
All income will go directly to the Youth Cancer Trust and the six tracks can be purchased for £7 or more.
Listen to or download ‘Sundanza’ below.
