Tune in and turn up

The latest to work on a mix for Nike Plus is A-Trak. His “Running Man” mix is part ofthe Original Run series.  The 45 minutes of original music on Running Man serve as A-Trak’s full-length production debut, and the set features guest vocals from Kid Cudi and others. Nike will also offer up a portion of the mix entitled “Say Whoa” as A-Trak’s very first official single.
A-Trak’s statemenet about Running Man:
I don’t really run. Yet when Nike asked me to do this track I was smitten. There was a musical challenge there, and I got excited. I’ve been producing mostly uptempo electro tracks as of late, but my background is hip-hop and I think you can hear it in my choice of sounds. I wanted this record to showcase my current style, but I also didn’t want to stray away from hip-hop completely. That’s why you find guest rap verses in the mix, plenty of chopped & screwed vocals, and a hefty dose of drums breaks that are surely more block party than Ibiza.” Via Pitchfork.
