Kid sister dating a trak dating in guyana
The beats of a live DJ usually feel, sound and absorb better into your eyes and ears when it’s dark and the club’s capacity is kept to a tightly packed 200 people who have come to dance and be swept away in a communal expression created by a building buzz and hype that’s all brought to a peak by the melodic alchemy of the DJ.
Having seen both female rapper Kid Sister and hip-hop duo Cool Kids at the Pitchfork Music festival and Lollapalooza earlier this summer I wasn’t completely blown away by what I saw.
In 1997, at 15, he won DMC’s World DJ Championship and after Kayne West discovered him in a French nightclub, he later found himself anchoring Kayne West’s 2004 Late Registration tour.
A-Trak is part businessman, DJ and producer and at any given moment during the show any one of those roles can take control.
Following a second single, "Control," and an appearance on the MTV reality show My Block, Kid Sister released her debut album, Ultraviolet, in late 2009.
There’s been much local Chicago hype surrounding two acts on this night’s bill.
The song is better known for its remix, which features a verse by Kanye West.
Encouraged by the burgeoning career of her younger brother Josh Young, also known as J2K of the Chicago DJ duo Flosstradamus, Young adopted the name and persona of Kid Sister in early 2006; with J2K as her DJ and producer, Kid Sister debuted with the giddy single "Pro Nails," which became popular enough as a digital download that Kanye West included a remix with his own guest verse on his summer 2007 mixtape Can't Tell Me Nothing.
That connection happened when Young began dating West's DJ, A-Trak (Alain Macklovitch), who also signed Kid Sister to his label, Fools Gold Records.
He scurried back and forth from the stage to the back of the house as he sat behind the DJ table during the Cool Kids set prepping himself to provide the beats for girlfriend and Fools Gold artist Kid Sister.
Watching the business/label-owner side of DJ A-Trak meander around the venue in his tilted zebra-striped baseball cap was interesting to watch but I came to see him work the decks and the crowd and experience what he’s like in a live setting.The Kanye remix was also featured on Fabric Live 38.
