A-Trak Says “The DJ Now Is More Present Than Ever”

Producer/DJ A-Trak talks about his early addiction to scratching, 15 years in DJ’ing and turntablism, DJ Hero 2, and Kanye West’s role in the reestablishment of DJ’s in live hip-hop shows.

The DJ now is more present than ever. I think the DJ has become a real personality and everybody knows the DJ a lot more than before.

I don’t think DJ Hero is really supposed to teach you how to DJ. It really doesn’t feel like DJ’ing at all. I think it’s really just a game and its supposed to be entertaining and that’s it.
