A-Trak is comfortable working at MetroSonic & living in Brooklyn, NYC. He just finished another round of writing & recording at the studio with musician Andrew Wyatt. Like many of our clients, this talented DJ/producer is also a neighbor…….
During this interview, A-Trak makes the point “what I stand for & what I do with my DJ’ing has come to symbolize a certain classic meets new“. That is surely a sentiment we share and no doubt an ideal reflected in most everything here at MetroSonic. I suspect that is part of why he likes coming back to our “classic meets new” studio. It is easy to see Andrew Wyatt also shares A-Trak’s appreciation of classic gear & production techniques. Much of their musical collaboration in the studio involves developing parts & melodies through playing & working off of each others’ ideas in what I would describe as a somewhat organic & traditional approach. Not necessarily an approach you would anticipate from a DJ and an electronic-pop group (Mike Snow) vocalist. Andrew’s choices for sound sources (Yamaha CP70, Fender Rhodes & Tele into my old Silvertone) also suggest a real appreciation for classic/vintage equipment.
