Say Whoa!

Alain Macklovitch was just 13 when he scraped together his bar mitzvah money to buy a pair of secondhand Technics 1200s and a mixer. Just two years later he won the world finals of the definitive turntable battle, an annual tournament put on by DMC. He was the youngest title holder ever and went on to win it two more times (in 1999 and 2000), as well as consolidate DJ belts by winning other global scratch-fests staged by Vestax and ITF. Unlike so many turntablists, though, A-Trak has gone on to much greater things—perhaps because he never lost sight of the prize while cutting shit up: Keep the people dancing. These days he’s Kanye’s tour DJ, a much sought after provider of scratches for studio productions and a producer of ace electro tracks of his own.

Alain?! haha..hilarious

Alain- oops i mean A-Trak is totally boss.
