A-Trak on Getting “Barbra Streisand” on Glee, and How to Perform in a Leather Jacket

Visiting San Francisco's Mezzanine this Monday is one of the world's most versatile DJs, Montreal's Alain Macklovitch, better known as A-Trak. He's recognized for running the Fool's Gold label, working as Kanye West's touring DJ, and dominating the DMC World Championship 11 years ago when he was just 15. A-Trak's most recent project, Duck Sauce, with house mastermind Armand Van Helden, even has television's Glee singing its praises, and Howard Stern issuing its critiques. Midway through his tour with Gaslamp Killer and Kid Sister, A-Trak spoke with All Shook Down about his opening DJ, performing in his leather jacket, and why some people just seem to hate so hard.
