DJ A-Trak Dazzles Crowd at West L.A. Music's
"Vinyl Kombat Clinic and Preview Party"


LOS ANGELES, CA — On Wednesday, June 30 from 5pm-8pm, West LA Music presented a sneak peak at the hottest new competition to hit the national DJ battle circuit, "Vinyl Kombat." Vinyl Kombat operates under a "keep it clean" policy for contestants and features performances by some of the best world-class talent on the DJ scene today. The night before Vinyl Kombat began its national tour at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles on July 1st - they kicked it off by throwing a hugely successful preview and clinic party at West L.A. Music!

Highlighting the party was a very special clinic and performance by five-time World DJ title-holder, A-Trak. A-Trak thrilled the crowd with an assortment of skills including beat juggling, crab scratching, flare scratching and needle dropping.

The party was free to attend and featured the latest DJ products from show sponsors, Rane, Serato and Shure.

About DJ A-Trak

The first battle he entered was the 1997 DMC. Before he knew it, he was crowned Canadian champion. By the time he went to Italy to compete in the world finals, he had already been invited by San Francisco's DJ Q-Bert to join the celebrated Invisibl Skratch Piklz, certainly the most prestigious collective in the world at that time. A-Trak lived up to the hype, being crowned World Champion at the tender age of 15 and thus becoming the youngest champion ever, by far. In 2000, he returned to DMC, joining forces with Craze to win the World Team Championship. Not satisfied with his already unparalleled resume, A-Trak decided to go one step further and was once again crowned ITF World Champion that year. Already a legend, he decided to retire from battling at the age of 18, with five world titles under his belt.
