The legendary scratch DJ, A-Trak teams up with PandaFunk newcomer ZooFunktion for the first time on their new single ‘Place on Earth’. The intro and breakdown combines lively piano chords with melodic, female vocals and then transitions into an unexpected, unique electro house drop. There are technically three drops, which is rare to hear; it ends perfectly with a smooth and quick vocal transition into a drop that is similar to the other two. In ‘Place on Earth’ you can really hear A-Trak’s signature, electronic sounds mixed with ZooFunktion’s Melbourne bounce rhythm. This record has already been supported by some of the world’s most renowned DJs so when you’re out at the function, put your dancing shoes on because it’s likely you’ll hear this one!
A-Trak has been a household name in dance music and hip-hop for the last decade, starting out his career as Kanye West’s official tour DJ. He is known for his remarkable scratch-work on the turntables, a skill that is very rare in the dance world today. He has collaborated with the likes of Travis Barker (from Blink-182), Lupe Fiasco, Juicy J, Jim Jones, Danny Brown, and Dillon Francis, and has remixed Kanye West, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Robyn, Foster the People, and Justice to name a few. He runs hip-hop/electronic label Fool’s Gold and in July 2015 launched his own radio show ‘Day Off Radio’ on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio. His latest single ‘We All Fall Down’ successfully racked up nearly 7 million plays on Soundcloud and Spotify in just two months. It also received remixes from CID, Volt & State, and Jarreau Vandal. Needless to say A-Trak has achieved an undeniable amount of success in his career and we can only expect more from him in the future.
ZooFunktion’s career took off when he released his collaboration, ‘Hype’ with Deorro, which released on Dim Mak Records in April 2013. Since then he has become a member of the PandaFunk family with several releases on the label including his originals ‘Don’t Let Me In’ and ‘Punchis Punchis’. His debut EP, ‘Wild Life’, released on Dim Mak in 2013 and he recently collaborated on another single with Deorro, called ‘The Way You Move’. ZooFunktion did a massive tour across Europe this summer spanning 12 countries: Spain, England, Italy, France, and Belgium to name a few. This tour included performances at some of the world’s most prestigious festivals and clubs like Tomorrowland, Electric Love in Austria, Ministry of Sound, Pacha, and Amnesia. ‘Place on Earth’ will be his debut collaboration with A-Trak and also his first release on Spinnin’!
