Is DJ A-Trak The Hardest Working Man In Show Business?

MONTREAL (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Montreal-based DJ A-Trak – who’s currently touring with Kanye West in Europe – hasn’t gone to bed before 5 a.m. in weeks.

A-Trak explains, “People think touring with Kanye West is all A-List celebrity parties every day and orgies by night...You don’t just sit back and watch the Hennessy flow.”

He says his schedule is packed with bus travel, sound checks, meetings, in-store events, shows and after-parties that he’s asked to DJ.

He’s quick to point out that he’s not complaining, but admits, “It’s not like a free ride...We work hard every day.”

A-Trak says any spare time he has is spent working on his solo album, adding, “Sometimes I set up turntables in my hotel room so I can write music.”

Maybe one of these days, he says, “I’ll try not to go to sleep at 5 a.m. for once.”

A-Trak’s new DVD, Sunglasses Is A Must – including footage of his turntable start at 13 and a DJing World Championship win two years later – is out March 21.
