Premiere: A-Trak, “Trizzy Turnt Up” MP3


The verses on Roscoe Dash and Soulja Boy’s “All the Way Turnt Up” always sound too cheeky for its abyss-level production depth. The track is an ecstatic depiction of under-25s acting like maniacs, buying Louis Vuitton toothbrushes just to unload their GOBS OF MONEY, and deserves a beat that reflects its carefree ridiculosity. A-Trak gets it: in his rework of “Turnt Up,” from the forthcoming Dirty South Dance 2, he lightens the mood with bloopy techno, gilded synths and what sounds like Gregorian robots chanting (from Claude von Stroke’s “Vocal Chords”), mutating the original’s implied nihilism into a happy fantasia of dancing (and shopping). Soulja Boy started his career with a dance, anyway. If you’re nice, perhaps A-Trak talk to you about this track at FADER Bowl next Tuesday, where the Brothers Macklovitch will be thoroughly Macklovitching out.

    It’s basically a mash-up with Claude VonStroke’s ‘Vocal Chords.’

    Funny how Atrak puts a acapella over something and gets press. On the other hand, were busting ass in the studio, and getting what??.. Thats WACK.

    Maybe that should tell you something… It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out if you’re not getting press, and nobody is talking about you then you’re either doing it wrong, or don’t have what it takes.

    The music business is a bitch, and isn’t cut out for everyone.

    Hey #3, maybe cause you’re an ASSHOLE

  7. Hey Buddy says:

    Maybe after you win the DMC & ITF world championships, DJ for Kanye West, start a successful record label, and produce great music, you will begin to get some press for your mashups, too.

    HEY BUDDY..nailed it.. A-Trak is the man..

  9. EL NOU MON says:

    #3 why are you NOW surprised that the Fader promotes music by their homies? I would do the same thing if I had some sort of famous-ass website.

    btw this may be a “mashup” but it is a fucking great mashup.

    A-Trak gets press because he’s talented and thinks of shit no one else does… Not to mention his highly decorated career.

    Garbage, the original is better

  12. dsfsdag says:

    definitely worse than the original. I’ve yet to hear a good song from any of these dmc champs, save camel bobsled race. scratching skillz do not seem to translate to production.

    i personally think it’s precious and haven’t stopped dancing since it started.

    I think it’s a good summer song that makes you wanna get up and do the D.A.N.C.E. If you’re an A-trak fan like me you should check out this interview I found on It’s raw and intimate… it reminds you how cool of a guy he really is. Here’s a link to the site so you can check it out:
