This past March in Austin, premium headphone company Master & Dynamic teamed up with BrooklynVegan for our free day shows at Mohawk. A-Trak was also in town for SXSW, and we helped Master & Dynamic conduct an interview with the superstar DJ, footage from which they turned into an episode of The Dynamic, their video series that explores the lives of creatives striving for mastery. It turned out quite well! Watch the short documentary above.

In it, you can hear the Canadian-born DJ, producer and owner of Fool’s Gold Records discuss how he got his start, scratching, preparation, improv, his love for Austin and the festival, working with Kanye West, entrepreneurship, his live show, the importance of the headphone listening experience, and more. The six minutes of footage -- street musicians included -- was mostly shot at SXSW, but there's a bit from A-Trak's Brooklyn neighborhood, as well.

Catch A-Trak live in Brooklyn on Friday, June 7th at Elsewhere.
