Sunglasses 'A Must' on A-Trak Tour

Published: 2006-05-05
At first glance Alain Macklovitch, a white boy from Montreal, doesn't look like he even listens to hip hop, let alone that he's a world champion DJ and turntablist and has been spinning records since he was in his early teens.

But that's exactly the back story of 'A-Trak,' the multiple award-winning DJ who has spent the past few months on the Touch the Sky Tour with Grammy Award-winning rapper Kanye West.

Now the Montreal-based DJ is set to embark on his own, Sunglasses is a Must tour, which is also the title of his upcoming DVD. The DVD features live performances recorded since Macklovitch was a young teen, journals from his trips around the globe, and other tasty extras.

He is also preparing to release an solo album some time this fall, which is untitled as of yet.

But for those of you who can't wait that long, here's the specs on where you can catch him on tour - just don't forget your shades!
