About the Author


Alain “A-Trak” Macklovitch is a Grammy Award-nominated DJ and founder of Fool’s Gold, a lifestyle brand and record label that has built the careers of artists such as Kid Cudi, Flosstradamus, and Danny Brown. At eighteen A-Trak became the youngest person ever to win the title of World DJ Champion. He went on to win the honor five more times. An in-demand remixer, he helped popularize electronic dance music (EDM) in the early 2000s through his collaborative project Duck Sauce. When the Needle Dropped is his first book.
