Grammy Nomination – A-Trak

The entire world has sung along to Duck Sauce’s international breakout hit “Barbra Streisand” released in the US on Fool’s Gold/Downtown Records. The song charted at #1 in over 12 countries and racked up 65 million YouTube views with arguably the biggest viral video of all time, a quirky, star-studded homage to New York’s downtown scene. “Barbra” landed placements in Glee, How to Make it in America and countless ad campaigns. Continuing its assault, it is now nominated for a Grammy for Best Dance Recording. A-Trak’s partner in Duck Sauce, the legendary Armand Van Helden, is no stranger to the Grammys himself, having been nominated for Remixer of the Year in 1998. The video for the duo’s current single “Big Bad Wolf” has already shaken up the internet, heralded across the board as the best video of 2012 and sitting at 6 million views after just a few weeks of release.

This year has seen DJ A-Trak conquer every festival from Coachella to Hard Summer in America, Sonar and Creamfields in Europe, Parklife in Australia and Ultra Brazil all while bridging the gap between hip hop and electronic music. His groundbreaking label Fool’s Gold has had its biggest year to date, opening their own flagship store in Brooklyn over the summer and online store last month. A-Trak is set to perform at Madison Square Garden with fellow Grammy nominees Swedish House Mafia on December 16th.

Duck Sauce is currently preparing the release of their first full-length album in 2012!!!

YAY! School of Seven Bells, Dan Deacon and Fool's Gold are part of the musical entertainment line-up!!!

The inaugural Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusements is to be held at Chicago’s Eckhart Park from September 16-18, 2011. It’s a playground for adults and children, alike!

The ability to let oneself go and be enthralled by a Brilliant moment of entertainment and spectacle is at the heart of human experience. At every corner of the globe people come together to enjoy both the most Popular and also obscure ways of human Amusements. Some might say that Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusements hopes to reinvent the traditions of Vaudeville for a 21st century audience – a live mash up of art forms and entertainment under one umbrella. Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusement’s ultimate goal is to create a distinct environment that allows a wide audience to be entertained with the most creative ideas and performers regardless of genre. As a production, the event has no stylistic boundaries, it can incorporate circus artists, music, comedians, short film, carnival rides, games and hopefully more. Additionally it is not wedded to a festival, time or place. It may pop up in your neighborhood park, at a nearby theater for one night, or just parading down your block.

Access to the event grounds will be free and open to the public, where patrons can enjoy carnival games, rides, an outdoor music stage and sideshows. The renowned Renegade Craft Fair and a hand selected farmers’ market will also be part of the affair. For select ticketed shows, two large big top circus tents will feature performances from a variety of musical acts, circus performers and audiovisual experimentation.

Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusements is the brainchild of musician/presenter Mike Reed who has been an integral part of the programming for the Umbrella Music Collective, The Chicago Jazz Festival and New Music Mondays: Downtown Sound at Millennium Park.
