Friend Within collaborates with Fools Gold boss A-Trak as the two join forces on ‘Know Each Other, the second single from the Bristol-based artist’s debut LP ‘Hope’ on Toolroom.
A 90’s turntablism prodigy, winning the 1997 DMC World Championships at the age of just 15, Canadian DJ, producer and turntablist A-Trak has grown to become a leading figure within the global dance landscape. Since then he’s launched his own label Fool’s Gold, toured with the likes of Chromeo, The Rub, DJ Mehdi and Kavinskym, remixed Boys Noize and Simian Mobile Disco, and gained support and recognition from the likes of Erol Alkan, Busy P, DJ AM, Annie Mac and MSTRKRFT. As well as huge international success as a solo artist, he’s also one half of Duck Sauce alongside New York based house legend, Armand Van Helden.
The only collaboration featured on the album, and a follow up the excellent ‘For You’ which dropped on Toolroom in November, ‘Know Each Other’ welcomes a stunning, groove-laden slice of house music combining a quirky and slick trademark Friend Within production combined with the delicious lashings of funk that A-Trak brings to his tracks – offering a second sneak peak into Friend Within’s highly anticipated debut album scheduled for this March.
Friend Within & A-Trak ‘Know Each Other’ drops via Toolroom on 12th February 2021.
