A-Trak’s seventh Short Cuts episode brings in the turntable talents of DMC World Champions Enferno and DJ Shiftee, collectively known as E.A.S.Y., to showcase their live remixing skills on A-Trak’s latest hit, Push.
E.A.S.Y. made their first notable mark on the scene parodying Andy Samberg’s When Will The Bass Drop. Continuing their friendly retaliation against “button-pushers,” their live remix video of Push focuses on the duo’s dexterity on the decks and their aptitude for comedy–the two DJs are featured sipping wine in slow motion and blowing leaves into the wind.
The remix stays true to A-Trak’s vision and keeps the energy high while giving the track a trap flavor about midway through. They interject the original’s steady rhythm with calculated breaks and Wyatt’s chopped-up vocals to emphasize beats that were not originally the focus. Put simply, the track is the perfect example of turntablism and the art of true DJing.
