After spending most of the past month building buzz for his new Push EP, A-Trak has allowed for the project to be streamed in its entirety. Chances are you’ve already heard the original and The Chainsmokers Remix, but there’s five more pieces to the “Push” puzzle. A-Trak’s new EP features seven new offerings from the Fool’s Gold boss and his cohorts, including remixes of “Push” by producers such as Cazzette, GANZ, and PeaceTreaty. Today’s premiere of Push comes courtesy of Billboard, who also conducted a brief Q&A with A-Trak to talk about the new project. You can stream the full EP below, as well as read a snippet of the interview regarding A-Trak’s latest.

When did you lay the track down?

About a year ago. I was trying to figure out who to sing on it, and with Andrew we knocked out the vocal, in person, which I think really helps. It’s hard to phone that sort of thing in. There’s a lot of vocalists that do receive a track and lay down the vocal and send it back in, but Andrew’s not your typical topliner. He’s an artist himself, and it was cool to vibe with him and figure out the intersection of our tastes, and what we both felt was good for the song.

“Push” also sounds different from your most recent output, like with Low Pros and Duck Sauce. What was the inspiration for that? Were you listening to anything different?

What I like about ["Push"] is I’m not trying to do one thing in particular. That’s what’s cool about being a DJ. DJs really need to shake off this idea that you need to make bangers and club anthems. In our sets we can throw in as many curveballs as we want because our selection is trusted, which is rare. We should take those same liberties with the music that we choose to make. Ever since Avicii came out with a country song, it gave a seal of approval for so many possibilties. It’s so awesome he did that. I’ve done so many things — Duck Sauce, remixes, and Low Pros most recently — so for the stuff I want to put under my name there’s less of a direct reference.
