What's up A-Trak? congratulations on your 2000 title at the ITF World champs.
How was the standard of competition compared to last year?
It was a lot higher. Plus One was really good, and sowere Pump from Canada
2) What's your schedule as far as championships in 2001?.
Probably none! I'm taking a break from battling.
3) Can you tell us a bit about the "All-Star Beatdown", the
newly formed Allies battle, and what's different from competitions like ITF
It's gonna be an invitational battle judged by some of the best DJs in the
world: the former ISP, X-ecutioners, Scratch Perverts and some of the Beat
Junkies. The format is head-to-head. We just want it to be the realest battle
4) What scratch/combo or special technique are you working on right now and
could you describe it shortly?.
I've been working on a couple of combos but I don't think I can really describe

then a new OD 12", and a full album within a year from now. Check out

surf the net?
None... I don't really have time to surf the net.
8) Have you seen "Scratch the Film" and "Wavetwisters"?
can you tell us a bit about it?.
I haven't seen "Scratch" but "Wavetwisters" is an animated
version of Q's album basically. It's pretty crazy.
