A-Trak to Perform on DJcity’s ‘MikiDz Show’ Live Stream



DJcity’s MikiDz Show has featured some of the world’s most influential in DJs, including Jazzy Jeff, QBert, Z-Trip, and Craze. On Monday, Oct. 29, the show will add to that list with a performance from none other than A-Trak.

Though many of his friends have appeared on the show, it will be A-Trak’s first performance. It’s been a long time coming, and we’re very excited to have him.

The live stream will follow Monday’s world-class performance from Miles Medina, who won A-Trak’s inaugural Goldie Awards DJ Battle in 2017. (We’ll post the video of his set and interview this Thursday.)

The MikiDz Show is hosted by MikiWAR and DJ Dainjazone and includes an opening set from DJ Rell. Watch it at 7 p.m. PT on DJcity’s Facebook page or website.
