A Trak x Nike- Running Man Mix

I have to say that I am a little disappointed in the new A Trak mix that he did for the Nike workout mix series. "Running Man" starts off strong, and I was feeling the burn on the Stairmaster for the first 5 minutes last night listening to it. However the 45-minute mix is slow at times, and really just 5 or 6 long songs stretched out with some scratching mixed in. Definitely not a pump up mix for the gym, in my opinion. But maybe that's because I listen to mostly drum n' bass, Prodigy and old school Oakenfold during workouts.

In his defense, I'm sure there were some restrictions as to what he/Nike were allowed to include on the mix without paying sky-high licensing fees. He is still one of the world's best DJs and one of my favorites to see live. Catch him this summer on tour:

6/28 Glastonbury, England - Glastonbury Festival
6/30 London, England - Durrr @ The End
7/18 Chicago, IL - Sonotheque
7/19 Los Angeles, CA - Hard L.A. @ Shine Expo Center
7/20 New York, NY - Central Park SummerStage #%
8/07 Gothenburg, Sweden - Way Out West Festival
8/08 Oslo, Norway - Øya Festival
8/10 Toronto ON - Time Festival
8/16 Hasselt, Belgium - Pukkelpop Festival
8/30 Dublin, Ireland - Electric Picnic
9/06 Isle of Wight, England - Bestival

Hey, maybe you could even run to the show in your town blasting "Running Man?" No? Ok, I'll stop now.
