Kanye West DJ set to release track dedicated to ‘joggers’

DJ A-Trak supplies soundtrack for runners

DJ A-Trak is releasing a 45-minute opus “dedicated to joggers” via the iTunes store this week (July 1).

The track ‘Running Man: Nike + Original Run’ was commissioned by Nike, in order to provide an inspiring audio accompaniment for running enthusiasts.

The hip-hop turntablist turned dance DJ, who regularly tours with Kanye West, explained he is not a jogger himself – but was happy to help out those who regularly pound the streets.


“I don’t really run, but I got excited by the musical challenge,” A-Trak said. “I had to weave sounds together so the runner didn’t get interrupted or distracted.”
