Dj A-Trak and The Roots in “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”

2014 is turning out to be another definitive year for Fool’s Gold boss A-Trak. From the release of the funk-heavy Duck Sauce album Quack alongside studio partner Armand Van Helden, the man is more in-demand than ever.

On Sunday, the A-Track turntablist stepped in on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” as guest DJ but suddenly, The Roots, who have had plenty of practice appearing every weeknight as the house band, switched roles and start performing a track from their new LP …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin, scratching prowess of A-Trak along with The Metropolis Ensemble for a mesmerizing four minutes. Watch them do “Never” joined by A-Trak and the Metropolis Ensemble..

The Roots are coming back people!

Band leader and drummer Questlove, released the news on twitter stating that they will be in Australia on the 26th of Dec and are planning on staying for a week in 2013. The Roots were regulars to Australia, starting out at the Vivid Festival in 2003 then coming back in 07 for a Blues and Roots festival. Australian fans were pretty distraught after they canceled on the Good Vibrations festival in 09 and announced they were officially retiring from touring, but hopefully a week in Australia, during the hype of festival season will make up for lost time.
