What is the significance of your name and how did you get that name?
My name is inspired by the 1982 movie Tron, which was before my time. It’s one of my favorite movies to date. Tron was a computer program, and my DJ’ing reflects the digital age that we live in. A is the first letter of my government name, and when I combined it all together, I got A-Tron.
Describe your style?
My style entails a lot of looping, sampling, and blends. I take full advantage of my DJ software Serato but at the same time, I use my turntablism skills to bring the new and old together. My father got me turntables at a young age and pushed me to have old school skills. In high school, my uncle got me Serato, and that changed how I DJ completely.
What was the first record you start scratching and mixing on the turntables?
My family had a big record collection so I would play around with Michael Jackson’s records, but the first record on wax I brought myself and really spinned on my table was 50 Cent’s “Get Rich or Die Tryin”. That thang still bangs.
