SUNDAY: When I realized superstar DJ/producer A-Trak was sitting next to me in the VIP I decided I should talk to him but had no idea what to say. At first he was taken off-guard when I asked him this thoughts on finding love at Coachella, but eventually doled out some valuable advice. (I blame the free spirit of the festival for allowing me to ask such a bold question.)
After a moments pause, the artist, real name Alain Macklovitch (whose brother Dave is half of Chromeo), said, I think theres something very romantic about finding love through good music. Looking around, he added, Here, everybodys got this sort of dry sweat on their skin. The icky layer. Its a very primal instinct I think. In order to love someone you gotta be OK with the odor of their sweat. Its better to get that outta the way.
His most valuable piece of advice? Dont look for love in the VIP. --TENIEL HUMESTON
