Add another name to the list of prominent musical acts from of Pittsburgh. Actually, add three names.
In an item published by Rolling Stone today, the magazine declared Pittsburgh-born-and-based DJs Preslav Lefterov, Thomas Cox and Adam Ratana — who collectively call themselves Pittsburgh Track Authority — as artists to watch.
Pittsburgh Track Authority’s debut album, Enter the Machine, will be released later this month, and the famed music magazine describes it as “a no-frills, blue-collar, pistoning dance album.” High praise, considering those first two adjectives are usually used in conjunction with football.
“There are lots of good Pittsburgh artists that accomplished things — Wiz Khalifa, Girl Talk, Modey Lemon, Anti-Flag — but very few of them set up shop here,” Cox told the magazine.
