Madonna 'working with A-Trak on new LP'
Madonna has reportedly secured DJ A-Trak as a producer for her next studio album.
The 'Celebration' singer, whose last record Hard Candy was released in 2008, is said to want an "old skool" feel to her new material.
Speaking about the direction of the record, A-Trak told the Daily Star: "It's my production, turned into song structure - halfway between rap and electronic and whatever else I listen to."
Madonna is also expected to work with Pearl Jam producer Brendan O'Brien on the album, which is provisionally scheduled for release later this year.
A-Trak has previously worked with Armand Van Helden as duo Duck Sauce, who released single 'aNYway' in October.

Decked Out 10th Anniversary Charity Show
Decked Out, the pioneering DJ/artist agency that launched in London in 2000, celebrates its 10th anniversary with what is sure to be the party of the decade with a line up that features Justice, Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, Dave Clarke and Crookers amongst many others.
Party promoters Bugged Out conceived the idea of Decked Out towards the end of 1999 and it is Decked Out’s first lady Martje Kremers’ roster that forms the line up for the party at the Coronet on February 5th. And what a line up! Most of the DJ’s will be playing either special sets or joining forces. In the main room Justice’s Xavier will play with Erol Alkan, Busy P from Ed Banger is playing a special French Touch set, Crookers are playing techno, Dave Clarke electro and Boys Noise & DJ Mehdi are playing vinyl only. Brodinski will hook up with DJ Feadz and The Glimmers and Aeroplane are already perfectly formed duos and the spectacularly named Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo from The Bloody Beetroots will conclude the night. In room 2 are Headman, JoJo De Freq, Rory Phillips, Midfield General, Mickey Moonlight and Decked Out’s first signing Justin Robertson.
All DJ’s will also all be giving up their fees as all proceeds from this special night will go towards local charity Kids Company.

Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo (The Bloody Beetroots)
Xavier Du Rosnay (Justice)
