Our favorite Kentucky native Amtrac proves yet again that he’s a producer on the rise and one to watch out for. His diverse production style — ranging from nu-disco and deep house — makes it difficult to pinpoint a constant sonic persuasion in his outputs. For his remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Without Your Love” Amtrac ventures into the house world, distorting Ellie’s vocals into near oblivion and incorporating the kind of bouncy bass that’s easy to get addicted to. The track comes to us as part of a Nike-sponsored “Halcyon” remix package available as a free download via Interscope.
One of our favorite rising producers, Amtrac, is back with another solid remix for his fans. This time, the Kentucky born artist takes on Alec Metric’s “Rave Weapon,” and if the result were an inanimate object it would be a sparkling disco ball. His remix is funky and comparatively mellow when juxtaposed by Metric’s wonky original but Amtrac does well to keep the groove as righteous as ever. Amtrac’s versatility as a producer continues to impress us and we’re excited to see what he comes up with next.
High-octane dance music has its place, but sometimes you just want to close your eyes and groove. Kentucky native, Amtrac continues his pattern of producing absolutely stellar top-down Sunday drive tunes with his latest offering, “Alone.” The track is soothing from start to finish with an enticing lead, melodious drum patterns, and angelic vocals reminiscent of songstress Ellie Goulding. “Alone” is set for release via LessThan3 recordings.Posted by
Amtrac consistently produces the kind of dance music that’s so universal our parents might bob their heads along to the beat. His newest release, “Those Days” continues this pattern. The funky drums, roaring vocals, and tinkling melody have a vintage, disco-y vibe all without feeling too aged. Most importantly the track — like so much of his music — has a soul, an element that has become increasingly rare in the dance music world. A search for “famous people from Kentucky” yields few results, but we see that changing in the future — hop on his bandwagon before it leaves the station.
Amtrac has proven to be a reliable source of feel good remixes, and his take on “Last Time” is no exception. With some adjustments from the under-appreciated producer, Telephoned’s R&B tune is transformed into a disco dance track with an undeniably soulful groove. For anyone concerned about the state of dance music, look no further than Amtrac for reassurance. The Kentucky native continuously proves that the genre hasn’t been completely stripped of passion.
We’ve been posting a lot of big room tracks lately and we decided to balance that out with AMTRAC’s softer remix of “Birds of Paradise.” AMTRAC is a multi-talented producer, songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist who comes to us by way of Kentucky — although he currently lays his hat in Miami. With it’s funky vibe and groovy bassline, “Birds of Paradise,” is the perfect addition to your road trip or summer playlist. We also encourage you to check out his summer remix of his original production, “Came Along.”
