Amtrac – “I’m All Yours”
Pairs well with…Cream Anthems 2001 & 2002, Alan Braxe, Early 90s Dance
Amtrac is a solid house producer and DJ. The sound is something of a vocal deep disco house with brushes of sustained lo-fi synth and the occasional break from the 4x4 pattern. The vibe is part poolside, part lounge, part mainstage, depending on where the needle runs.
If you ever loved house music, if you enjoyed that moment in the early 90s when slower-tempo house tracks from Crystal Waters and Robin S vibed through your radio speakers, if you’ve ever warmed up to house from a cautious distance—-Amtrac is an opening to rediscover the genre. Let it bring you back to a moment when you were floating and bopping about the dancefloor or dorm room, when you were chanting along without knowing quite what you were chanting. House music can be a youth-preserving, effervescent force, a beautiful melody that holds your chin up even when times are tough.
Amtrac captures all that. I am an instant admirer. This is house music. Amtrac’s production and longer-length mixes (many available @ https://soundcloud.com/amtrac) remind me why, some years before Jersey Shore and dime-a-dozen pop remixes, a good faction of music fans perceived “house” as a bigger-than-music thing, a lifestyle, a mindset. This is great stuff, and I applaud any effort by Amtrac to bring more of these soulful blends to listeners and dancers alike.
