Can Never Have Too Much Amtrac Music

Amtrac seems to have an endless outlet of creativity. He is on a steady stream releasing EP’s and remixes. Looking way out of the box for musical inspiration. Releasing earlier this month a remix of Sigur Rós’s  Heysátan. The musical piece, performed with live instruments such as brass, guitar and piano synth, has some age to it. Amtrac revives the Icelandic bands song into a melancholic house beat. Adding an ambient synth over the original brass melody and splicing in some vocals. A free download Right after releasing a couple of EP’s back to back.

While always working on remixes he always comes back around with the original sound. Releasing Farewell and Renton on Waze & Odyssey’s Street Tracks following another 2 track EP on Kidnap Kid’s Birds That Fly label. Some of the best tunes to hit a dance floor that can sway audiences between ambient beats an deep basslines, Amtrac does it big. Not even stopping there because while he is not releasing originals he has some more remixes.

With no signs of stopping, his most recent remix, Days Of Lavender. An ambient track leaving you drifting off. From Promises Ltd. EP by Chrome Sparks and Charlie Brand Amtrac targets Days of Lavender. An upbeat electro track off the duos debut EP reimagined.  You will instantly hear the difference but both leave you breathless. Amtrac just continues to take his creativity to new levels.

Option4 Stimulates Minds & Ears with EP Comic Project

Though based in Denver, CO Brennen Bryarly stays close to his Chicago family with roots deeply embedded in deep house and underground. Under the alias Option4 he took the underground Chicago house sound and made his own formula out of it and continues to push his creative limits. His influence has given him opportunities to befriend Chicago artists’ like Autograf and remix a track or collaborate with. He has also been able to take his Chicago influence to his home in Denver and reshape the underground house scene there with his promotional company the Hundred and music festival Cloak & Dagger.

Over the last month Option4 has been releasing a new project little by little through NestHQ releases. Working with Sweat It Out label on this, this project is outside the box than your conventional EP releases. Collaborating with Ashley Jones on art illustrations, Brennen has created a soundtrack for an alternate reality comic book series based upon characters and friends in his music career and home city of Denver, CO. The outcome is quite an entertaining and interactive experience between fans and the artist.

The comic is based upon the legalization of marijuana in Denver, CO and the expectations that came out of it vs the reality. Many believed the legalization of the herb would raise crime rate levels as a consequence. What has happened was quite the opposite, the city thrived economically and everyone was too baked and happy to produce crime. This comic portrays the expectations of the fearful public and as the listener and reader you can listen to and watch as the story unfolds with every release.

Kaskade With A Couple Surprising Collabs

It always slips my mind that Kaskade is from Chicago. One of the few and growing number of artists that built a name for themselves coming out of this beautiful city. Giving himself opportunities to work with artists like Alicia Keys as he did with his lastest hit In Common. Putting her in a different element from her usual soul and R&B selection. The two artist work on beautiful dance track with somewhat of a Latino vibe to get your hips shaking on the dance floor.

Then one after another Kaskade releases another collab this time with Too Many Zoos; A trio famous for the subway jams on Youtube. With a combination of horns and house music the artists pull together Jorts, a wild track filled with energy that you cannot help but jump around too. Building up with pumps on the saxophone, it leads to a trumpet blaring drop and holds that energy throughout over an ambient lead by Kaskade.

THROWBACK THURSDAY: A TRIBE CALLED QUEST

tribe called quest 4

Four Guys (Left to Right) Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Q-Tip, Phife Dawg and Jarobi wore hip Afrocentric clothes and rhymed to jazz infused beats, formed a phenomenal hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest in 1985. QUEST was the original name of the group but was later given the prefix A Tribe Called by their high school friends.

ATCQ formed a crew with House music group Jungle Brothers and hip-hop group De La Soul, called The Native Tongues. Because of their live energy during performances, they created a buzz in the city of Brooklyn, New York which led them to get signed with Jive Records in 1989. This began the journey of a rap group prodigy for the 1990’s decade.

A Tribe Called Quest made it popular to talk about social issues that could be related to young African Americans such as sex, politics, relationships, stealing your parents car to joy ride and also the use of the N word. while still having fun encouraging positivity through it all. Unlike other hip-hop groups at the time ATCQ was in their own lane. They greeted jazz with bass-heavy rhythmic vibes and eclectic sampling. They have several memorable songs including Bonita Applebum, Can I Kick It and (above) I Left my Wallet in El Segundo. When you listen to ATCQ music what message do you get from the song? How does the beat make you feel?

At this current time, A Tribe Called Quest is still performing at some events, making appearances with their old school friend’s on stage (Busta Rhymes, De La Soul) and new school artist as well. On November 13, 2015 they released a special 25th anniversary edition collection of the group’s classic debut album People’s Instinctive Travels And The Paths of Rhythm.

The album is a cool artsy looking trunk filled with remastered original tapes re-released with exclusive new remixes by a few of today’s biggest hip-hop artists who have credited A Tribe Called Quest as a major creative influence. Unfortunately it has sold out everywhere at this point so you may have to borrow a friends. Until then they are on social media so follow them below. It’s the Tribe Yall! Real Live Yall!

Umek – Dichotomy

“Qandisa is a Moroccan goddess of love and lust. And that’s dichotomous. By definition in dichotomy everything in two subsets must belong to one part or the other and at the same time nothing can belong simultaneously to both parts. That should be the case with love and lust. In love there’s got to be lust, while lust itself can exist without love.” 

A beautiful description of the title EP Dichotomy by Umek. Just two tracks to add to your playlist, the title track and Qandisa, the goddess. But every bit is ever so addicting. Umek is truly a King among Techno house artists if there is not one already. One that treats his fans nicely. All over 2 million of them get a nice preview for Christmas of his upcoming track Console Generation.
