For all the hopeful house talents to emerge from the North American circuit, there has been something wholeheartedly consistent about AMTRAC’s past 12-months of studio output. Ranging commercial remix duties to releases on Toolroom Records, there’s a sense that Caleb Cornett is keeping both sides of the industry coin happy with his fluid club etiquette.
Dropping in the wake of remix duties for Axwell Λ Ingrosso and presented as part of the Acura 8-speed playlist, “Broadway” sees the Kentucky native back on the original format with a nod to the nation’s initial house mecca. Far from a Chicago house throwback, this airy tech house offering pairs rigid sample work with that signature blend of fine melodic composure and outright club playability that has hallmarked the AMTRAC sound to date.
It’s a reassuring bridge from the cookie-cutter ‘deep’ sound that solidifies AMTRAC as a new age player giving his own unique spin on the ongoing resurgence of solid house records
