Amtrac dropped his second single of the year Formal Disco on May 17th, 2019 – the highly anticipated follow up to 2017’s Informal Disco. The first quarter of the year has been an active one for the accomplished producer and label head, having overseen the release of several tastemaking records from the likes of Amtrac himself, Durante, and Rick Trainor on his label Openers. Amtrac’s seemingly natural aptitude for consistency and abundant creative output continues to grow even stronger; keeping up a demanding touring schedule, managing his own record label, and scoring video games have not been a hindrance to doing what he does best – producing world class dance music.
Project Pablo’s remix of Formal Disco is a deep, soul-igniting, irresistibly danceable tune built upon a driving four-on-the-floor kick. The chords are warm and wide, the bass lines are deep and funky, and the synth arps are emotionally present yet curiously nostalgic. Project Pablo expands on the ethereal quality and unique emotion that Amtrac delivers in his productions by speeding up the tempo, adding unique modulating synth loops and reformatting the arrangement of the tune to make it underground warehouse rave ready.
