It’s Miami season once again, and that only means one thing: funky track edits catered for late night dance parties.

I’ve always spoken of Amtrac’s ability to release killer tracks at an alarming rate, but this is just getting ridiculous. Coming off of a track for Acura and the official release of his “Those Days VIP” mix, we’re now getting this rewokring of “Paradigm.” Amtrac’s “Temptation” mix is certainly that, featuring an absolutely infectious-yet-simple melody, perfect vox sampling and that upbeat house vibe we’ve come to expect from the producer. Stream this one now, and prepare for whatever comes next from this guy.
Over the past three months, we’ve seen quite the hand of remixes dealt by the mysterious guise known as Foreign & Domestic. Blending elements of g-house and ghetto tech, this new project is definitely keeping things fresh. Today, the track in question is a remix of “Bubblegum” done to grimy ghetto perfection. Some haunting vox-pitching and a tough bassline are the main attraction, so I’m guessing you’ll be hearing this played out in Miami quite a few times. Grab the free DL now and look out for more Foreign & Domestic.
