To say that Amtrac has found his footing would be a drastic understatement. He’s been on a rapidly uphill climb, and rightfully so. His remix of Depeche Mode‘s Should Be Higher is nothing short of brilliant. The tight musicality in the synth work paired with the legendary vocals of David Gahan make this another belter of a tune.

After a string of releases with Main Course and OWSLA, Wuki has firmly established himself in the ranks of producers blurring the genre lines while being firmly rooted in bass. We’re proud to give away his bootleg of Dog Blood’s Chella Ride, which is an absolute monster of a track. Broken drums, riotous vocal chops and hyped chords make this a peak-time weapon.
LA lost a good one when yung Urulu decided he wanted to move across the pond and settle up in the UK. After he launched his Amadeus imprint and released a handful of chart-topping EPs, it was time. Quite possibly at the forefront of the recent resurgence of 90s inspired bliss house, the groove has been his mantra. So on this hour long mixtape for the esteemed Deep House Amsterdam, you’ll see where his taste meets class, and his penchant for the yesteryear seems ahead of his time.
Today’s dose of techno comes courtesy of LA’s Charles I, who dropped his Attrition EP today. The two part release is a brash eight and a half minutes of malcontent synthwork and carefully articulated noise that translates into a cohesive thrashing. Pick up both tracks for free below.
What better way to coast into the weekend than a free download from longtime GDD favorite Amtrac. Last year was a bit of a breakthrough year for him as he was asked to provide tour support for Kaskade, and also found himself on some pretty awesome HARD lineups. This newest track he just dropped called Don’t Know, which also features the help of the Posso babes, is some terrific fuel to fire you up for the hotter months ahead. Warm keys, jacking drums and catchy vocal chops make this another weapon from the Amtrac arsenal. If you’re gonna be in Miami for WMC, he’ll be doing a b2b set with Jack Beats at the OWSLA Good Times party and also throwing weights at the Skrillex & Friends party at Mansion on the 28th.
Now living in Miami by way of Munich, Germany, Dinnerdate is one to keep an eye out for this year. With soulful pads and lush chords, he has a penchant for the groove. With his newest track Going On, he gives a familiar sample a fresh touch and new life. If you’re in Miami tomorrow night, he’ll be spreading the vibes at Bardot for the ever budding Slap & Tickle party.
As we get ready to slide into the weekend, rising Miami talent Artec dishes out a nostalgic touch-up of Calvin Harris‘ hit track Bounce. Instead of hitting you over the head with overly anthemic synth patches or obnoxious amounts of white noise, he delivers a solid club track that tugs on your guilty pleasures while Kelis‘ familiar vocals do some work to get stuck in your head for the first time since 2011. Grab the free download below and be on the lookout for more Artec material in the near future.

The only ones not complaining about the brutal cold felt in most of North America are the producers who’d normally be stuck inside regardless of weather conditions. So for Canadian music makers Prince Club & Poupon, they’re getting along just fine.
