Summer is almost out of reach, but the Tropical house lord Thomas Jack is making sure you’re never letting go… the young Australian DJ/producer has took the internet by storm over the past year racking up millions of soundcloud plays and causing an anxious wait for tour dates. THAT WAIT IS OVER – TJ is back with his new remix for Ben Sollee’s single “Letting Go” inspired by his recent travels to Tulum, Mexico, and is finally cleared his visa to travel stateside for a much anticipated string of dates this fall across North America alongside fellow Tropical house phenom KYGO. Grab the new jam below and be on the lookout for performances (finally) near you!
Thomas Jack on
After being named as one of Boomrat’s Top 50 Emerging artists, Amtrac is well on his way to becoming one of this year’s most consistent producers. His take on RAC’s Cheap Sunglasses, which features the catchy vocal licks of Matthew Koma, sees him skimming the waters of a progressive landscape, tipping the hat to early Kaskade and deadmau5 productions. There are euphoric moments driven by his classy chord progression and energetic arps, but they’re laced with a bit of melancholy from waning strings and moody pads. It’s no wonder that he’s gearing up to provide support for Kygo on tour this Fall, and I don’t think it’ll be long before we see him headlining tours of his own.
Great tracks are often swept under the rug, dismissed, and forgotten. It seems that now more than ever, there are heaps of tracks that are given a second chance after being scooped up by bigger labels. We caught up with Amtrac, who is having his 2012 hit ‘Those Days’ re-released on the legendary Toolroom imprint.
We couldn’t be more proud of our own, Tropicool. He just signed to Bond Music Group, taking the deep disco world by storm, and is about to head out on a sold out North America tour with the young prodigy, Kygo. Tropicool just dropped off quite an amazing soundtrack, in the form of a mix, cleverly entitled ‘Moonrise Barometer’. It’s nothing short of silky-smooth, and self-proclaimed to ‘be for interstellar lays, moonlit poolside daze, and warm glistening rays.’ It’s deep, sexy, & feel good. Don’t sleep on this, and hopefully you’re lucky enough to catch one of the dates below!
