Herring.

Amtrac stated about the track “"If you were given 'Extra Time', how would you use it? Get lost in this sonic landscape which leaves plenty of room for the imagination."
Previously, Amtrac released his rapid-paced thriller track “Domino” with collaborator Future Islands’ Samuel T Herring, along with a 90’s inspired eccentric video representing a true underdog story. The music video is an eerie take on a work day in a corporate office, calling to mind the aesthetic of the golden era of groundbreaking 90s electronic videos (think Basement Jaxx, Aphex Twin, The Chemical Brothers, Squarepusher, Prodigy) and even a bit of The Twilight Zone. The video for “Domino” is a captivating, thought-provoking and even chill-inducing watch with the message of taking control of your life and finding peace.

Amtrac has more in store for this year including a performance at this year’s III Points Festival in Miami on October 21st. Be sure to stay tuned!
The Kentucky-born and Los Angeles-based artist, DJ, producer, remixer, multi-instrumentalist, and founder of Openers made his formal debut onto the scene in 2011 with his acclaimed album Came Along. The album elevated the Morehead, KY native—born Caleb Cornett—to the cutting edge of electronic music. In its wake, he amassed an acclaimed catalog of originals and remixes. The multi-talented artist can electrify an audience, be it with a moving live music performance or by working dancefloors up to a sweat with his driving yet funk-filled DJ sets. Never content to settle, Amtrac’s musical mood and influences change with each passing season. His ambition and curiosity keep him locked on the edge, always happy to experiment with new techniques and sounds. His music is what he feels in the moment. Simply put, his constant evolution comes from a hatred of boredom and a love for his labor. It’s just not in his nature to stagnate.
