In February 2023, multi-instrumentalist, producer, songwriter, and 'genre-defying melody man' (Billboard) Amtrac released his highly-anticipated third album 'Extra Time' via Openers. This follows his collaboration with Diplo and Leon Bridges on 'High Rise' and the recent release of 'I'll Be Around', his collaboration with English vocalist/producer Elderbrook.Inspired by a period of deep reflection during the 2020 lockdowns, 'Extra Time' consists of a handcrafted fuse of delicate textures and gritty styles into an unfiltered sonic trip, with each song depicting the process of emotions during a time of uncertainty for the future. It's a 13-track exploration of forced introspection, a cohesive story that finishes with a surreal feeling of hope.Amtrac stated: 'I made this record to encompass what I was feeling during the times of uncertainty in the world, it helped me cope and was my outlet for everything I was going through. When the listener is done with this album I'm hoping to create the feeling of when you left the movie theater as a child and just saw something that made you think differently.'Designed to mimic the tension and release of a classic film score, the unique sound of 'Extra Time' was heavily influenced by Amtrac's immersion in the worlds of Jazz and 90s video game music, particularly the classic 90s computer game Grim Fandango and the sonic landscapes of Miles Davis and Stanley Turrentine in addition to the groundbreaking work of fellow electronic pioneers such as Bonobo and Dan Snaith. Album highlights include kickoff track 'Heard Me Right' which was described by Billboard as a 'moving mix of rhythmic bass lines and atmospheric melodies', 'Contrast' featuring vocalist Reva Devito, and 'Domino' featuring Future Islands frontman Samuel T. Herring that Fangoria described as 'like John Carpenter and Basement Jaxx had a baby'. The album also features vocals from his friend Naeem, who worked closely with Amtrac on the jazzy and suspended-in-time groove of 'Hesitation.' 'Nobody Else' flips a vocal from the Four Tops classic 'I Can't Help Myself' over energetic drums and sultry guitar, and 'Dancing With You' unfolds with traditional house elements toward an explosive climax of layered synths. Having made his name with intense DJ sets and creative remixes and collaborations, 'Extra Time' is the perfect showcase for Amtrac's trademark stylistic dexterity and melodic sensitivity - and redefines what it means to create electronic music in 2023.
