Track of the Day: Amtrac – “Accessorize”
Every song carries a different purpose in our lives. Each running song, dancing song, “getting ready” song will keep bringing us back to those moments with every listen. Today’s track of the day comes from Midwest producer Amtrac and it is the perfect song for cruising into the warmer months. An accessory for your summer aptly named “Accessorize.”
“Accessorize” begins with a signature deep house feel that only Amtrac could create. The driving bass enters and a synth melody comes to the surface, for a moment, before disappearing again into the rhythm. It sounds as if the melody were a dolphin swimming with a boat. It rises to breathe and entertain yet dives back down to keep up with its motored counterpart, always staying at its side. As the track continues, another melody pokes its dorsal from the water. A smoother and more youthful sound, it breaks up the previous melody for a short breakdown, standing out from the remainder of “Accessorize.” The song holds its fluid ebb and flow for nearly 8 minutes yet ends too soon.
The track proves the perfect song for cruising, regardless of the journey. It’s the perfect track for long distances and begs for a repeat. “Accessorize” is the first single off of Amtrac’s new EP True Value, out April 21st.
