House hero Amtrac has released a quality new tune in the form of “Hold On,” a soulful slice of four-four heaven fit for a proper after-hours endeavor. During the up-and-comer’s steady rise into mainstream awareness, he’s hinted off and on at an album in the works – but hasn’t explicitly stated whether or not this track will be part of the effort.
Featuring the gravelly organ bass line of future house but with distinctly more classic groove, the top line of “Hold On” consists of vocal stems from Marvin Gaye and Tami Terrel’s “Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing.” A simple, filtered rave piano melody drives the pace of the track almost as much as the percussion itself before giving way to a bridge that provides a restful interlude before it picks back up.
While Amtrac has been quiet on the album front in recent months, we’ll provide more information on the upcoming effort as it surfaces. In the meantime, listen to “Hold On” and let us know what you think of the track by sounding off in the comments.
