Amtrac continues his rise to the forefront of electronic music, this time remixing Ellie Goulding‘s “Without Your Love.” The original song begins with a brief but grandiose piano intro, before yielding to an urgent drumline and Ellie’s unmistakable vocals. Amtrac’s take adds pitched down vocals, a buzzing undercurrent and a steady kick drum, transforming “Without Your Love” from a sweeping power pop song to a dark, late night dance track. Several of Amtrac’s distinct touches are present – glitchy vocal splices, rollicking bass synths and steady buildups that give way to grooving dance beats.
Nike and Goulding have teamed up on a pair of shoes, as well as a collection of remixes from her latest album, Halcyon, in support of the upcoming Washington D.C. Women’s Half Marathon April 28th. Download Amtrac’s remix and the rest of the compilation here.
