Amtrac Channels Marvin Gaye in New Original, ‘Hold On’
Amtrac - Hold On (Original Mix) [Toolroom]

Kentucky’s leading man Amtrac finally dropped his much-teased new original, Hold On, a powerful house number complete with Marvin Gaye vocal samples.

First premiered by Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1, Hold On showcases Amtrac’s supreme production skills through its blending of light, elusive chords with low bass and atmospheric synths to create a hypnotizing melody. Vocal samples from Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing add a refreshing touch of funk to the otherwise punchy, late-night track.

Grab Hold On when it releases Aug. 21 on Toolroom Records, and look out for Amtrac’s second album, which he told Billboard he hopes to release by the end of the year.
