Amtrac proudly shares his sophomore album Oddyssey, out now on Openers/RCA Records. The new album features contributions from Alex Metric, Saint Kenaire, and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
Nearly a decade after Came Along, Oddyssey further expands Amtrac’s world of earworm-y, thoughtful dance tunes alongside some new indie sensibilities. The album promises instances of release and reflection, with Amtrac’s discerning musicality threading these moments together.
The Kentucky-born and Los Angeles-based artist, DJ, producer, remixer, multi-instrumentalist, and founder of Openers, made his formal debut onto the scene in 2011 with his acclaimed album, Came Along. The album elevated the Morehead, KY native—born Caleb Cornett—to the cutting edge of electronic music. In its wake, he amassed an acclaimed catalog of originals and remixes. Lending his touch to tunes by Two Door Cinema Club, Elderbrook, Sigur Rós, and Chromatics, Pitchfork described his remixing as “epic-sounding.” Among the originals, 2014’s Those Days, notably boasted vocals from Stevie Wonder. Following the 2016 solo, EP Lost In Motion, he reached a new plateau on the 1987 EP during 2017. Both Never Lost and Piano Boy put up over 6 million Spotify streams each as his total stream tally neared the 100 million mark. Along the way, he earned praise from Billboard, Mixmag, Revolt, Complex, i-D Magazine, and more. Not to mention, he has headlined shows on four continents. Launching Openers in 2017, he provided a home to tracks by Durante, Rick Trainor, Luces, and many others. Amtrac is looking ahead to 2020 with new music and his new partnership with RCA Records.
