LISTEN: Duke Dumont ‘Need U (100%)’ ft. A*M*E (Amtrac Remix)
At the beginning of the year, DUKE DUMONT teamed up with A*M*E and released ‘Need U (100%)’ bringing forth a catchy tune with a killer beat and infectious lyrics.
Caleb Cornett, American DJ known as AMTRAC has got his hands on the single and played on it’s unique collaboration of genres making it an even catchier soul-dance inspired piece of music. AMTRAC has transformed ‘Need U’ from a Pop-Esq song into a more club-dance beat whilst still maintaining most of the songs lyrics.
The minute mark is set to hook you as the beat reaches a climax and the intensity is immensely scaled up. AMTRAC plays around with the lyrics, chopping and changing where they go depending on when the beat is dropped.
The song is almost impossible to resist, especially when the beat comes in and takes you on a six and a half minute thrill ride with the ‘Need U’ hum in the background. AMTRAC has some epic originals up his sleeve and has also remixed tracks from Two Door Cinema Club, Alex Metric and Kaskade, adding his beatific touch to make this unique but exciting mixture of sounds.
