Last night A-Trak released the Tune Melt EP, a 4 track EP full of new music. It has been a while since we have heard anything new come from the Fools Gold CEO, so what can be expected with these new release? Lets take a brief journey into the EP and see what it’s all about.
The first track off the EP is the collaborative effort from the Canadian and the Austrian which is also the title of the EP. This track does not set the tone for the rest of the EP but is good non the less. While listening to the track you can clearly hears where Tommy Trash influences the electro banger, as well as A-trak. This is one of the tracks where you can really hear both artist as opposed to a song like “I Could Be the One” where the sound mostly makes you think of Avicii.
My personal favorite song from the EP. GTA (Van Toth and JWLS) who are originally a more moombahton oriented group who have recently started producing trap records with the trap wave that came this summer and put some nice 808’s on this song. “Landline” is not your typical trap banger, its nothing that you would ever hear from the likes of Luminox, Carnage or UZ, it’s on the softer side, you would never see Wake Flocka shaking his dreads to this one. The softness of this track allowed A-Trak to put himself in the song and have his recognized sound be associated with the trap movement. Also, the Woody Wood Pecker sample cracks me up every time.
I don’t even know what to say about this one. It’s just a bunch of dark sounds thrown together on this electronic track, I feel like I am walking through the club since of Blade 2.
Classic A-Trak record. This song brings the disco flavor that we associate with A-Trak and Ducksauce, having a few similarities to “aNYway.” Not only do we get a heavier drop that usually doesn’t appear on one of his disco influenced songs, but we also get to hear some of the DMC champ’s scratching capabilities
