Kicking off W Kuala Lumpur's second WET Sessions on Friday 26 October is guest DJ & Producer, Amtrac - a producer, musician, and vocalist who will be on deck duty from midnight onwards up on the Wetdeck.
With the titles of producer, musician, DJ, and vocalist to his name, versatility has become Caleb Cornett’s calling card since the release of his debut LP Came Along in 2011. Raised on an eclectic palate of musical influences from Pink Floyd, The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers since his childhood in Morehead, Kentucky, his vast musical exposure has led to an unrivaled diversity in his performances as well as across his own productions.
Never content to settle, Amtrac’s musical mood and influences change with each passing season, spanning across disco, indie-dance, and deep house. From the Stevie Wonder sampled “Those Days” to the house-fueled “Hold On,” - which broke into the Top 10 Beatport House charts - Cornett has only continued to push his creative limits and receive praise across BBC Radio 1 titans Pete Tong, Annie Mac, and Danny Howard.
As impressive as his original works may be, one can’t discuss the producer’s body of work without mentioning the Amtrac remix, a coveted commodity in today’s music business. Sigur Ros, Duke Dumont, Alex Metric, Two Door Cinema Club and more have all requested the Amtrac treatment, and each time the producer has delivered and then some.
With a resume carrying the names of noted tastemaker labels including Toolroom and Kitsuné, his most recent EPs have come through Kidnap Kid’s Birds That Fly imprint and Waze & Odyssey’s Street Tracks, noting another step in his sonic evolution. His ambition and curiosity keep him locked on the edge, always happy to experiment with new techniques and sounds. His music is what he feels in the moment. Simply put, his constant evolution comes from a hatred of boredom and a love for his labour.
W is giving an experience that is as fabulous as it is fun, all the while surrounded by movers and shakers who bring with them the cosmopolitan of the city – think flirty fusion of cocktails and ‘gram-worthy views overlooking the city’s beautiful skyline as the sun goes down.
From the local brigade Obadius, Lish and Random KID take up support duties for the night at both Woobar and Wetdeck.
