Alex Metric and AMTRAC deliver melodic collaboration, ‘Upswing’
Alex Metric and AMTRAC have reunited for a rejuvenating house collaboration, “Upswing.” With the latter making his Anjunadeep debut, the two producers finally unveil the track, after its showcase as James Grant and Jody Wisternoff‘s Printworks set opener in 2019 and appearance on Anjunadeep 11. The pair previously joined forces on AMTRAC’s long-awaited sophomore album, Oddyssey, with single “So Afraid.”
Setting the stage with ephemeral layers and coordinated piano chords, “Upswing” marries melodic instrumentation with pulsating beats, traversing an expert construction of groovy bass lines, zippy synth leads, and richly organic production. Featuring a spoken word sample, the track builds seaside-inspired auras with glimmering harmonic progressions while simultaneously inching a steady momentum—delivering a forward-thinking electronic sound curated in line with signature Anjunadeep stylings.
