Dreamtrak – “Bad Thoughts” (Stereogum Premiere)
Dreamtrak is the moniker of London electro producer Oli Horton, who worked with fellow Brits CYMBALS on their latest LP. This past spring he gave us a taste of his own work with the appropriately dreamy track “The Tide,” featuring silky vocals by Alexander Burnett, and now he’s prepared to follow that up with a fall EP. Dreamtrak amps up the energy on “Bad Thoughts,” an explosive dance song packed with thumping house beats and retro synths. The electro ambiance builds behind an an assortment of percussion that escalates into a bursting drop. As an alarm rings towards the end, you’ll feel as if you were among a sweaty dance crowd under flashing neon lights. Listen below.
