DHA Mixtape #222 By Amtrac

Amtrac is a multi-talented artist who can electrify an audience, be it with a moving live music performance or by working dancefloors up to a sweat with his driving yet funk-filled DJ sets.

From there, he branched out even further with “Hey There Kiddo”, an all-sample opus, and “The Scheme”.
