The brainchild of Dj-Producer Matt Kye and vocalist Alec Sun Drae, AM2PM has 30 years of collective experience in the Club industry. They are a production duo, remix outfit, a club LIVE ACT and hosts of weekly radio show HOUSE ARREST with AM2PM on HOUSEBEAT RADIO UK. Their sound is inspired by a mix of underground 90s, Classic and Deep House with a touch of Garage.
Since joining forces in 2013, Matt and Alec have had releases on a multitude of record labels. Their release “Remember The Good Times” hit number 1 spot on Beatport in the House category of ‘Top 10 Must Listen Tracks’. They also had Top10 success on the Traxsource Soulful Charts. AM2PM has also worked with artists such as Dolly Rockers, Electronic Youth, Ross Couch, Tom Gianelli, Code3000, Richard Earnshaw and a host of others, as well as having performed in a series of prestigious venues all around Europe.
A few days ago Carrillo Music – a hot, on-the-rise, American independent electronic record label – dropped a preview of the track “Turn Me Out” (Radio Edit) by AM2PM. Tracks like this don’t come along often. I’m impressed with the way AM2PM has evolved, comparing their earlier works to this one. These two put out so much of a rush for the mind, body and soul. “Turn Me Out” is just splendid, from start to finish.
I had to play this track 3 times in a row to listen to everything, because Matt Kye put in so much to hear, while Alec Sun Drae’s voice is to die for. Her thick, lush vocal is haunting, yet soothing, and far better than the normal “out of breath” style used by so many EDM singing queens.
Whenever you see a musical product that carries the name “Carrillo Music” you know that you are going to get something that bit special, and “Turn Me Out” (Radio Edit) by AM2PM is no exception to the rule. It is incredibly catchy and clever, staying in your head for days afterwards.
The track is refreshingly crisp, containing amazing musical moments, melodies and phrases one has come to expect from one of the UK`s finest modern-day electronic duo’s – Dj-Producer Matt Kye and vocalist Alec Sun Drae. “Turn Me Out” can lay claim to being a dance anthem. The way this particular track builds to a crescendo is superb, and an extra plus is that this track has great background sounds and incredible mixing and mastering!
What you will come to realize is that this is a track of extraordinary depth and talent that seems richer with every spin. Unlike most EDM music which grows dated in months, I have a feeling this one will go down as a classic. It’s hard not to be excited about what AM2PM has in store for us in the future!
