AMS (formally known as Illuminati AMS) is a DJ/Producer collective that has touched nearly every realm of the music and fashion world. In with creative elites of all stripes, they have worked with designer Philip Lim and have posed alongside street It boy Luka Sabbat. They've been plenty involved in music world too, working on Theophilus London's sophomore album release to curating music for high fashion nightlife events and DJ-ing at immense block parties for Fool's Gold Records.
Now, AMS is ready to emerge with their own original content. The crews first official single, "Places," seduces with vibrating synths, layers of airy vocals, and a booming rat-a-tat beat. The track almost immediately coaxes us into a hazy trance.
"Amsterdam our hometown consists of many different cultures who all bring their own sound to the city, so we took inspiration from many different styles," AMS wrote The FADER in an email. "This specific song was mostly inspired by our continuous travels around the world.
Expecting to release their debut album early this year, AMS explained: "We had the luxury of being exposed to so many different styles of music that all played an important role in the sound we have today. We like to release tracks whenever we feel like, not limited to a specific style."
Listen to "Places" below, and keep an eye out for their debut later this year.
