Delorean – Stay Close (RAC Mix)

Andre Anjos, the Portuguese beatmestre behind the Remix Artist Collective (RAC), just released the fourth track off his upcoming remix album, RAC Vol 2, which drops tomorrow. Today’s remix comes by way of one of my favorite Spanish bands, or just bands in general, Barcelona’s Delorean. The remix takes the original dreamy, sun-soaked song and turns the jam into a total dance party, just like when I saw them play in Brooklyn back in November. That show, like this remix, was insane. I don’t know if this remix is gonna make keyboardist Unai Lazcano knock over his synth and dive off the stage (nobody caught him!), but it definitely brings back memories of that sweaty night. Check out the six and a half minute JAM below. I can’t wait to head off to sunny Barcelona on Sunday!

Anamanaguchi – Airbrushed (RAC Mix)

8-bit is crazy. New York’s Anamanaguchi is crazy. Making music from tricked out Nintendos is brilliant. Sometimes boarding on hyperactive, it can easily get unruly, but the steady hand of Andre Anjos and RAC keep this four-minute instrumental classy. ‘Airbrushed’ gets the RAC airbrushing and it best be glad for it. Check it.

Ra Ra Riot - Boy (RAC Mix)

boy On Tuesday August 24th, six-piece orchestral indie rock outfit Ra Ra Riot will follow up their 2008 debut LP The Rhumb Line (2008) with The Orchard. Last month the band released the Boy EP as a precursor of what’s to come. And to show their appreciation for all the downloads and approbatory reviews, they are giving away a brilliant remix of the track ‘Boy,’ courtesy of the mix mestre himself, RAC's Andre Anjos. The Portland-based remixer has a long list of stunningly exquisite renditions of mainly indie rock tunes, but his jazzy, funk-beat take on 'Boy' is sold gold. Andre starts off by building a subtle dreamscape out of Wes Miles' melodic vocal on top of Alexandra Lawn's and Rebecca Zeller's supple strings. He then slices up the bass-drum, which is ever-present in the original, adding a catchy, foot-tapping beat that runs through most of the four minute remix. In short, like all of RAC's work, this remix is a snazzy energetic, electronic-enhanced reworking which is probably better than the original. Check out the mp3 below.

RAC: The Remix Artist Collective

Bloc Party, The Temper Trap, Tokyo Police Club, Kings of Leon and Phoenix— we’ve all heard those names before, but André Allen Anjos, Andrew Maury and Crookram (Chris Angelovski)— perhaps not. The three make up the Portuguese/American/Dutch remixing wizardry known as The Remix Artist Collective, or simply as RAC. Together they have released three free albums: RAC Sega Vs. Nintendo EP, RAC Vol. 1, and RAC VOL 1.5. Check out a full list of their remixes. Some of RAC’s music has appeared on HBO’s Entourage so you know they’re legit. Here’s a few of my favourites:

The Shins - ‘Sleeping Lessons (RAC Remix)’

Kings Of Leon - ‘Use Somebody (RAC Remix)’

Phoenix - ‘1901 (RAC Maury Mix)

The Temper Trap - ‘Sweet Disposition (RAC Mix)

Honeythieves - ‘Reminder (RAC Mix)’

The Pragmatic - ‘Circles (RAC Maury Mix)’

Bloc Party - Hunting For Witches (RAC Mix)’

Tokyo Police Club - ‘Graves (RAC Maury Mix)’
