Remixing at its very finest…
The Remix Artist Collective (RAC) is made up of three gents from around the world who share something in common, they love to put a new twist on an already great song. The group was started by André Allen Anjos, who at 25 has already done some amazing work, as well as for some amazing clients.
Over the years he has brought in a few other members to add to the arsenal, namely Andrew Maury, who toured with Ra Ra Riot and co-produced / engineered their latest album. Most recently, Anjos has added another name to the roster in Karl Kling, who will undoubtedly be adding a new flavor to the mix.
When you find their tracks, you will be able to differentiate who’s work it is by the tags: Anjos – (RAC Mix), Maury – (RAC Maury Mix) and Kling – (RAC Karl Kling Mix).
Be on the lookout for these guys, as their empire is steadily growing. I have included a few of Anjos’ tracks to wet your palate:
Ra Ra Riot – Boy (RAC Mix)
Hockey – Too Fake (RAC Mix)
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Home (RAC Mix)
Prepare your ears for a treat.
Discovery is the love child of Rostam Batmanglij, the keyboardist from Vampire Weekend, and Wesley Miles, the vocalist from Ra Ra Riot. Their friendship and love for music collaborated to create the experimental funk/rnb group called Discovery.
With piano riffs and 80′s synths in what seems to be a crazy mash of beats that just work, Discovery has been one of those groups I never get sick of listening to. I met an American couple in Thailand last year who introduced me to them. We ended up traveling together and every time I got a chance, I’d be stealing Lisa’s ipod. 12 hour bus rides up to Bangkok were made that much easier by the discovery of Discovery!

This one is one of my favourites. He’s talking about meeting his brother, I believe, on the train line in Osaka Japan. Unfortunately his bro falls asleep and he has to watch him go round and round on the loop line at 2 am.
