Song: Hollywood (feat. Penguin Prison)
Artist: RAC
Album: Hollywood

RAC, or the "Remix Artist Collective" are a group of remixers with goals beyond "Club Music."  They currently have three members, and formerly two.  Andre Allen Anjos, whom resides in Portland is the founder and most active member of RAC.  Other current members include Karl Kling, also of Portland, and Andrew Maury of Brooklyn.

They have been described...

"Unlike many electronic remixes, which are commonly technical and precise, RAC mixes embody a unique aesthetic based around emotion and nuance, an almost intangible warmth and innate playfulness."


"Hollywood," aside from being a killer track, is notable in the RAC story as it's the first original track they've done.  Written and produced by Anjos along with Penguin Prison's Chris Glover (who does vocal duties) "Hollywood" was released in May of last year.  How did I miss this?

RAC have remixed Lana's "Blue Jeans," Gossip's "Heavy Cross" and "Perfect World," as well as for the likes of Bloc Party, Phantogram, Chromeo, Ra Ra Riot, and U2 amongst others.
