Grammy Award Winning Producer RAC Shares With Us His Lucky 7 Tracks
RAC has an ear for good music no matter what the genre.
The eclectic producer took home the golden gramophone this last February for Best Remixed Recording for his original spin on Bob Moses' successful track "Tearing Me Up." As the founder of RAC, otherwise known as Remix Artist Collective, André Allen Anjos has put his magic touch on more than 200 remixes for some of the most sought after artists in the biz. From Chromeo to Kings of Leon, Lana del Rey to Lady Gaga, RAC is the go to producer for tight, innovative remixes.
After a recent performance at Corona Sunsets in a natural fresh water cenote in the gorgeous beach town of Tulum, Mexico, RAC shared with us seven lucky tracks that have had a significant impact on him.
The track you want to play at your funeral.
RAC: The Rolling Stones - You Can’t Always Get What You Want
Your guilty pleasure.
Not so guilty, but I love Third Eye Blind.
The most underrated track.
Ryuichi Sakamoto - Bibo No Aozora
The remix you wish you had done.
I turned down a Vampire Weekend remix in 2008 because the budget wasn’t high enough. I probably should have done that.
The one remix that is so much better than the original.
Music is so subjective so it’s hard to say that one thing is better than the rest but I’m a huge fan of Cornelius’ remix work.
Blur - Tender (Cornelius Remix)
Your mom’s favorite track.
Simon & Garfunkel - Sound of Silence
The ultimate sunset track.
Aphex Twin - Avril 14th
Born and bred with the Detroit techno scene, I pledge my allegiance to the underground.
