Fresh off the high of a Grammy win for Best Remixed Recording of Bob Moses’ “Tearing Me Up,” remix maestro RAC, aka Andre Allen Anjos has released the first single off his forthcoming new album. CCP has supported Anjos’ original beats–such as the cheekily called single “Cheap Sunglasses” before–and the new one, “This Song” featuring Rostam, formerly of Vampire Weekend is equally sportive. Kaleidoscopic synths dance around Rostam’s delectable vocals with élan on the effervescent new effort.
Speaking on the significance of the track, Anjos says: “‘This Song’ is special to me because it falls around the 10 year anniversary of starting RAC in my dorm room. It’s been quite the ride and I never thought I’d be where I am today.”
It’s fair to say that Anjos has come a long way since those days, in no small part due to his innovative approach to remixes and diligent hard work. The follow up to his debut Strangers (2014), RAC’s sophomore effort is slated to release this summer via Counter Records.
