RAC, short for the Remix Artist Collective, (formed in 2007) is the solo indie-electronic outlet of André Allen Anjos, a Portuguese-born producer and multi-instrumentalist now based in Portland, Oregon, U.S.

With the assistance of Aaron Jasinski, Chris Crookham, Andrew Maury and Karl Kling, Anjos formed RAC as a project designed to revision and reincarnate the songs of many highly esteem indie artists. Having studied piano and guitar in his native Portugal, Anjos moved to the States to study music business at Illinois’ Greenville College. Key to the approach was not to simply add a heavy, monotonous dance beat, but reinvent the songs, as was clear with RAC’s debut remix of the Shins’ “Sleeping Lessons”, which later appeared on the B-side of the band’s single.

As a result Anjos earned remix collaborations with Surfer Blood, Foster the People and Bloc Party amongst a whole host of other revered artists and bands. Subsequently, the music blog and website Stereogum released a handful of RAC et al.’s remixes to date, propelling the producer to online stardom. 2012 marked Anjos’ first release of original material with the EP “Nintendo vs. Sega” led by the single “Hollywood”. Following the EP, RAC signed with Cherrytree Records, and released the “Don’t Talk To” EP, which again featured “Hollywood” and the additional track “Let Go”.

In 2014 RAC released a pair of full-length albums titled “Strangers Part 1” and unsurprisngly “Strangers Part 2”, featuring collaboration with YACHT, Katie Herzig, Kele & MNDR, Tegan and Sara and Tokyo Police Club among others.

Big Data
BIG DATA is a paranoid electronic music project from the Internet, formed out of a general distrust for technology and The Cloud (despite a growing dependence on them). Helmed by producer, ALAN WILKIS, Big Data aims to explore the relationship between man and machine, and how the internet has reshaped the human experience.
