If you’re into remixes/electronic/dance kind of music, you’ve probably heard some of the Remix Artist Collective’s stuff. Also known as RAC, this group of international artists, producers, mixers etc. get together to create really awesome, unique mixes of a wide range of musical genres.
The RAC Wikipedia post sums them up pretty well: “RAC strives to maintain a style of remixing that strays from the “club mix” archetype, creating new incarnations of songs that stem from the original structure, but expand on their genre and musical arrangement. RAC mixes typically feature a unique blend of hip-hop and vintage drum machine samples, analog, analog synthesizers, melodic hooks, and original performed instrumentation by the remix artists themselves. ‘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.'”
Check out their website here and listen to some of my favorites below (sorry for any repeat posts, but I love lots of these songs so much they deserve to get blogged about TWICE!) PS – if you don’t have any of the original songs being remixed, they’re all worth download as well.
