RAC's very first original Hollywood , featuring Penguin Prison, has seen nothing but success and love since it's release in the early summer. The two remixes of it since, from The Magician and Felix Da Housecat, have only further solidified it as one of best releases of the year for us so far. And now, being the awesome dudes they are, André Allen Anjos & Chris Glover have tapped three more of their favorite remixers to work their magic on the track. While both Escort and Treasure Fingers did their thing on their great interpretations of the [...]
It's been a long 5 months since RAC premiered their first original production with vocals from Penguin Prison. "Hollywood" made an instant impact in the indie dance blogging community and, in fact, I just saw Penguin Prison perform it live at Virgin Mobile Freefest last Saturday in Columbia, MD. The overall catchiness and rhythm of [...]
Aslen Porto, Portekizli olan Portland, US'de yerleşik Andre Allen Anjos'nun kurucusu olduğu ve yaptığı remixlerle tanınan RAC'nin (Ar-Ay-Cee) ilk original çalışması olan Hollywod ile yaklaşık altı ay önce tanışmıştık. Arkasından The Magician ve Felix Da Housecat bu güzel original çalışmaya beklendiği gibi çok başarılı birer remix yapmışlardı. Green Label Sound tarafından çıkarılan "Hollywood Remix Bundle" [...]
Just stumbled across this in my nightly stroll through the internet. It's a groovy little ditty that'll put some pep in your step. (Okay, seriously that last line was real cheesy, Im not sure how to write about what Im posting just yet. You'll listen to it and make your own conclusions. Enjoy.) RAC - Hollywood feat. Penguin Prison (Cassian Remix) (320 kbps)
So, managing to double-post The Magician's (granted, very good) remix of RAC and Penguin Prison 's "Hollywood" just days after Jonny posted it, meant a proper bollocking, a demotion and docking of a weeks pay. Ok, not really, but to get back on the horse I'm crossing my fingers and throw up three other very good remixes of the same song by Cassian , Treasure Fingers and Escort .
The remixes of RAC's first original single "Hollywood", released on Green Label Sound back in May, continue to roll in. This time around we have another bunch of tasty remixes by the like of Cassian, Treasure Fingers, and Escort. Sydney's Cassian take on "Hollywood" is seriously good. Download it below. Also, you can grab the whole package for free here . Download here [...]
RAC got some of his favorite remixers to take a crack at “Hollywood”. André Allen Anjos, the mastermind behind RAC, says: “After being on the other side for so long, this is incredibly rewarding. I really hope you like them!” Grab 2 of my favorite below, & head over to RAC’s soundcloud for the rest. Hollywood (Treasure Fingers Hypnotic dub) // download Hollywood (Cassian remix) // download
So, how does a combo made up of RAC , Penguin Prison and The Magician sound like? Very good, obviously. And being free download doesn't hurt either. Speaking of RAC and give away remixes, his retro funky take on Mayer Hawthorne is great too:
This is going to be an experience. Bands from 25 countries all around the world come together in musical harmony. It's going to be four unforgettable days. There are going to be headliners like Of Montreal and The Wombats, but we will also get a taste of some truly incredible up and comers like The Big Pink and Penguin Prison. Then there are going to be artists that we haven't even had to chance to hear yet, that could possibly get our earz wet. Yes, that was suppose rhyme. That being said, we are giving away 2 Free Wristbands to [...]
Some say that Genghis Khan, in his relentless domination of Asia and its women, fathered something like 1000 children. Impressive, but not for his indefatigability. These children were so genetically superior to their peers, so able to thrive where others died off, that supposedly one in 200 men alive today is a direct descendent of Genghis. In this way, RAC are like the Genghis Khan of music, having their way with every song worth a second listen while on the road to total sovereignty over the remix world. But again, it's not their sheer prolificacy that [...]
"I'm not your friend anymore" I heard this song the other day and said to myself: "that voice sounds very familiar." I was very pleased that I could accurately peg the vocals as Penguin Prison's before I actually learned the song title/details. Hollywood is the result of awesome production by RAC (André Allen Anjos & Chris Glover, from my birth town of Portland, Oregon) and the aforementioned PP vocals. It is, from first listen, an amazingly catchy slice of retro synth pop. I mean... that chorus! It's good to have Penguin Prison back in [...]
So far, this year has been one of the best for remixes, making this list no easy feat. Speaking of feet, you should warm them up because they will moving in a second... (Artwork pattern drawn by a Lego Turntable robot ) 25. Toby Keith - Red Solo Cup (It's The DJ Kue Remix!) / And suddenly Toby Keith is not only palatable but highly listenable. 24. Y Luv - Never Touch The Ground (Gazzo Remix) / It's pretty impossible to improve on the original so taking it in a different direction was a wise [...]
On 6/28, Neon Gold and The Chuckness linked up to put together the debut of Popshop Boston, featuring RAC, Penguin Prison and Carousel. I'd do a detailed write-up on it, but I think the video above says way more than I ever could. Huge thanks to everyone for coming out - you'll be seeing some more shows from us down the line. Shout out to Alex for filming and editing the dynamite recap video. Tweet

After years of remixing the music of other artists, RAC made waves a couple of months ago with the release of his first official song " Hollywood ," which featured the vocals of Penguin Prison 's Chris Glover. Other artists have now taken to remixing RAC's work. Last month, Belgian DJ The Magician remixed the track , and yesterday marked the official release of Felix da Housecat's remix of "Hollywood." The famed DJ turns the track into a groovy six-and-a-half minute banger, one that's primed and ready for the clubs. Check it out below.
