RAC to release new compilation and tour

RAC will kick off their ten day long Endless Summer Tour on November 8 in Costa Mesa, CA with three of the most sought after names in Indie Dance: Classixx, Cosmic Kids, and Jerome LOL.  The four will be joining forces to co-headline a series of tour dates (presented by Red Bull Music Academy) up and down the west coast of North America this Fall.

There has been an emergence of underground dance parties where the lo-fi sounds of Indie Music has blurred the lines with the upbeat sing-along vocals of Pop.  A movement has developed around this feel good sound thanks to singles like RAC's "Hollywood", Classixx's "I'll Get You", and LOL Boys "Changes".  Songs that conjure memories of summer, they take you to a place that is nostalgic and warm.

RAC releases a new compilation RAC – CHAPTER 1 with RAC Records on November 6.  The album is a collection of their “best of” remixes from 2008 until now.  It will be available as a full download (1 mix) and most tracks will be available as single downloads. RAC – CHAPTER 1 will also include the exclusive RAC mix of Classixx’s “Stranger Love”.

RAC (pronounced Ar-Ay-Cee) have been reinventing the art of remixing and gathering widespread acclaim since the collective's creation in 2007.  Andre Anjos of 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.  The newest expansion of the RAC family is RAC DJs, a creative teaming of Andre Anjos and Karl Kling.  With this, RAC takes its remix theory to the booth, altering and combining tracks on the fly, to create an engaging soundscape fed by crowd energy and live interaction.
