Your Pop Alternative Source
Remix wiz and purveyor of “post-pop", RAC, aka Portuguese-born, Portland-based Andre Allen Anjos, is on the rise. He's topped Hype Machine 22 times and has reworked tracks by everyone from Radiohead and Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Lana Del Rey and Kings of Leon… even Bob Marley. He’s now a music-maker, too, with a debut EP to his name. Don't Talk To features originals written with Red Bull Tour Bus travellers Tokyo Police Club, Penguin Prison and Katie Herzig, and a standout track, Let Go, featuring Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke and MNDR. Meet the man who'll refix you if you're not careful.
When did you think: when I grow up I want to be a remixer?
“For a long time I wasn't interested in pursuing it professionally. I like design so I almost went to art school. That seemed like a reasonable career path. I continued to write and record but I only intended to make it a hobby. When I was 16 or 17 I had some minor musical successes locally, so I started to see that maybe there was something in it.“
