When Tycho‘s “Pink & Blue” was first released, fans welcomed the contemplative tune and its silky vocals courtesy of Saint Sinner. The San Francisco-based musician had in the past focused mainly on instrumentals and composition, and the majority of his work didn’t include vocals.

This took a turn with Tycho’s fifth studio album, Weather, which debuted in July. He tapped songstress Saint Sinner for five of its eight tracks, instating a new chapter in his discography. This seems to have resonated with esteemed producer RAC, who lends his creative touch to a new official remix of “Pink & Blue.”

RAC’s interpretation of “Pink & Blue” sees the song take on a more pop-oriented, lighthearted atmosphere. It’s a brighter, breezier take on the tune, giving listeners the chance to absorb all three artists’ creativity in a new way. See what RAC said about this opportunity below.

RAC tickles the ivories on new ‘Closer’ EP

2019 sees Grammy-winning Portuguese artist RAC taking a new direction.

In his first release of the year, RAC has gone a classical route by composing a four-track piano-centric EP. He originally created the body of music for the Oregon Ballet Theatre, having developed an interest in the company after attending performances with his wife in 2017. The producer worked with four different choreographers to write something specifically for each of them (hence the track names), and the final product is a beautifully emotive compilation, making its widespread debut on Counter Records March 12.

“It was quite liberating to throw away every songwriting convention and write something purely emotional,” RAC said in a release. “Writing for ballet has its own set of challenges, but after years of writing pop songs, it was so much fun to try something so different.”

This EP follows a slew of wide-ranging releases for RAC in 2018, including remixes of Gordi‘s “We Can Work It Out,” Lemaitre‘s “Rocket Girl,” and Billy Idol‘s “Dancing with Myself,” along with a collaboration with Mat Kearney in March.

Sunday Morning Medicine Vol 167, with Lane 8, Vincent, RAC, + moreSMM 2400

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.


Like a lucid dream, Robotaki‘s latest, “Meant To Be,” swirls and struts through the consciousness with its Tame Impala/Daft Punk-esque psychedelia/synth-wave. Start your Sunday on the right side of Robotaki’s ultraviolet fantasy.

Lane 8 introduces some pensive splendor to Virtual Self‘s sweeping smash, “Ghost Voices,” and the result is a rousing, subtly danceable sonic sonnet.

RAC lends furrowing keys and blooming builds to an already-idyllic Giraffage offering. “Maybes” stands for sweet, swimming possibility this Sunday.

From his latest EP, Vincent‘s “I’m No Magician” is the sensual savor we all crave for end-of-weekend dopamine replenishment. Love, Alexa’s pulsing vocal chops and Vincent’s throbbing bass hit like a beckoning Sunday strobe light.

Arriving from Lee Burridge‘s All Day I Dream imprint, Sébastien Léger’s “Rocket To Lee’s Little Cloud” is the quixotic vessel you ordered to deliver from intrusive thoughts of the upcoming work week. With its chugging beat wistful, reverberating synth line, swift escape is imminent.

RAC elevates LCAW’s ‘Desires’ with delightfully moving rework

This post was originally published on this site

Each and every artistic endeavor by way of the indie electronica maestro RAC is delightfully groovy, ridden with emotion, and daringly danceable. Over the years, the Grammy-winning artist has proven his tantalizing talents over a breadth of tunes, from indie dance to disco, RAC puts a masterful touch on all that he embraces. Now, RAC’s remixed LCAW’s rousing original “Desires,” featuring the legendary Danish electronic trio WhoMadeWho.

Evidently, the two share an affinity for initial-lead monikers, but RAC proves with the rework that the two’s mutual love for invigorating instrumentals is omnipresent. LCAW, or Leon Weber, has been developing his artistic portfolio over the years, boasting remixes for the likes of London Grammar, ZHU, and more. His original “Desires” takes its listeners on a tantalizing journey beyond the looming winter season, to a dreamy world of sun-drenched sound.  While LCAW’s version is a delightful testament to their rightful presence in the realm, RAC’s rework is a masterful deliverance that leaves its listener with an insatiable desire for more from these two acts.

Giraffage – Maybes ft Japanese Breakfast (RAC Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Less than two months after its release, Giraffage has followed up his debut Too Real album with a set of remixes.

The five-track set includes a blissfully mellow rework of “Maybes” from Grammy-winning artist RAC. He’s taken the minimalist track and given it a bit more of a dance backbone. Though it’s still true to its delicate roots, RAC is able to seamlessly morph “Maybes” into a smooth-flowing remix that accentuates Japanese Breakfast‘s vocals and pays homage to Giraffage’s well-crafted original.

Other remixes of Too Real include “Green Tea” remixes from Carpainter and Onra, another “Maybes” remix from Masayoshi Iimori, and a “Slowly” remix from Hiko Momoji. The set of remixes is out Dec. 5.
