RAC mixes: Remix Artist Collective

It's not often I come across a consistently enjoyable remix artist, but RAC brings more to the table than your average techno/electro artist. They say it better than I could:

We provide re-interpretations/remixes of individual songs for artists/labels. Above all, we strive for excellence and good taste regardless of genre. We aim 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 electro drum samples, analog synthesizers, melodic hooks, and original performed instrumentation. Listen to our portfolio, get an idea of what we do, and shoot some ideas through us. We’ll make it work.Whatever their genre is, something about this style of music relaxes me. And considering the remix service RAC provides is non-profit for the most part, the fact that they still produce quality earns my respect. Making subtle changes while steering clear of intense beat drops and heavy dubsteps, RAC provides some uplifting listening for exam crunch time. Give these tracks a shot and if your feelin 'em, click here for a lengthy playlist on their official website.
