"Octopus" - Bloc Party (RAC Mix)

 

There are many overlooked forms of electronic music that diverge from the typical, mainstream club/festival archetype. Founded by André Allen AnjosRAC (Remix Artist Collective) is a multi-function group which strives to deviate from the EDM norms. RAC had their official remix of "Octopus" published not even a week after Bloc Party had their official release of the original track. The remix is extremely tasteful and expands on Bloc Party’s signature track composition with its use of electro drum samples, synth melodies, electric guitar builds, and many of the original instruments.

Not only does RAC get tasked with remixing, but they are also on the forefront for recording and songwriting directed towards the film, TV, advertising & gaming industries. Notable television clients include Entourage and How To Make It In AmericaHBO being reputable for their great music licensing under the supervision of Scott Vener. RAC is only one of many examples where dance music is starting to assimilate in what have been untouched markets so far - so be on the lookout!
