Brooklyn-based SAVOY's rock edged, yet club-geared releases, along with their notoriously high energy live shows have spawned a hybrid dance culture of its own. In just under a year and a half, the live electro-house trio has made a name for itself by effectively bridging the gap between the concert venue rocker and the club-bangin' partier - and the result is a rapidly emerging new market that can't seem to get enough. In such a short period of time, SAVOY has truly established themselves as not only talented producers but as innovators of live electronic music.
Andre Anjos launched RAC while still a student at Greenville College, a small school of about 1,500 students in Southern Illinois, known primarily for its music program. "It was Thanksgiving break, 2006. I just started contacting people, and then for probably a good six months, trying to get some kind of remix job. I probably annoyed a lot of people." A study in persistence, he finally got the ear of The Shins' manager, who had never before been approached about a remix for the band, but was open to the idea. The subsequent "Sleeping Lessons" remix landed RAC a B-side on the band's UK single. "I was insanely lucky with that one," Anjos says of The Shins' gig. "I need to call them, and, like, thank them." Since that break, RAC has climbed the indie ranks and gone on to remix some of the biggest artists in the world, including Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kings of Leon, and U2. Anjos has also become a much sought-after score- and sync-man. He has remixed and produced original music for television (Entourage, 90210, How To Make It In America), film (soundtrack for 2010 Sundance selection Holy Rollers), and advertisements – even landing a Super Bowl ad. "It's gone beyond just remixes," Anjos says. "I'm doing all kinds of other things now."
RAC's debut original single, "Hollywood," featured vocalist Penguin Prison and was released in the spring of 2012 via the Mountain Dew curated record label, Green Label Sound. The track immediately took off, topping all four charts on Hype Machine at once, going to #1 on Elbo.ws and breaking all previous Green Label Sound download records in its first week. Likewise the cowboy-in-LA music video with a cameo by Quentin Tarantino muse Rose McGowan and two remix packages including yet another Hype Machine chart topper by The Magician kept RAC in the spotlight throughout the summer and fall.
RAC can currently be found preparing his debut artist album for release in 2013 as well as a compilation of greatest remix hits from the last four years entitled "RAC Chapter One" for release in November 2012.
