Let RAC strike the chords.

Portland-based producer, RAC, takes Joe Goddard’s “Ordinary Madness” to extraordinary levels in his new mix. André Anjos, the mastermind behind RAC, sheds away the silent smoky ambiance of the original piece and seams it with graceful string strides. Adding his own rhythmic direction, RAC coats “Ordinary Madness” with strumming chords and electro flicks that takes you on a more concrete soundscape – it is soothing, but has a rare intensity to it. This is the type of exhilaratingly peaceful madness that you need:
