RAC, Portugal’s sensational multi genre artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Newport Music Hall!
RAC is the solo musical project of DJ, producer, and multi instrumentalist André Allen Anjos. Born in Porto (Portugal), he began his musical journey by learning to play the piano and guitar. He went on to study music business at Illinois' Greenville College and founded the Remix Artist Collective (RAC) in 2007. He took a new approach to remixing by reinventing artists' songs instead of just superimposing dance beats on them. His musical style is best described as a blend of alternative dance (a genre that blends the melodic song structure of alternative and indie rock with electronic beats, synths and/or samples, and club orientation of post disco dance music), electronica (an umbrella term that encompasses a broad group of electronic based styles such as techno, house, ambient, drum and bass, jungle, and industrial dance, among others), and indie rock (a genre of alternative rock that originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1980s, encapsulating the genres chamber pop, indie pop, lo fi, math rock, neo psychedelia, post punk revival, sadcore, and shoegazing), indie electronic (a subgenre of alternative/indie rock with affinity for electronic music, using samplers, synthesizers, drum machines, and computer programs), and pop. He’s had a stellar career with 4 studio albums and a Grammy Award (for Best Remix Recording). His latest album (EGO) comes out on 14th July 2017.
