Stream RAC Strangers

RAC used to be known as the Remix Artists Collective, and Andre Allen Anjos’s project first came to internet fame for taking apart other people’s songs and putting them back together. More recently, though, Anjos has been making his own tracks, often with outside help. We’ve posted the Kele/MNDR collab “Let Go,” and his debut… More »
