Holy Ghost! "Static on the Wire (RAC Remix)"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
We were jamming this electro-flavored remix of NYC duo Holy Ghost! all weekend long. And when we say electro, we don't mean idiotic nu-rave, we mean delightful synths, vintage claps, and bright melodies, all courtesy of the mysterious RAC (a.k.a. Remix Artist Collective). Admittedly, we're a little creeped out by the RAC website, which reads like some kind of lifestyle marketing nightmare and seems to offer professional remixing services on demand. Sample quote: "We aim to maintain a style of remixing that strays from the 'club mix' archetype, creating new incarnations of songs that stem from the original structure, but expand on their genre and musical arrangement. RAC mixes typically feature a unique blend of hip-hop and electro drum samples, analog synthesizers, melodic hooks, and original performed instrumentation." Um, yikes? Can we just pretend that we never saw that? For all we know, this remix was made with the assistance of an "urban tastemaker" focus group. Sadly, it TOTALLY WORKED, cuz we're still loving this version.
