RAC (pictured) got the summer going with his feel-good anthem Cheap Sunglasses, and now he’s enlisted the help of a few friends to help him finish it off right with the release of the track’s remix EP.

Amtrac transforms the track into a fiery deep house tune in his remix, adding an energetic bassline and looping vocals to change the easy poolside jam into a sleek, warehouse-ready banger. The beach vibes are plenty in tropical beat master Viceroy’s remix. The Bay Area producer revamps the track using funky synths and playful percussion, giving the tune a fresh coat of easy California groove.

Never one to disappoint in the remix department, Los Angeles producer Le Youth takes RAC’s mellow tune and increases the tempo with a beat full of silky percussion and his signature bouncy synths. Things get particularly fun just before the track’s three-minute mark, when the beat slows to nothing but piano chords and then builds to a wave of smooth bass and choppy vocals.

The Cheap Sunglasses Remixes EP also includes spins from The Knocks, Two Friends, Dave Aude, and ShadowLuxx. Pick it up on Beatport here.
