Oregon’s summer party-starter RAC (pictured) has been a busy boy lately–he’s delivered not one but two remixes, taking on ZZ Ward’s sassy funk groover Love 3X and HOLYCHILD’s seductive pop anthem Money All Around.
On the original version of Love 3X there is a tremendous horn-break that defines the production. However, for the remix, the horn is replaced with a piano and an extra crunch is added to the break. This gives Ward’s vocal a wholly different feel on a sensual jam that is a step in a different direction for RAC.
“In many ways this was new territory for me,” he revealed on Facebook. “The slower tempo and the type of beat were a lot of fun to play with. Ultimately it was about showcasing the phenomenal vocal.”
On the flip-side, HOLYCHILD, who recently met RAC during a show in LA–sees their synth-filled pop anthem Money All Around given an extra injection of attitude as vocalist Liz Nistico’s wailing vocal is chopped and artfully placed into the mix in order to give it a more swinging feel.
There is no word as to when the ZZ Ward remix will be made available for purchase, but do pre-order Ward’s album This Means War here. You can grab the HOLYCHILD remix for free here.
