Lying To You (RAC Mix)
Josh Legg’s bedroom recording project turned full-fledged live troupe, Goldroom, has been a mainstay for years here at TMN. His brand of syrupy-slick, dancefloor-directed electro-pop has captured the hearts (and ears for that matter) of listeners from a plethora of genres. Whether it’s the indie archetypes, bubblegum pop consumers, or underground dance fans; Goldroom’s sounds has a resonation that few “dance” acts could dream of achieving. No doubt part of that luster and allure comes from the seemingly endless malleability of a Goldroom tune. Legg’s polished singles can be flipped, chopped and beefed up in so many different directions; and they have been as well. On the heels of a debut long player, West of the West, and accompanying national tour with Autograf (tour dates are listed below), Goldroom’s “Lying To You” has been scooped up by another one of our favorite producers, Andre Allen Anjos -better known to the world simply as RAC.
With similar yet opposing structural aesthetics, RAC remains true to the essence of Goldroom’s original recording, but whereas its counterpart is a slow-burning slice of 80’s nostalgia with a contemporary vocal, Anjos minimalizes his approach even further using a rolling synth punch and flitty pad work to make his mark. We’re big fans of both, but a fresh coat of RAC wax on a tune always stokes our fancy. Listen to RAC’s remix above, and check out the dates for Autograf & Goldroom’s tour below.
