Regan here from SiriusXM Alt Nation with the new artist to watch this week: RAC. He’s a remixer/producer extraordinaire-turned-song crafter, and this is his new single “Let Go.”

Pronounced “R-A-C,” we’ve been into his remix work for some time, focusing on his killer remixes of alt-rock tracks – regulars on the set list of our weekly electro/remix show BoomBox Radio with DJ Liquid Todd! Now we have this “proper” song with a very cool vibe, from its smooth bass line and cool electro transitions to the flowing vocals of Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke and MNDR’s Amanda Warner.

“Let Go” sounds really sweet on the air, and I won’t be surprised if you end up hearing it in some sort of commercial, TV show or film since its hook sticks with you pretty instantaneously. The reaction I have gotten from our early airplay (started playing as soon as he posted it) has been really positive, and the single continues to sell more than 2,000 downloads a week without any major promotion or radio airplay, other than Alt Nation!

So there you go, we truly love being able to present new alternative music to our listeners and then step back and watch them connect with the artists and consume new tracks!
