“Houdini” – Foster the People (RAC Mix)

Foster the People’s debut album “Torches” is all that you could ask for in a summer, indie pop album.  It’s undeniably catchy, fun, and easy to listen to.   They remind me of an accessible and less eccentric Empire of the Sun (read they probably won’t have dancing swordfish ladies on stage).  RAC, otherwise known as Remix Artist Collective, do just that, make really awesome remixes.  They’ve taken “Houdini” from a straight up pop song and given it a bit of edge and drama.  The track starts out with a rapid keys line that’s quickly joined by the fluttering bass.  We’re joined by the largely untouched vocals and slightly groovy clap.  The sample picks up where the tension starts to build in the synth.  The track erupts into the hyped-up chorus for a full on party.  A small break in the bridge and gospel-like vocals further add to the tension and take the track out.
