Check out Anjos' most recent video for “I Still Wanna Know”. The song features vocals and a guitar solo from Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo as well as additional production by Classixx.

Recorded between Anjos’ home studio in Portland and sessions in Los Angeles, EGOfeatures collaborations with Cuomo, Rostam, MNDR, St. Lucia, K. Flay and Joywaveamong others. EGO is Anjos’ most ambitious, cohesive and personal work to date and chronicles his organic progression as an artist. “The word ‘ego’ can have a negative connotation, but I think of it as an exploration of self,” he explains. “The album is really me figuring out what I personally wanted; I felt free to do whatever.”
 
Born and raised in Portugal, Anjos studied piano and guitar in his teens and played in local bands. He moved to the U.S. to study music business at Greenville College in Illinois before settling in Portland, OR. Anjos founded RAC while in his college dorm and has since gained an audience creating remixes for Lana Del Rey, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ellie Goulding, Foster the People, Phoenix, Imagine Dragons, Two Door Cinema Club, The Shins and label mates ODESZA, among many others. Anjos received his first Grammy nomination in 2016 for his remix of ODESZA’s “Say My Name” and this past year won a Grammy for Best Remixed Recording of Bob Moses’ “Tearing Me Up,” making him the first Portuguese artist to win a Grammy.
 
RAC began releasing original music with his first song “Hollywood” via Green Label Sound in 2012. Anjos quickly proved himself as a songwriter with his debut album Strangers(2014), which contains the singles “Let Go,” featuring Bloc Party’s Kele & MNDR and “Cheap Sunglasses” featuring Matthew Koma. Anjos has made major festival appearances at Coachella, Electric Zoo, Bumbershoot and Lollapalooza.
