Big thanks to my brother J for giving me the heads-up on Rainydayz Remixes > an 8 track EP of tracks remixed from the fab Radiohead album [in rainbows].
Just finished listening to it and its fab! Amp Live has really done justice to the tracks -- he has created some new music > predominately hip hop flavoured > that acknowledge their roots and take them into new directions.
While the Oakland producer/DJ acknowledges that he probably should have contacted Radiohead (who were not involved in the project) to seek approval prior to making his interpretations publically available, an agreement has been reached between all involved parties and Amplive has been granted permission to release Rainydayz Remixes for free to the general public. Effective immediately, the eight-track record is available here.Loving it... and Radiohead keep amazing me with their now-savvy approach to content / product and their fans. More great publicity for them and more great tunes for folk like me. Nice job!
Rainydayz Remixes is composed exclusively of source material pulled from In Rainbows, re-envisioned by Amplive and complimented by vocal work from Too $hort, MC Zumbi of Zion I, Chali2na of Jurassic 5, Codany Holiday, and Del The Funky Homosapien.
Check it out.
Here's a message from Amp Live himself... I love the power of the 'tinterweb!
