Okay, Radiohead’s my top favorite artist right now.. The Beatles just have to share the throne with them. Other than this impressively awesome Diplo remix of Reckoner (download it below), they have been letting their fans do remixes of their tracks.
There’s a Remix site going up tomorrow for Reckoner here
. To start things off we asked James Holden and Diplo to do their versions. Now the elements are already being passed around to other artists.. The elements of the song are soon going to be made available to you if you wanna have a go.. If it’s anything like the Nude remix site it could get fairly nuts. We’re off to Japan at the weekend.
Hear more of it at radioheadremix.com. The band posted in their site some further details on the project:
To coincide with asking radio stations to think about playing Reckoner we are breaking up the tune into pieces for you to remix.
After the insane response we got from the Nude remix stems and the site that was dedicated to your remixes…
Unique visitors: 6,193,776, Page Views: 29,090,134, Hits: 58,340,512, Bandwidth: 10.666 Terabytes, Number of mixes: 2,252, Number of votes: 461,090, Number of track listens: 1,745,304
…we thought it only fair to do the same with a tune that at least is in 4/4. You can get the stems (the different instruments/elements) from here.
Sample, cut, take the sounds, whatever. Play it in a club. Or your room. Then if you want you can upload your finished mixes to http://www.radioheadremix.com and be judged by everyone else. YOu can create a widget allowing votes from your own site, Facebook or MySpace to be sent through too.
Download the mp3s over at iTunes.
