Radiohead are to follow the phenomenal success of the ‘Nude’ remix initiative by making samples of ‘Reckoner’ available online.
“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…we thought it only fair to do the same with a tune that at least is in 4/4,” a statement from the band read.
“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. To start things off we asked James Holden and Diplo to do their versions.”
The statement also revealed the figures behind the mixsite since its launch.
