Surprise, Surprise… Amplive Gets To Release His Radiohead Remix Project After All

You have to wonder what the hell was going through Amplive's mind when he decided to release a collection of hip-hop reinterpretations of Radiohead's In Rainbows without even contacting them. Blogs all over the world started salivating all over themselves after the Oakland-based producer offered a free download of his Rainydayz Remixes mini-album in exchange for a forwarded purchase confirmation from Radiohead's W.A.S.T.E. store. Drool quickly turned to spit when they learned that Radiohead were pulling the plug on the project. How dare they! Don't they know that Del The Funky Homosapien laid down some rhymes on it!

Turns out that the two artists (or, more likely, their respective management teams) have established an agreement which will give Amplive permission to release his In Rainbows remixes for free to everyone. Guess Radiohead do approve of Del's rhymes and Amplive's beats after all! Oh happy day!

The album is available by clicking on this long string of words, dots and slashes:

All sarcasm and futile attempts at wit aside, the disc is actually quite good, and also features collaborations with members of Jurassic 5 and Zion I. As they would say on Yo Gabba Gabba -- "Try it! You'll like it! Try it! You'll Like It!"
