Oakland, CA-based producer and DJ Amplive has put together a Radiohead remix album entitled Rainydayz Remixes, available in digital-only format on January 10 and free to anyone that took the time to download the band’s original and highly publicized In Rainbows album.
From a recent press release:
"Unlike In Rainbows, Rainydayz Remixes has a set price: FREE. The digital-only collection will be available as a zip file including 320kbps MP3s, and hi-res artwork. But there's a small catch. If you bought In Rainbows, you'll most likely remember receiving an email or three from W.A.S.T.E, Radiohead's web store, which handled the administration of the band's digital-only, pay-what-you-want model. Well, the only way to receive a copy of Raindayz Remixes is to forward an email from W.A.S.T.E. to firstname.lastname@example.org, proving participation in the band's revolutionary approach to releasing their new record."
Delivery methods aside, the remix album is shaping up to be as exciting as the original release, with contributions from Too $hort, Zion, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, and others. And if Amplive’s version of "Weird Flashes," which we’ve had a listen to, is any indication, Rainydayz Remixes goes above and beyond your average remix album, and that's definitely worth the extra time.
Stay tuned for further details and a complete tracklisting...
