A DOOM Remix By Radiohead’s Thom Yorke Has A Newly-Released Alternate Version (Audio)
The evasive villain DOOM (a/k/a MF DOOM) has lots of industry friends. He pops up with Ghostface Killah, Jay Electronica, Atmosphere, and De La Soul. However, folks beyond the confines of Hip-Hop are also fans of the MC. One prominent supporter and peer is Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.
Back on 2009’s Born Like This deluxe edition and corresponding maxi-single, the British vocalist, producer, and musician remixed “Gazillion Ear.” Dake Sitek of TV On The Radio did the same. What Heads are just now learning is that the Kid A co-creator made more than one mix to the song. This week, the label Lex Records released the other one. Fans of quirky sound effects, unpredictable production, and unconventional beats may dig this one.
Lex reportedly kept this mix, known as “Man On Fire” under wraps. However, Thom opted to dig in his own crates this week, while on the BBC spinning tracks.
Born Like This is the most recent DOOM solo album, over six years old. It is also remains the KMD front-man’s highest charting work.
