The King Of Limbs gets remixed, mashed-up with Jay-Z, and covered. Already.

Friday morning, mere hours after The King Of Limbs was released, reviews were already popping up all over the internet. Music critics and bloggers were keen to be among the first to get their opinions public about a record they’d spent a couple of hours with. Well, they’ve got nothing on these people. Songs from The King Of Limbs are already getting remixed and mashed-up with Jay-Z, while one band has even managed to release a cover record of the entire album.

First up, Swedish producer Mojib adds some vocal samples and slows down the piano-driven Codex:

Radiohead – Codex (Mojib Remix) by Mojib

Separator has also been remixed:

RADIOHEAD- Separator (Idol Eyes Extended Mantra Mix) by accraze

And once again someone out there has decided that Jay-Z and Radiohead are a great fit. This time around Little By Little has been mashed-up with Jay-Z’s American Gangster:

“Little Gangsta” Jay-Z/Radiohead by Fichenaffäre

And finally, Prefix Mag has pointed out that Los Angeles band Robotanists have covered the entirety of The King Of Limbs. Pretty quick turnaround on a record that we heard for the first time a few days ago. You can download the entire album here for free…or you could put The King Of Limbs on again.

It’s absolutely crazy how fast we consume, create, and distribute these days.

  • DAMN!

  • Nice try on the cover. But it pales in comparison to the original.

  • No not Gay-Z again…. stick with coldplay

  • The Codex remix is dull. The only interesting parts are from Codex, the rest is pollution…

  • Agreed ^. Codex is a fantastic song…I can’t really imagine anyone recording a good cover of it.

  • enjoying the tone of the recent updates adriaan – nice to hear your opinions on stuff.

    x

  • Is that shit being played over Codex even in the right key? It seems to make no audible sense to my ears

  • Oh god these three songs gargle balls.

  • This is stupid as fuck. ARGH

  • NO!!!!! why????

  • Who decided a redneck american guitar would sound good over codex, then some sigur ros glockenspiel, christ the lord

  • Definitely unnecessary !

  • REQUEST TO REMOVE POST PLEASE AT EASE

  • I am in complete agreement with Kevin. Whole ‘lotta ball garglin’.

  • DEAR AT EASE,

    PLEASE UNGARGLE THESE BALLS.

    Sincerely,

    Jon Lovitz

  • yes ATEASE please, ungargle!!….

    The day after the release of Sgt. Peppers in 1967, Jimi Hendrix covered the entire album during a gig. Interpretation of newly released music is not something new.

  • Oh dear… :(

  • @vlad – pretty sure he only covered Sgt Pepper the song, not the album. And it’s one thing to perform a cover and another to record and release it within 24 hours. That’s all I was getting at with that comment.

    @pyramidboy – ade didn’t write this one…i did. so thanks?

  • that jay-z remix seems pretty rushed and a bit of a poor job. i’m pretty amateur at that stuff myself, but seriously that would take me like maybe 10 minutes in ableton live to put together.

  • Agreed, James. They’re all rushed.

  • Band called the Robotanists cover the entire album in a 24 hours span. Quite an interesting result.

  • Corny!!! I hate when people do this stuff! It doesn’t even inspire any creative thoughts! Its like oh im bored. Radiohead came out with a new album, let’s mash it up! Leave it own. Mash up Kings of leon crap album instead of Kings of limb album.

    Oh Yeah Jay – Z is lame and I dont care how much money he has! Learn how to spit lyric’s mumble mouth!

  • OT: I still can’t get on the atease messageboard, is it still really down?

  • So if i get a mixer I can mash songs together and get CRAPPY results and websites will spread my garbage like these three piles?
    Wow. How easy is it to appear on websites?

  • @Sh4DoWX: The messageboard has been back for ages. Try again? Clear your cookies/cache?

  • i hope whoever did this so called mash up is reading this.
    feb. 18 was a great day to all music lovers. i mean real music lovers. good music. like radiohead. and kings of limbs is brilliant. how DARE you mix this brilliancy with a mainstream rapper!?!?!? like gay z or jay d or what everrr!!!!! so fucking annoying i hate things like that!!!!!!!!

    False. He didn’t play the entire album but the opening song. Which is still impressive since they only rehearsed a few minutes before the show when they found out Paul McCartney and George Harrison were in attendance.

  • Here is a vid of Hendrix’s performance of Sgt Pepper (not sure if its this precise gig):

  • Commenters calling Jay-Z “Gay-Z”……are you 12 years old?

  • i thought it was pretty clever myself.

  • A poem to you…

  • the robot band or whatever is awful. bad covers. if youre going to cover a song, make it your own, open it up to your own identity.

    god LA bands suck.

  • Any new news ATEASE?…

  • adriaan: Love to see the news getting updated. Bland news is better than no news. Would love to see a feature on what musicians think about it… we know flying lotus loved it by his tweets but that was a no brainer. Any other artists’ opinions?

  • Bad taste….in ma’mouth. Like grilled onions left out for a week.

    It sounds like these amateur DJs/musicians were trying to become the first to remix a Radiohead song just for the cred. None of this noise makes good hearty sense…musically.

    At Ease: This is not your fault. You’re keeping up, is all.

  • i love jay-z but I thought that mash-up was horrible

  • [...] already heard some unofficial remixes and now it seems as though it’s time for the unofficial videos. First [...]

  • It is a lack off respect to mix Jay-Z with a Radiohead song!!!!!
