It’s no secret that Radiohead and Flying Lotus are big fans of each other. FlyLo has remixed Reckoner, Thom Yorke appeared on last year’s stunning Flying Lotus record Cosmogramma, and just last week Thom spun records with Flying Lotus at LA’s Low End Theory.
Perhaps it’s not that surprising then that Flying Lotus appears to be remixing the entirety of The King Of Limbs (or perhaps just a song?). According to an interview with Flying Lotus in the Colorado Springs Independent:
Indy: He was also on your last album. Are there any more collaborations like that in the works?
FL: Not that I know of. They wanted me to remix the new Radiohead record, and I’ve been trying to mess with that a little bit. But I haven’t gotten to it yet.
Indy: Tell us what that’ll sound like when you’re done with it?
FL: It’s too early to say, man. I have no fucking clue. It’s difficult to work with, because the pieces that they gave me, there’s no real a cappella. It’s like piano and voice at the same time.
Indy: So you can’t separate them.
FL: No, I can’t. So I have to come up with some shit that’s a little similar to the record, I guess, to an extent.
Hopefully this project sees the light of day at some point. But imagine Flying Lotus producing a Radiohead record? (No offense, Nigel.)
