Silent Rider, a downtempo producer from Brooklyn has recently released two Radiohead remixes. Both the tracks, Nude and Reckoner are taken from Radiohead’s 2007 album ‘In Rainbows’. Silent Rider has been featured on Indie Music Finds previously with the video to his track I Was a Bomb last year.
The Radiohead Remixes are being given away as free downloads through Silent Rider’s Soundcloud (see above) and through Silent Rider’s own website here.
‘Other People’s Toys’ is a 5 track EP released two months after Special Benny’s debut album Toys. It features some unique remixes of tracks taken from this album by the likes of ‘Specialist’ and Johnny Beverton.
The reason I think this EP is worthy of a feature is because these artists have done what any good remixers should, they’ve made the song their own. You can really hear their own unique musical stylings in each of these tracks from Hong Kong In The 60′s stripped out (almost MIDIish), yet detailed, wistful sound emanating through in ‘Air Filter’ to ‘Shooting Horses’ big beat, somewhat tropical feel being applied to ‘Croydon’, a song with an entirely different time signature to the original. It’s easy to see that a lot more work has gone into these remixes than someone sampling away with their computer in a bedroom one evening as we’re so often seeing at the moment.
It’s taken me a while to get around to this one (released 22nd November 2010) but it’s still an awesome remix EP and it’s still free to download at 320kbps from bandcamp.
With the King Felix EP released in April and now this remix, Laurel Halo is still very much active in a scene of her own. In keeping the tightly bound sound of BRAHMS’ whilst adding her own unique, transdimensional qualities to the music, this track has the perfect balance all remixes should have but very rarely do. I’m sure we can expect to see a lot more from both BRAHMS and Laurel Halo in the future.
Below, the video to Laurel Halo‘s remix of BRAHMS’ Another Time.
The Eraser Remixes is a 9 track album of remixes from the 2006 album, ‘The Eraser’ by Thom Yorke of Radiohead. It features a remix of all the tracks apart from the title track and two remixes of Black Swan.
A lot of dubstep traits can be heard in this album and this goes well with Thom Yorke’s already distinct musical and vocal style.
The album can be downloaded through torrent from The Pirate Bay at 320kbps. I’m putting this here because his solo stuff always seems to be very overpriced.
At the bottom are three tracks from the album and here’s the video for the Atoms for Peace (Four Tet Remix)
Indie Music Finds was started in April 2009 as a place for people to find something new. I try and keep it quite diverse so rummage around a bit and I’m sure you’ll find something you like to take away with you.
