In September with the release of another 'In Rainbows' track looming, Radiohead launched its second remix project of the year. The British quintet gave people the chance to remix, 'Reckoner'. Each of the song’s constituent parts, 'stems', were made available for download on iTunes and Garageband. The remixes would then be uploaded on a site and voted for by the public. Radiohead claiming that they 'would listen to the best remixes'.
As well as my entry, there were also some other very cool remixes submitted. However I don't feel they were fairly ranked on the radioheadremix site.
So to put a little bit of logic back into the universe I have put together my own 'Top 10' Radiohead Reckoner Remix list! Observe:
10. RECKONER, DE PLEIN FOUET. by ARTHUR LAVANDIER
9. WALKING RELIGION by THOMAS TATE
8. RECKORNER (YANN FRIPP REMIX) by YANN FRIPP
7. SAVE THE KIDS by FORCED MOVEMENT
6. REC.RMX by BITSLAVE
5. RECKONER (ISKRA STRING QUARTET MIX) by ISKRA STRING QUARTET
4. RECKONER (NOSAJ THING REMIX) by NOSAJ THING
3. RECKONER (THE ONE AM RADIO REMIX) by THE ONE AM RADIO
2. RECKONER (HOLDEN OFFICIAL REMIX) by JAMES HOLDEN
1. RECKONER (JULIANNA BARWICK MIX) by JULIANNA BARWICK
The whole experience was great fun, and I can now see how people would make a career out of this kind of thing. Julianna Barwick's remix is truly fantastic and I feel it deserves 1st place on my list. I came 66th out of 1664.
(a bad year for remixes, a good year for beer).
Other notable remixes are:
IT'S HARD TO CLEAR RADIOHEAD by ADAM BUXTON
CHART READY RECKONER by JAMES MERRIFIELD
Both of which are hilarious.
