Today on Seattle’s KEXP 90.3, a new remix of SBTRKT‘s “Hold On” was premiered, supposedly created by someone named “Sisi BakBak.” However, after a little sleuthing, it appears that Sisi BakBak may in fact be Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, due to a comment made by KEXP DJ Cheryl Waters regarding the evasive remixer’s plans to play Seattle’s Key Arena in the near future. Mysterious pseudonyms, Thom Yorke, AND SBTRKT all wrapped into one? We’re all ears.
Here’s the remix, accompanied by a video directed by Sam Pilling:
Follow up to our sounds of the Astral Plane with MF DOOM and Dave Sitek. Tenth year anniversary for Lex Records means multiple collaborations with MF DOOM! For the anniversary, the label is set on releasing a compilation called Complex. DOOM is featured on two tracks, Retarded Fren and Rhymin Slang, the latter is my favorite. You may have already heard DOOMs track, Retarded Fren, with Thom Yorke of Radiohead and Jonny Greenwood. I wasn’t all to impressed by this combination of two stellar artists and it had a whole lot of potential. This is just my opinion on the track, I think DOOMs bars leave the listener asking for more because of his slow delivery throughout the track.
I think both artists individually are phenomenal, Thom Yorkes production and sampling of Proven Lands by Jonny Greenwod is great but we dont see the best that both of these artists can put out.
DOOM is also on another track that was recently released, produced by Jneiro Jarel called Rhymin Slang. The song is remixed by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek to bring out a heavy hitting cut. The bass comes through hard and the British MC, DELS, is also featured.
