After a cease & desist put the breaks on Amplive’s Radiohead In Rainbows remix project, the online music community reasonably wondered if the tracks would ever see the light of day. Today comes an answer: they most definitely will. While the Oakland producer/DJ acknowledges that he probably should have contacted Radiohead (who were not involved in the project) to seek approval prior to making his interpretations publicly available, an agreement has been reached between all involved parties and Amplive has been granted permission to release Rainydayz Remixes for free to the general public. And guess what — it’s available now. Effective immediately, the eight-track record will be available for download in zip formatHERE.
Rainydayz Remixes Tracklist
02 Video Tapez (Ft. Del The Funky Homosapien)
03 Nudez (Ft. Too $hort & MC Zumbi of Zion I)
04 Weird Fishez
05 All I Need
06 15 Stepz (Ft. Codany Holiday)
07 Reckonerz (Ft. Chali2NA)

This guy did, over 300 times and it paid off. I’m totally one of those guilty people that puts off changing my oil every day. Terrible I know— maybe I’ll learn my lesson from Frank Orsenik from Wisconsin. He did what I never even imagined possible and hit the Million Mile mark in his ‘91 Chevy Silverado. Insane!! When he bought it, there was only 41,000 on it. That’s A LOT of miles a year. Hope he has a good playlist on his ipod to keep him entertained!
