I haven’t been that bothered about listening to the new Radiohead King of Limbs remixes that were released recently, but with artists invited to contribute such as Caribou, Nathan Fake and Jacques Greene it has been something of a hipster’s wet dream. I did however stumble upon the Four Tet remix ofÂ Separator today and was pleasantly surprised with what I heard.
Four Tet have worked on Radiohead tracks before, most notably the Skttrbrain remix on Radiohead’s 2004 EP release, COM LAG (2plus2isfive). They also opened for the band during their Hail to the Thief tour so it was no real shock to find that they were invited to remix the track.
The first half acts as a nice build-up to the epic second half which reminds me a bit of Massive Attack‘s bassline killer Angel. Anyhow, it’s a nice choice to while away 7 minutes of your time.
