Flying Lotus to remix Radiohead’s The King Of Limbs?

In a recent interview with the Colorado Springs Independent Flying Lotus revealed that he has been asked to remix The King Of Limbs.  Here is an excerpt from the interview:

Indy:I was watching a YouTube clip of you the other night with Thom Yorke onstage. And you know, we’re all pretty familiar with Thom Yorke’s singing, but what can you tell us about his deejaying skills?

FL: Oh man, it’s cool. It’s cool to play alongside Thom because we have similar tastes in electronic music and beats and stuff. And you know, I’d never done that before. But he’s good. Sometimes his mixes are on it, sometimes my mixes are on it, sometimes my mixes are shit, you know?

Indy:So will you be bringing him with you to Colorado?

FL: It’s up to him, man. He’s the one. I’m down for whatever. But if you can convince him to do some shit, I’m there.

Indy:He was also on your last album. Are there any more collaborations like that in the works?

FL: Not that I know of. They wanted me to remix the new Radiohead record, and I’ve been trying to mess with that a little bit. But I haven’t gotten to it yet.

Indy:Tell us what that’ll sound like when you’re done with it?

FL: It’s too early to say, man. I have no fucking clue. It’s difficult to work with, because the pieces that they gave me, there’s no real a cappella. It’s like piano and voice at the same time.

Indy:So you can’t separate them.

FL: No, I can’t. So I have to come up with some shit that’s a little similar to the record, I guess, to an extent.
