Radiohead's Thom Yorke Suggests Collaboration With Madlib, DOOM
Last year, Yorke remixed "Gazzillion Ear" from DOOM's (f/k/a MF DOOM) BORN LIKE THIS album. The work exclusively appeared on the iTunes edition of the Lex Records release.
On Tuesday of this week, Yorke played co-host to Gilles Peterson's BBC radio show, where the duo happened to play a number of records, including recent music from Jay Electronica and Stones Throw's Dam-Funk.
Yorke revealed that he has deeper connections to Peanutbutter Wolf's California-based label. The Radiohead singer said there was talks of a project between him and former Lootpack front-man Madlib. Although the work was halted by time and schedule constraints, Yorke alluded that he and the Oxnard, California-born emcee, producer and Quasimoto, Yesterday's New Quintet, Beatkonducta impresario may have future projects together. Yorke reportedly already has a batch of Madlib beats.
Although the casual conversation between Peterson and Yorke was loose, Yorke did say that there's been work done with Madvillain, and a remix will be heard soon.
Radiohead fans will be pleased to know that the band begins a month-long studio session today.
