Amplive Caught In A Remix!

In March, Oakland producer and Radiohead-remixer extraordinaire Amplive was asked to join a host of musicians at the blogger-curated Hot Freaks party at SXSW. His time in Austin led to some new and fruitful collaborations. Following in the tradition of his Rainydayz Remixes, Amplive has sliced and diced the work of Of Montreal, MGMT and Jealous Girlfriends, turning rock songs into squelching, thumping hip hop beasts. Here, Hissing Fauna deep-cut “Fabrege Falls For Suggie” finds itself pressed against the Oracular Spectacular closer, “Future Reflections” on the first track below. Meanwhile JG’s “Hieroglyphics” gets an Amplive makeover on the second. In other news, the reaction to Amplive’s Radiohead remix project has been nothing short of overwhelming, you can check out “Videotape” below.
