The 12 (Possibly) Most Jaw-Dropping Radiohead Remixes Of All Time

Radiohead, a ban so iconic and yet often only superficially appreciated that many have failed to recognized how they were, for at least a large period of time, the world’s biggest political band — the word’s most woke band.

To understand Radiohead one has to know their roots. The band formed in 1985 at Abingdon School, an elite private institution in the heart of the English countryside county of Oxfordshire. Their privileged early life influenced the band in ways it wouldn’t with others: the five members — Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Ed O’Brien (guitar, backing vocals), Colin Greenwood (bass), and Phil Selway (drums, percussion, backing vocals) — bonded over a common spirit of rebellion and radicalism, and translated those feelings to their music in impeccable fashion. The band’s anti-establishment roots further developed during the late 80’s period of indie expression, the same post-punk movement that took a decisive stance against Western (especially in Britain) conservatism and big corporation.

Wednesday nights at Amnesia Ibiza have been Hyte territory since last summer, when the techno-centered residency first landed on the island with bang. While in 2015 the residency was spearheaded by Loco Dice and Maceo Plex, this year the latter has left and launched his own debut Mosaic residency at Pacha Ibiza. Loco Dice will continue to head Hyte with appearances at all except three nights throughout the entire summer.

The 16-week party series will begin on June 1st with a pre-opening party before officially starting on June 29th and ending on October 5th. The roster of talent is deep, with a total of 42 artists set to perform. Others regularly playing the Wednesday night party include Chris Liebing (12 nights), Pan-Pot (11 nights) and Enzo Siragusa who is bringing his Fuse imprint to the Club room on four nights throughout the residency.

Some of the most illustrious guests visiting the club include Robert Hood who will play twice as Floorplan; Henrik Schwarz who is playing three times solo and once as one-half of Schwarzmann in September ; Gregor Tresher on July 6th; Premiesku with two separate dates; and finally the likes of Len Faki, Maya Jane Coles, Caribou and DJ Harvey all playing once.

This summer, Hyte is promoting a “Yes To All” mentality of inclusion, hoping to bring together a mix of club-goers who enjoy big room techno, tech house and house alike. They will also be hosting 5 after-hours event at Cova Santa, set for June 1st, July 27th, August 10th, August 17th and September 28th. Lineups are still TBA but will likely feature artists that played Amnesia the night before. You can find the full Hyte roster below or through RA’s promoter page.

Four Tet brings Floating Points, Ben UFO, Daphni and Madlib to LA

Four Tet

This morning the dance music community was hit with a whirlwind of announcements, including the full Lightning In a Bottle line-up and Movement Detroit’s Phase I.

Because good things perhaps come in threes, Four Tet added to the news of his Movement debut and LIB performances with the release of a unique mini-festival set to take place at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles on April 30th.

Presented together with Los Angeles based promoters FYF and Goldenvoice (who puts together Coachella), the night will feature performances by British DJ sensation Ben UFO, Daphni (Caribou’s frontman Dan Snaith), Madlib and perhaps the most acclaimed named of this stellar line-up, Floating Points. The latter caused waves of excitement with his amazing Essential Mix debut in 2015 and has been one of the most sought-after acts to catch since, especially considering the fact that he only played less than ten live sets as of December 2015. Four Tet himself will be performing, a return behind the decks in Los Angeles after his six-hour set at Lot 613 in early December.

Floating POints

Tickets for the 18-and-over show are on sale now, starting at a cheap $15.
