Thom Yorke and MF Doom will “end up doing a whole record together”

21 Mar

Just after his announcement that he would be working with Four Tet and Burial for his next single, Radiohead lead Thom Yorke revealed today that he will be collaborating on an album with MF Doom. When asked about this speculation, Doom responded, eloquently I might add, “We’ve got some ill ass ideas.”

The two have been working on some duets, and an album seemed like the next logical step. Until we pick up anything from this album, enjoy Thom Yorke’s remix of Doom’s “Gazzillion Ear.” We’ll keep you updated on what is to come…

More Zelda sampling — “Ocarina of Rhyme”

15 Mar

I feel like a broken record having just talked about The Legend of Zelda samples yesterday, and I know this remix album came out long ago in spring of 2009, but it’s too awesome not to bring up.

With this album, Team Teamwork compiled many of the beloved songs from the Zelda world (such as the themes to “The Lost Woods,” “The Great Fairy Fountain,” and “Finding Treasure” to name a few) and mashed them up with the beats and acapella tracks to classic Hip Hop songs.

I can’t do these mash-ups justice through words, so you’ll just have to take a listen for yourself. Below is a link to Team Teamwork’s blog where you can download this superb album for free!


Clipse’s Virginia mashed with the famous Lost Woods theme:

MF Doom’s Vomitspit mashed with the Lon Lon Ranch Horse Race song:

First post! — Doom, Wiz, and Tyler linked via sample

28 Feb

I’ve been listening to Tyler, The Creator nonstop lately…but then again, who hasn’t? This kid is so raw.

But when listening to Odd Toddlers off of his 2010 release “Bastard,” my friend pointed out that he uses a sample that MF Doom used long ago.

After some research, I realized that MF Doom did in fact use the same sample on his record “MM Food” (one of my favorites).

Then I found out that Wiz Khalifa was ALSO noted for using this sample in his 2010 mixtape, “Kush & Orange Juice.”

Well, the original song is called Huit Octobre 1971, and it is by Cortex. Check it out…

Here is MF Doom’s usage of the sample in his song One Beer…

This is Wiz Khalifa’s version in Visions…

Finally, this is Tyler, The Creator’s Odd Toddlers…

Hope you enjoyed my first of many posts.
