Thom Yorke mentions future collab with Madlib/Madvillain

It’s no secret that most of the band members in Radiohead are vocal fans of hip-hop. Check the “Office Chart” playlists that they occasionally post on Dead Air Space, and it’s easy to see their affinity for the genre. Likewise, respectable members of the hip-hop community reciprocate the love. We can’t say that without mentioning the Thom Yorke remix of the song “Gazzillion Ear” from the masked emcee’s most recent LP, Born Like This.

Oh, but Yorke is not stopping with DOOM. Yorke recently co-hosted Gilles Peterson’s BBC radio show and dropped hints that he’s been in talks to collaborate with influential hip-hop producer and Stones Throw Records resident Madlib. Details on the project were fuzzy, with Yorke citing time and schedule constraints as reasons why the project has not come together sooner. Reportedly, he already has some Madlib beats, and he told the radio host that a Madvillain remix can be expected soon (Madvillain is the collaboration between DOOM and Madlib).

This is exciting news for both hip-hop heads and Radiohead heads.
