Radiohead’s “Reckoner” got a video earlier this month. Before that, a ton of remix contestants. Courtesy of DJ Earworm, the track now gets to share space with that other frequently talked about single — Ellen-approved, auto-tuned “Love Lockdown.” We have “Reckoner Lockdown” in audio and visual form. The video mashes Kanye’s monochromatic apartment and African dancers with Clemont Picon’s Radiohead aniboom-winning animation, sp(l)icing up the place a bit.

The video mashup’s by Instamatic. DJ Earworm’s more portable form:

While we’re on “Reckoner,” Diplo updated his previously posted remix. It’s called “Reckoner v2.0 (Diplo In A Train Wreck Mix).” The explanation:

before I went to australia i was asked to remix reckoner.. so I was goin back and forth with the band on a version and was almost done.. but it got leaked as a demo.. no big deal.. i still got votes up on the radiohead thing as an official mix … i eventually mixed it down….

so I got that to the label but kept workin on the mix.. eventually i came up up with something else even.. i really like it too, a lil more clubworked in the end.. the originaly idea was to make the biggest drum break of all TIME! but then it got scarey.. so here is the tame kangaroo version.. also theres a very nice picture of me throwin up gang signs behind thom york.

The song:

Maybe the world doesn’t need another “Reckoner” remix, but that was fun.
