It only took Pocket two days to remix Radiohead’s Björk cover after thumbs_down day, which means comparatively speaking, Amplive is a slacker; it’s taken him a whole seven weeks to put his spin on the Gummys bait that is In Rainbows. The Bay Area producer (Akon, Talib Kweli)/half of Zion I has scrapped together a project dubbed Rainydayz Remixes, culling six IR cuts and chopping ‘em up, spiking the punch with varying degrees of embellishments. “Weird Fishes” stays true to the original’s arc — one groove, one progression; slowly grooving, slowly progressing — spiced up with a fake finish, some Thom tinkering and a Radiohead-meets-Neptunes-enhanced-JT beat. Ain’t nobody love you like I love you, etc.
Amplive’s “Nude” comes as more of a makeover, complete with some new verses letting you know “big booty girls are a black man’s savior.”
The six-song tracklist has yet to be revealed, although it looks like Amplive will just keep posting to his MySpace. Don’t know what’s gonna be on it, but who needs “Videotape” when you’ve got polaroids.
