Listen: Jonas Obermüller – ‘Ripples on a Golden Shore’ (Radiohead/Reckoner Remix)
What’s this, another Radiohead remix? Stick around though, this is very much worth your time.
The internet is saturated with many a cut-up warbling from Thom Yorke – and to be fair many are very good, others a bit pusillanimous in nature. So it’s a tricky feat to stand-out, unless you’re a ‘name’. Or Jonas Obermüller.
This remix of the ‘Reckoner’ is so far removed from the original that it’s difficult to believe it’s the same track – which is to it’s benefit ultimately. The burden of knowledge associated with the brilliant original is ripped apart, allowing the listener to be submerged in a pool of originality in this quite beautiful three minutes, wrapped in the title ‘Ripples on a Golden Shore’
Jonas is a German 19 year-old Composer/Sound Designer student, and has remixed Riceboy Sleeps prior to this; with a niche for developing work merging classical and ambient elements judging from his Bandcamp and Soundcloud pages. The stuff of dreamy solo summer days. Download below:
