SBTRKT will release a new 12″ on May 8th through XL for his track ‘Hold On’ featuring a remix by mystery remixer SiSi BakBak which is rumoured to in fact be Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke. The digital version will be out this coming Monday. A Beggars Group publicist could not confirm that Sisi BakBak is in fact the Radiohead frontman.
So is the rumour in fact true? Here’s the evidence for you to ponder…
- KEXP 90.3 FM host Cheryl Waters claimed that the remix was by someone who will play Seattle’s Key Arena in April, and Radiohead is playing the venue on April 9.
- Rob da Bank from the BBC tweeted, “listening to the thom yorke mix of @SBTRKT for the 18th time…unbeatable!”
- SBTRKT remixed Radiohead on TKOL RMX 1234567, and could Thom Yorke be returning the favour?
- The track sounds kind of like Kid A-era Radiohead.
Take a listen decide for yourself – rumour or not?
