Tyler, the Creator: AmpLive X Jazz Mafia Remixes
Producer Amplive, best known as half of the hip-hop duo Zion-I teamed up with the Bay-area based Jazz Mafia collective to remix tracks from Tyler the Creator’s Goblin.
The project, according to Pitchfork where it premiered yesterday, is a batch of “appropriately eerie remixes of “Yonkers”, “Radicals”, and “Goblin.” The remixes feature an orchestral cinematic spin on the originals that highlights the sinister dynamism of Tyler, the Creator.
Amplive previously released the Rainydayz Remixes of Radiohead’s In Rainbows without proper approval. After building an internet movement via YouTube, Stereogum and Pitchfork, a settlement was reached an Amplive was allowed to release the album for free.
