SBTRKT Remixed By Thom Yorke?

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…

  1. 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.
  2. Rob da Bank from the BBC tweeted, “listening to the thom yorke mix of @SBTRKT for the 18th time…unbeatable!”
  3. SBTRKT remixed Radiohead on TKOL RMX 1234567, and could Thom Yorke be returning the favour?
  4. The track sounds kind of like Kid A-era Radiohead.

Take a listen decide for yourself – rumour or not?
