Radiohead - TKOL RMX 1234567 - Out Today
IDM Music & XL Rerordings present:
Double album of The King Of Limbs remixes, out today!
"I was really curious to see how the people I was listening to so much would use what we gave them. I didn't just want floor fillers and all that shit, I just wanted to see how the songs could really branch out and mutate.
I love that there is such a culture of remixing at the moment, all this flow of ideas. It may come outta the club scene but to me there is a lot more to it than that.
I think it appeals to us as a band at the moment that ideas and versions are not so fixed and set in stone, it feels kind of healthy for music."
To celebrate the launch of the album, there will be a special Radiohead Takeover of the Boiler Room tonight (11th October). Streaming live from Corsica Studios, south London, 8pm-11pm (BST) the event will feature DJ sets from Thom Yorke, Jamie xx, Caribou, Lone and Illum Sphere.
Tune in live at:
RIP STEVE JOBS
One of the greatest inventors of our age, Steve Jobs, a man who not only changed our way of thinking and using technology but deeply put his mark on humanity, passed away yesterday.
We have lost much more than the Apple founder, and as Barrack Obama said:
"there may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented."
Thank you Steve for your contribution to human kind. RIP
EU EXTENDS COPYRIGHT ON SOUND RECORDINGS FROM 50 TO 70 years
This Monday, September 12, the European Union voted to extend the copyright on sound recordings from 50 to 70 years.
Following a prolonged campaign run by a large number of artists and labels, the Directive on Term of Protection of Copyright and Certain Related Rights has been adopted yesterday in the Council of Ministers in Brussels.
The Directive extends the term of protection of the rights of performers and phonogram producers on music recordings within the EU from 50 to 70 years and harmonises the term of protection of co-written works. The term of protection for co-written works will expire 70 years after the death of the last person to survive: the author of the lyrics or the composer of the music.
As a result of the extension, many popular titles released nearly 50 years ago will not fall into the public domain for another 20 years. Chief among the artists to benefit is the Beatles: The band's first single, "Love Me Do," was released in October of 1962.
The new legislation, which has become known as "Cliff's Law" in the U.K. named after Sir Cliff Richard, a long term campaigner for copyright extension, applies to performing artists, producers and sessions musicians featured on recorded works.
EU Member States will have to incorporate the new provisions into their national legislations within two years.

Mizz Nina unleashes new single "Takeover" and collaborates with Flo Rida and IDM's producer Koolade
Time flies when you're having fun! It's certainly been a whirlwind ride for Malaysian urban pop artist Mizz Nina since she broke new ground in the local music scene with her debut solo album What You Waiting For in July 2010. She topped all of the Malaysian charts with the album's lead single of the same name (with Colby O'Donis) that gained a whopping 600,000 in mobile caller ringtone downloads in a matter of weeks, making it the first local English single to ever make that achievement. Now, a year after, Mizz Nina repeats her success with her new single "Takeover", featuring internationally renowned hip hop artist Flo Rida.
Previously known for her rapping chops as a member of AIM award-nominated group The Tajrk Crew, Mizz Nina returns with a bigger and better sound that is set to slay fans and new listeners alike. On the new single Mizz Nina teams up with one of today's hottest international artists in urban Top 40 music: Flo Rida. A prolific rapper-singer and serial collaborator with hits such as "Low" (with T-Pain), "In The Ayer" (with Will.I.Am.), "Elevator" (with Timbaland) and most recently "Club Can't Handle Me" (with David Guetta), Flo Rida was a natural choice in helping to devise a soaring pop ditty that would win the hearts of listeners everywhere.
The music production of the song has also been once again dedicated to Croatian producer Koolade, who is one of the most popular European hip-hop/pop producers, and is represented by IDM Music.
