big ideas (don't get any).

big ideas (don't get any) by james houston. [via arthur hash.]

radiohead held an online contest to remix "nude" from their album - "in rainbows" this was quite a difficult task for everybody that entered, as nude is in 6/8 timing, and 63bpm. most music that's played in clubs is around 120bpm and usually 4/4 timing. it's pretty difficult to seamlessly mix a waltz beat into a dj set.

this resulted in lots of generic entries consisting of a typical 4/4 beat, but with arbitrary clips from "nude" thrown in so that they qualified for the contest.
