MF Doom meets Radiohead and Another Strung-Out Beat

Damn – they stole my idea – or rather they beat me to the punch. I love the piece “Proven Lands” on Radiohead guitarist Johnny Greenwood’s soundtrack to There Will be Blood – if there were ever a beat to be flipped from music made for a string ensemble, this is it, and I’ve been struggling to find a way to remix it/mash it up. Now, it seems Radiohead and MF Doom (or DOOM, as he now prefers to be called) have done just that with “Retarded Fren“:

Oh well. Better the originators than some other bedroom beatmaker.

In the meantime, here’s another beat I made using samples from Philippe Sarde’s soundtrack Roman Polanski’s film ‘The Tenant’ and some violins sampled from The Kronos Quartet’s rendition of George Crumb’s “Black Angels.” Love ‘dem beats with strings.
