Rhyming In Rainbows


I finally finished my most recent time wasting project rhyming in rainbows. The mixtape consists of songs using only samples from each track from the new radiohead album In Rainbows. So, say, track 5 on this mixtape Def Cover by Murs features only samples from the 5th track off In Rainbows which is All I need.

You can download the album 2 ways. One normal download, which is a 56 MB .zip file. Or you can download a torrent, which is hosted on the piratebay. If you dont know what a torrent is then just ignore this and download the normal way. You can also preview each track below, note though, the previews are a lower quality than the actual files you download.

  1. [Now I know this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.. but I’m a sucker for mash-ups. Especially hip hop mash-ups. This album came to my attention when hippomothamus introduced himself on a board I frequent. I especially like the idea behind this..]

  2. im not a fan of kanye or that kanye song, but you made it into a really good song...great mixtape man

  3. this mixtape is increadable and origional album, thank you for doing this tape and for giving this to us for free. Much appreciated and to nyone else out there who like this tape i suggest a group of djs called the klaptones, they are the same typ of music

  4. Hi I heard that your mashup is sweet, but you've taken it down from your site. Can you put it back up so that I can grab it or let me know where else I can find it? thanks man heyhungly(at)gmail(dot)com

    Not really. Mine dropped 23rd of November. The first I heard about amplive's one was when people started emailing me, after mine was out, telling me that someone else was doing a in rainbows hip hop remix thing. Then he got all the attention due to all the controversy around the release of it.

  7. Pretty awesome, I'm enjoying both Ting Tings and Radiohead in a new way.
    Keep it up (if you can!) Makes me wonder what the music world would look like if Gilbert O'Sullivan vs. Biz Markie had never happened...

  8. Hey man, I downloaded this initially back in '09 but have since lost it. I also, lost who you were till a rapgenius retweeted something about something. Anywho, can you set this up for download somewhere?

  9. This is freaky good. Been on my playlist for years!

  10. Here's a mirror on mega. I've embedded the cover into the mp3s. Otherwise it's unctouched, downloaded from the sporadically seeded torrent.!8HJXEY4S!3M6E9tUylk_-xwYUd6iXpuWTarnUsT3DkuGw3VLkjy4

  11. Loved this mash up (Superior to Rainydayz) many years ago but lost it. Any ideas where i can find it as all the avenues tried have turned into Cul de Sacs?
