After the six-track Echolocations EP was released on R&S last March, Lone seems to have taken a breather. Luckily his absence from the rest of 2011 (except for a Radiohead remix and the one-sided All Those Weird Things) allowed us to recover from the dreamy beach rave that he took us on between listening to Coreshine Voodoo and Blossom Quarter.

Next up for Yorke is a mix he did for the BBC’s 6Mix, which will air on Sunday, Oct. 17th.

Radiohead somewhat sleepy album, The King of Limbs, keeps getting more interesting as the group unveils the third in a series of remix records. That latest comes out next week and features semi-regular Thom Yorke collaborator Four Tet, along with exciting new UK producers Lone and Pearson Sound. You can stream all three drumtastic versions right here, right now.
