Confluence of Melancholy and Krunk

Impossible you say! How can these two disparate elements join forces? Well, check "Videotape Tomato Remix": http://www.thesixtyone.com/s/5OduI0zqhQf/

I like this tune because of its plaintive vocals and piano, yet it also has the ubiquitous wobbly bass and synth with the banging beat which is sometimes nice. I dig the blending of emotions and genres.

I first found the artist, Tom Ato, on the Sixtyone whose bio says:
"Tom Ato is a Knoxville based DJ/remix artist. House, Disco, Funk, Electro, Trance, Dubstep, Chip, DnB, hip hop, rap, rock, pop, mashups. Bang this in the club. Bump this at the party."
He's also deft with the pun as you'll see if you browse through his catalog.

Here's his official: http://www.djtomatomusic.com/

Believe it or not, I didn't even know this tune was originally a Radiohead song (stopped following them awhile back), so I had to go find it and give it a listen. It's on "In Rainbows" for those of you who are like me and don't follow them like they're the Next Coming. What I found was an excellent, lonely video (with the tune of course) that you can easily find on the internet- cheers.
