Alex Metric Remix of Stylo not official - clarification over Stylo remixes

Thanks to ZNAKERS and street soldier for this news:-

Gorillaz-Unofficial has been reporting on the various mixes of Stylo that have been coming out over the last week or so. So far, for those of you have been following closely, we've reported on the DJ Kofi, Alex Metric, Yuksek, Tong & Rogers and Labrinth feat Tinie Tempah remixes (and the Tenkah remix has also been getting quite a few hits on the internet as well). As evidenced by some news we published last year, some of these DJs / remixers were provided with the Stylo materials, by EMI, way before the track Stylo was released or leaked. ( NB: All of these remixes are now available to listen to on Youtube. Simply search for 'Stylo' + the name of the remixer whose remix you wish to hear).

However, we have received some clarification that not all the remixes, even those made with the official materials from EMI, are going to become official. Alex Metric took the time to message a fan on Youtube who had uploaded his remix calling it official, saying "could you amend the title to your video. Unfortunately it has not been accepted and so it is not an official remix" This despite Alex Metric being commissioned by EMI to remix the track, and even having his remix played on the Zane Lowe show on Radio 1 this week.

We await further confirmation on which remixes of Stylo are official and will bring you the news as soon as we have it.
