Stylo (Chiddy Bang Hip Hop Remix) - and other remix news

Some further Stylo remix news... there's a remix that has been everywhere on the internet in the last few days and it'd be negligent of us not to point you in its direction. It's the Chiddy Bang Hip Hop Remix. Check it out on Youtube here if you haven't heard it already. No word on whether it's official or will become so.

In other remix news:- A remix that hasn't blown up yet but is well worth checking out - the Log S. remix, stream or download it here.

And finally, check back on Gorillaz-Unofficial on Monday for an announcement about the second Stylo remix to be endorsed by Gorillaz (the first being the Labrinth SNES Remix featuring Tinie Tempah - see the previous G-U news item here).

Report / summary of Gorillaz article in Spex magazine

A few days ago, we reported that Gorillaz feature on the front cover of the current issue of the German magazine Spex ( G-U report was here if you missed it). Gorillaz fan German Shake got hold of a copy of the magazine and has sent in a report about its contents, which include new Plastic Beach information.

German Shake writes:- "It's a 5-page article. There's new art in it in the style of the front cover, but it's apparently all drawn by "Patrick Klose". It's not really an interview either, just with a few quotes from André de Ridder and the founder of Can, Holger Czukay. just gonna translate the interesting bits and pieces, because the article is pretty pretentious; they try very hard to be at least as negative about Gorillaz as positive. Like it's all gre­at, but in the end it's just a clever marketing invention, too. 4 of the 5 pages have old info that we knew before."
