The musician, whose new album Beams was released this week, told Digital Spy that remixes cannot be forced.
"I'd still love to do a Radiohead remix," Dear said.
"Remixes are tough though. You can't force it. It has to make sense. You can't just pick any song."
He added: "I think it'd be fun to remix a pop artist, just to hear all the stems - you get all the chunks of the songs broken down.
"It'd be cool to hear that, to see how they're putting it all together. A Timbaland production would be amazing. To hear his pieces and see what he does."
Asked about his modern influences, Dear said: "Number one would be Animal Collective. Those guys are just phenomenal.
"I really, really love what they do and I look forward to each release of theirs like I did Radiohead when I was growing up, or when I was first getting into The Beatles.
"I was so excited to get it all and take it in. They're a musical passion. I really like Beach House. I really like what they do - the marriage of pop and rock bliss. I'm really into that. Grizzly Bear are fantastic."
