dj BC has released a second album of "Beastles" (Beatles/Beastie Boys) mashups called Let It Beast. dj BC is one of my all time favorite mashup artists, not least because I love both the Beatles and the Beasties and the way that he mixes them together brings new life to both. He clearly loves his source material dearly, and his treatment of them is playful, artistic, and totally danceable. I'm halfway through the new album, and I'm already in love, especially with Electrified Kite, a remix of "Being for the Benefit of Mr Kite" and "Electrify."

(Thanks, dj BC!
Update: dj BC sez, "My service
provider panicked (due to volume, not content) and as
a result the site is down temporarily. I hope to
rectify the situation this evening, but in the
meantime, I wonder if you'd like to provide this
torrent link to the full album and CD sleeve?"
