Musicians DJ Food, Cheeba, and Moneyshot spent three years recreating the Beastie Boys masterful Paul's Boutique from "all the original samples plus a cappellas, period interviews and the Beasties’ own audio commentary from the reissued release." This is a sequel-of-sorts to Cheeba and Moneyshot's "Beastie Boy Beats: Check Your Head." DJ Food's post on the project includes a full tracklist with source material references. "Caught In The Middle of A 3-Way Mix – a tribute to The Beastie Boys‘ ‘Paul’s Boutique’ album"


  1. Paul’s Boutique is on my top 10 albums of all time. I will look forward to this.

    OK – I’m an idiot – but is there a way to download this or is it streaming only?

    1. Still not seeing where to download. thanks

      ETA – no wait i found out. Horrible UI, IMHO. Thanks so much for the link.

    zomg this is gold

    ps: “caught in the middle of a 3way mix” is a reference to a b-side mix of “Shadrach” where instead of the usual of each rapper doing his bit and passing the mic to the next rapper, they each overlay a track of themselves doing the whole rap. its pretty fun.

  3. Interesting project. Paul’s Boutique is my favourite album of all time. They haven’t recreated the album, they’ve done a sort of tribute, very much in the DJ Food style of too many vocal samples. It’s a bit of a nice mess in a listen-once way.

    I’m kinda glad it’s not a full recreation, as I’m working on that myself, but I’ve only got as far as 2/3 of Shake Your Rump :)

    The 33 1/3 book about the making of Paul’s Boutique is an interesting read if you want to know more about this iconic album.
