ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
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"
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?
If you have adblocker, you’ll have to turn it off to DL this. Nearly broke my brain on this, too.
Also here’s the Beastie’s mix without the chat and with a download option http://soundcloud.com/ninja-tune/solid-steel-radio-show-31-8-1
Still not seeing where to download. thanks
ETA – no wait i found out. Horrible UI, IMHO. Thanks so much for the link.
care to enlighten me?
check the top-right corner of the screenshot
thanks for this, Mr. Foakes!
This was totally rad, BTW. I got a lot of good work done today listening to it.
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.
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.
