Wie Chris Read richtig anmerkt, hat es nach MCAs Tod bereits reichlich Tribute-Mixes gegeben, um den verstorbenen Beastie Boy zu ehren. Chris‘ Mix zählt sicherlich zu den äußerst hörenswerten darunter.
Predictably, the internet has been awash with MCA / Beastie Boys tribute mixes in the days that have passed since the untimely passing of Adam Yauch. I’ve listened to many, enjoyed a few but, as I often do, felt the need to put my own mark on it all. So, in less than 24 hours I set about putting together ‚Boutique Beats‘, not your standard ‚best of‘, but a collection of some of my favourites, laced with original breaks samped by the Beastie Boys (largely but not exclusively for the Paul’s Boutique album), acapellas, remixes and plenty else besides.
