‘Boutique Beats: A Tribute to MCA’

  • Release date: 2012-05-10
  • Label: N/A

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 sampled by the Beastie Boys (largely but not exclusively for the Paul’s Boutique album), acapellas, remixes and plenty else besides.
