Boutique Beats: A Tribute to MCA

Boutique Beats: A Tribute to MCA

Repost8

About the show

Playing tracks by

Alan Moorhouse, Jimmy Smith, Beastie Boys, Zapp, Ronnie Laws and more.

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.

I'll resist writing anything lengthy on the Beastie Boys legacy here, but you can read my thoughts on MCA and the group on my blog here:

A full tracklist including sample credits will be up on www.musicofsubstance.com shortly. Special thanks to Leroy Knockolds from www.ahsht.com for the artwork.

In good old USA we can't even see the tracklist, let alone listen to it, ironic considering where he's from... I'm gonna stop short of saying it's a stupid policy, I'm sure the lawyers, advertisers, and others who need to make a buck at the expense of our cultural heritage have their reasons. Who would be daft enough to buy a membership from you guys? At any rate, any other place I could listen to this? Buy it?

I'm not trying to make you buy a membership, I'm uploading mixes which are free to listen to. This is why by the way: http://support.mixcloud.com/customer/...
