Over three years in the making, DJ Cheeba, DJ Moneyshot and DJ Food have just released a reworking of the Beastie Boys classic, Pauls Boutique. The hour long collection titled ”Caught in the Middle of A 3-Way Mix,” digs deep into the original source material used by the Dust Brothers to create the group’s genre-defying second record.
via LA Times:
“Those who never quite appreciated the pastiche masterpiece that is “Paul’s Boutique” are particularly encouraged to dig in. The nooks and crannies that the three DJs have discovered and connected are wonderfully revealing. They crack open tom tom beats swiped from Elvis Costello‘s “Pump It Up,” blend sourced samples from Black Oak Arkansas, the Eagles and Tower of Power, swipe sounds from Led Zeppelin, the Meters and Johnny Cash, shock with the string screeches from Alfred Hitchcock‘s film composer Bernard Herrmann. And by mixing in commentary from recorded interviews with the Beasties themselves discussing the album’s creation, the thing feels like some sort of sonic documentary.”
