Product Description

Product Description

BEASTIE BOYS The Mix Up (2007 UK CD album - The Mix-Up finds NYCs favorite sons drawing on one of their arsenals primary strengths and pushing it into bold new directions; with Diamond Horovitz and Yauch back on drums guitar and bass with able assistance from Keyboard Money Mark and percussionist Alfredo Ortiz on 12 brand new wordless sample-less scratchless originals presented in a digipak picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

Having long since shed their image as hip-hop's clown princes, the Beastie Boys now bring what feels like their emeritus recording, a celebratory instrumental memoir of all of the influences (except punk) that brought them to their secure place among hip-hop's fickle elite. The party opens with the aptly titled "B for My Name," its plodding bounce staking claim to the mid-tempo path the album treads almost throughout. "14th St. Break" picks up the pace, especially in the auxiliary percussion breakdown, complete with rally whistle. Then, beginning with "Suco de Tangerina," the album drops into a deep groove cut from dub- and dancehall-tinged ostinati that carry through a full third of its tracks. Among these, "The Gala Event" suffers from a lack of developmental motion that characterises many of these tracks, but highlights still abound. "Off the Grid," for example, departs from the otherwise unbreakable chill and rips the proceedings wide open, blooming again and again in a series of pulsing riffs that celebrate the very institution of the instrumental groove. More than 20 years since Licensed to Ill took a long, irreverent piss into the mainstream, it seems you can still fight for your right to party. --Jason Kirk

I've always been an appreciator of the Beastie Boys since those goofy days of Licensed to Ill. They are a progressive act, developing themsleves and their sound as the last 20 odd years (gulp) of recording has gone by. But, without wishing to state the obvious, they have remained popular because of their hip hop/rap talent and, in turn, their original interpretation of it. A wholly instrumental long player is going to be that..........a LONG player. Don't get me wrong, as individual tracks the material is definately worth a listen. It takes me back to their chilled out sessions for Check Your Head which was probably the bands creative peak (with Paul's Boutique of course). I'm no musical history expert but if you want a sound comparison I'd say this is somewhere between Cafe Bleu era Style Council and Hamilton Bohannon. Stand out tracks on first listen are B For My Name, Off the Grid and The Cousin of Death but as with any Beastie album, it's likely to florish on further listening. Don't get me wrong, it'll be a great CD for listening to whilst driving or for relaxing to throughout the summer but I gotta admit, I miss the words. Still spitting hot fire but perhaps consuming too many fumes.

First off, this aint your avearge Beasties LP. No rapping from Ad Rock, MCA or Mike D, but plenty of chillin' instrumentals. If you liked "The In Sounds From Way Out", then you're sure to dig this collection of chilled out grooooooves. Almost trip-hop in places, with hints of dub, soul and pretty much any other pigeon-hole catagory you can think of, this is an album to come down to. If you're looking for a right-to-party to fight for - this is a long way off but, if you fancy something a little different to kick back to look no further. I'm lovin' it. relax, give it a couple of listens and it'll be on at the very end of all your part sessions.

For all you Beastie Boys fans which are willing to experiment with them.

A collection of great ideas played simply and efficiently!
If you are expecting one of their regular performances with lyrics this is not it. Its a mix
of instrumentals but nonetheless they keep their mind frame, humor, and casual style!

Highly recommended!
