DJ Cheeba, DJ Moneyshot & DJ Food mixed up a storm last night when they made a live mix re-making the Beastie Boys' 'Paul's Boutique'. An absolute bobby belter of a mix collaboration, it made the mundane task of chipping tiles off the kitchen wall seem almost like fun as I listened on Strongroom Alive. Check it out...

From Solid Steel....
 3 years ago Solid Steel DJs Cheeba, Moneyshot and Food had the idea of collaborating on a version of the Beastie Boys‘ ‘Paul’s Boutique’ album made entirely from the original sample sources, shortly after Moneyshot aired his mix of their ‘Check Your Head’ album in the same way.
Finally the result is here, titled ‘Caught In The Middle Of A 3-Way Mix’ - each of them have taken a third of the album to work on and combined their efforts into a mix that will make you hear it in a new way. Aside from the original sample sources they’ve included commentary from the Beasties, vintage interviews, demo versions and much more.
The mix was over half way completed when they heard the tragic news of MCA‘s death in May so the impetus to finish it was instantly doubled and new meaning given to the project. It goes without saying that this is also a tribute to Adam Yauch and the legacy he left behind and we hope it will be embraced by Beastie fans around the globe.

A little piece of me

Finally managed to get this mixtape finished off before I head off for a couple of weeks in the South, nothing too fresh going on; just a little bit of fun I had whilst waiting for the gas man. 50 minutes of funk taken from the 'new downloads 3' folder on the lappy. It's a bit all over the chippy; and I really need to send myself back to Scratching 101, however my little brother has been on at me to put something up for him for a while so here you are, Gail, this one is for you pal.

Music to ride a bike to

Another Friday mix bomb - and a return to Solid Steel for an Olympic themed couple of hours from Ninja Tune's finest; Coldcut.

...It's a sport related show this week and Coldcut drop a mix dedicated to all things cycling, taking in a few left turns, one or two wobbles and plenty of freewheeling in support of Critical Mass. You'll ride past music for the self propelled from artists like Brentford Allstars, Nazareth, The Orb and Autechre, before reaching the end of the road with Tour De France by Kraftwerk...

Who's next...?

These boys killed it on Saturday, along with Akil they delivered an amazing live show. Sadly I was helping a rather 'Shakey' friend relocate the contents of his pockets after a tumble so missed the end of the set but at least I can get down to this mix; which they have put together to show their love for Lovebox, without any such distractions. 

"Ladies and Gentlemen. Today on the eve of London’s weekend of love, we bring you a special new full-on Nextmen mix spanning those artists that have played Lovebox over the past ten years, from Blondie and The Human League to Chase & Status and Katie B.  The Nextmen vs Lovebox 2012 - 10 Years Of Love."

Electric Treats

I've been a busy lad the last few weeks, Tramlines proved to be a success. Followed by an impromptu visit to the Isle of Man to visit the fam, and then straight into Electric Beach down at Watergate Bay, Cornwall. Hong Kong Ping Pong got the party moving whilst The Breaks Collective rinsed it out finishing with an amazing 3 minute megamix of Hip Hop's greatest bangers. Nextmen killed it with J5 's Akil on MC duties, and to round it off none other than De La Soul played to an electric crowd as the sun set. So to kick things off, lets start with a little HKPP....
