A few weeks ago maybe a month while browsing the net I found Max Tannone's Double Check Your Head by the Beastie Boys.
Now the Beasties need no introduction but Max Tannonne (Formely Minty Fresh Beats) is a producer that released Jaydiohead which was a Jay-Z and Radiohead mashup. Now with Double Check you Head, he took lyrics and instrumental tracks from the classic Beasties album Check Your Head and the results is well... Imagine mashing up all that classic material.
When you listen to these songs they feel current, considering Check Your Head came out in 1992. This 7 song remix album is out of this world, the remixes are tight the production sounds crisp most of all all of these song has an individual twist to them, little sounds that we're not part of the instrumental tracks and there's even a new song in there featuring Nas.
You must check it out and if you only heard post 90's Beastie's stuff it's nothing compared to their first 4 albums and my all time favorite is Paul's Boutique (if you want to know)
Peace & I'm out
Man oh man it's been almost two months since my last post, I was neck deep in my graphic design thing but as always I gotta come back to music. Food feeds the belly but music (amongst other things) feeds the soul.
As I was preparing my next mix (that will be posted within the next week or so) I discovered this dude called Ruckazoid!. This Los Angeles based DJ/Producer is just insane, I mean you gotta check it for your self. He stacks synthytisers (6 of them to be axact) and actually constructed his own turntables this guy is serious about his music. I would descibe his sounds as pure 80's breakbeat but he's no one trick cat, he produced from Lil' Wayne, Drake and he's coming out with a new album under the name Ruckazoid and the humans.
You know what I think the best thing is for you to check him out:
I'm sure we will hear from Ruckazoid! in the near future as for thegoodvibez I got two new original mixes that will be posted soon, I'm also going to redesign the blog.
Peace & I'm out
