NOTE: Files fixed…
Well, isn’t this a drag of monumental proportions?
I was just surfing the web this morning when I saw the news that the mighty MCA, Adam Yauch had succumbed to cancer at the age of 47.
Though I reference the world of hip hop in this space often, I have never posted any here, until today.
I own a grip of Beastie Boys stuff on CD but the only vinyl record of theirs is the one you see before you today.
I’m a big fan of sample-based music/turntablism/remix culture, but I really (REALLY) dig it when it’s funky (Jungle Brothers, ATCQ etc) , and it doesn’t get much funkier than ‘Jimmy James’.
With the (multiple) Jimi Hendrix samples (and those Turtles drums) and the various and sundry vinyl manipulations ‘Jimmy James’ rocks the house in a big way.
I’m including the 12″ mix and the LP mix both.
MCA was a righteous dude, musician, humanitarian, husband and father.
He will be missed.
See you on Monday.
Keep the faith
