Boutique Beats: A Tribute to MCA

Not part of the Classic Material mix series as such, but mixed by Classic Material DJ and curator Chris Read in tribute to Adam Yauch, better known as MCA of the Beastie Boys who sadly passed away last week after a lengthy battle with cancer aged just 47. A few words from Chris Read:

“Predictably, the internet has been awash with MCA / Beastie Boys tribute mixes in the days that have passed since the untimely passing of Adam Yauch. I’ve listened to many, enjoyed a few but, as I often do, felt the need to put my own mark on it all. So, in less than 24 hours I set about putting together ‘Boutique Beats’, not your standard ‘best of’, but a collection of some of my favourites, laced with original breaks sampled by the Beastie Boys (largely but not exclusively for the Paul’s Boutique album), acapellas, remixes and plenty else besides.”
