This one is for the Beastie Boys…specifically Ad Rock. Three things have happened to me lately that have intensified my already huge amount of respect for the b-boys. First, I have seen their new film twice. I saw what was called “Awesome, I F***in Shot That!” at Sundance with a sound system they brought and we were all subwoofed into a b-boy nirvana…the theater was throbbing. Saw it again recently and it was called “An Awesome Evening with the Beastie Boys.” It is amazing and funny and you should all see it. Ad Rock is one of the coolest dancers around. Watch and learn. Second, My friend Kathryn and I met MCA in Park City and he was so incredibly cool, we just chatted for a bit. Third, and I might be a laggard on this one, but did you know that Ad Rock is remixing under the two names 41 Small Stars and Small Stars… because I did not. So here are two remixes by him and you can also get another from this old post. I feel a little bad about leaving Mike D out so I will tell you now how much I like his killer collection of sunglasses.
mp3: The Negotiation Limerick File (The 41 Small Star Remix)
This is on the single along with some other great mixes.
mp3: Beastie Boys – Fight For Your Right (To Party) Mix
I don’t know much about this except that it was originally on some vinyl in the UK. Good Stuff.
