So i decided to make an mp3 compilation and kickin' it on mediafire...what is this about?
Well, i thought of putting together original tunes the Beasties took their samples from and the trio final result. I have been lucky to found this incredible page
where ALL the fuckin' samples from their milestone "License to ill" to their 2004 word driven album "To the five boroughs" are listed.
A whole new world has opened to my eyes (i should better say "ears"), and i have discovered new music, tv shows, documentaries that are simply amazing.
You know that strange feeling, when you are aware of something, you hear a sound many many different times, a voice, a speech and you try to remember or discover where this is coming from but you don't know exactly where to search for it...well, this page completely fulfilled all my needs.
Few weeks ago, while on my last tour with my ex-band punk rock YOU SUCK!, visiting Berlin one more time i have also been lucky to find gems like ROSE ROYCE "car wash" o.s.t. or ALPHONSE MOUZON "funky snakefoot".
Those records are full of groove, energy, passion, sweat and i think they perfectly fit into the Beasties patchwork.
Two days ago i was invited to spin some records at a CINZANO FIVE show here in Parma, at the Circolo Giovane Italia , and i decided to play this game, performing alternately the original song and then the Beastie's one with the sample in it; and people appreciated that!
The youngest were asking me who the original tune was from, while the older people, knoving better the 60's and 70's bands, were asking from which Beasties' album the tune was selected.
This is the first end result, feel free to comment, to write insults, or just to say hullo.
This was made of course as a tribute to the Beasties and to their roots; and OF COURSE i am making no money from that, so i hope no major label is going to sue me for this.

just an example of what you'll going to find...
