Randomizer Pt. 3 The Beastles – Word To The Mic
Every time an unexpected winner, a long lost favourite or previously unheard nugget shuffles it’s way into play on my mp3 player. I log it in the blog. This time its;
The Beastles – Word To The Mic.mp3
I don’t mind the ol’ booty remixes. I know they’re about as dated as Teddy Boys now, but a couple of years ago bootleg remixers and bedroom techies were as A list as Banksy. Constantly ram raiding radio shows with their remixes, or spraying new mashup masterpieces all over the internet.
This piece of oddbod pop was put together by DJBC, whose Beastles project (Beastie Boys Vs Beatles based booties) ran for two albums, both of which are currently out of circulation.
Luckily I managed to grab them while they were up, along with far too many megabytes of other rare mashup mp3’s.
*Has moment of quite smugness*
I may start logging some of these on the blog under the title
“It’s All Too Bootyful” - ouch! Perhaps not.
Any alt.suggestions would be welcome. A prize of both DJBC albums to the winner
The big boss of bootleg remixers was Mark Vidler aka Go Home Productions . GHP did the legendary Madonna Sex Pistols - Ray Of Gob smashup which led to comissions from Bowie and Franz Ferdinad
Tomorrow he releases a free 5 year retrospective of the best, rare and unreleased remixes "This Was Pop (2002-2007)". It includes some of these benchmark booties

It's available via the Go Home Productions website, but may not be on line for long, so grab it while you can
