We’re almost at the end of July and it’s been a month of sweet sonic presents from The Beastie Boys, celebrating the 30th anniversary of their seminal 1989 album Paul’s Boutique.
To commemorate, the band have been rolling out a string of 6 EPs dedicated to B-sides, live recordings and digital remixes of their old classics, the latest including Hey Ladies and Sardrach remix EPs.
The Beastie Boys are mid-30th anniversary of seminal 1989 album Paul’s Boutique, celebrating with a string of six digital EPs featuring B-sides and remixes.
The first three EPs were gifted to us on July 19: An Exciting Evening At Home With Shadrach, Meshach And Abednego and the Love American Style EP. The latter being a 4-track EP featuring Hey Ladies and Shake Your Rump, two 1989 Paul’s Boutique bangers, alongside the B-sides 33% God and Dis Yourself in ’98 (Just Do It).
And now we can wrap our eager ears around the next instalment – two EPs devoted to Hey Ladies and Sardrach remixes. These tracks were originally put out on the 2000 The Beastie Boys DVD Video Anthology, showcasing digital technology and their pioneering music videos that paved the way for new visual and sonic expression. The Hey Ladies and Sardrach remixes were part of the original 40 hits found on their anthology and are now available through streaming services as stand-alone EPs.
Their 30th-anniversary collection has received input from a range of friends and collaborators, adding their own creative flair to these seminal tracks. Stones Throw label founder Peanut Butter Wolf, DJ and hip-hop producer Paul Nice and MF Doom collaborator Chuck Bass are just a few names that appear on the whopping tracklist, the extent of which you can check out below.
And Christmas in July hasn’t wrapped up quite yet. Hold out for next Friday, August 2nd, for the final Beastie Boys digital rollout of Shake Your Rump and Looking Down the Barrel Of A Gun remix EPs.
