Completely Instrumental. Due out June 26. Said to have influences as diverse as The Slits, Gang Of Four and even Adrock's own BS 2000. Parts of the album have been said to sound remniscent of Pink Panther soundtracks, crossed with The Junkyard Band. There's even a sitar in there.

The album was recorded with Keyboard Money Mark and Alfredo Ortiz. The tracklisting, from www.beastieboys.com :

1. B For My Name
2. 14th St. Break
3. Suco De Tangerina
4. The Gala Event
5. Electric Worm
6. Freaky Hijiki
7. Off The Grid
8. The Rat Cage
9. The Melee
10. Dramastically Different

5 Burroughs was trash on production. I just D/L'd hello nasty a few days back cuz I couldnt find my copy anywhere.

Beasties got great ideas as far as instrumentation goes.

True. Even if 5 boroughs wasn't to everybodys tastes, they have a fund of ideas on all fronts that most bands can't fuck with.

No Mixmaster, and the music is all live, all the way apparently. I've read a review of it that claims parts of it are fit for sampling, but that it's different to their other instrumentals in that the new ones are extremely dense.

Mixmaster is touring with them, when they do hip-hop sets.

clown.


beastie boys have more musical talent and creativy than most
(and i really stress most, just turn on your tv or radio and you know what im saying) rappers in the game. the mear fact that they dont give a fuck and do what they want on albums, but do it well, says it right there.

by the way their instrumental songs are fucking good. but instrumental doesnt mean no lyrics, although i havent heard either way, just means they are playing their instruments for the actual music.

should be dope though.

I think Dusk was just asking if it sucks.

I haven't heard the whole album. But I know there's no vocals on it. Go to www.beastieboys.com now, there's some strange shit on the front page.

The Mix-Up

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BEASTIE BOYS GO INSTRUMENTAL, AGAIN
The Mix-Up
All-Instrumental Album Out June 26
Mike "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "MCA" Yauch and Adam "Adrock" Horovitz have confirmed a June 26 release date for their seventh studio album, The Mix-Up, on Capitol Records.
The Mix-Up is Beastie Boys' first-ever full album of all-new instrumental material. The follow-up to 2004's To The 5 Boroughs, The Mix-Up features Diamond, Horovitz and Yauch back on drums, guitar and bass, with able assistance from Keyboard Money Mark and percussionist Alfredo Ortiz, on 12 brand new wordless, sample-less, scratchless originals. Sure to please fans of the instrumental cuts from Check Your Head and Ill Communication and the cult hit compilation album made up largely of those tracks, The In Sound From Way Out!, The Mix-Up finds NYC's favorite sons drawing on one of their arsenal's primary strengths and pushing it into bold new directions.


Nice, I love their rapping songs, but I love their instrumentals just as much. They are just a very versitile band. Wu needs to get on some shit like this, not playing instruments necessarily, but just making good music. The beastie boys dont give a fuck how many records they sell, but thats what makes them still viable and still allows them to sell records ironically enough.

"I might stick around, or I might be a fad, but i wont sell myself for no t.v. ad."-MCA

^That about sums them up.

06-25-2007, 11:13 AM
yea i heard the leak. definatly buying the album. great instrumentals. there is a small chance i heard they do a rerelease as well with guest vocals, but i doubt that.

come on ben, regressing? why does no lyrics signal a regress. no other hip hop artists other than the roots, that i know of, can play their own shit.

and what they made is actual music, actual good music. something not many artists put out today. they are more than just rappers.

Surley a dissapointment because i like hearing them rap, but to me their instrumental stuff is just as good in a different way. And its not like a new thing, theyve had instrumental songs on albums going back to 93.

I havent heard this for sure, but i think a small part of it might be to get an album out, albiet something they wanted to do, but something to help fullfill one of their mandatory contractual albums.
