Today was fantastic. Spent hours at the Cincinnati Zoo seeing baby animals doing incredible things — it was the baby giraffe’s second day out! — and then ate at a fantastic local restaurant. What should the third part to this great day be? A mix of some of my favorite rappers by one of my favorite remix artists. Z-Trip really put his all into this fantastic 23-minute mix of classic and new Beastie Boys tracks. Super thumbs up for starting with “Paul Revere.”
In addition to the fact that he was asked by the Beasties to do this mix, here are three others that he wanted to share:
Factoid #1 – This is a real Beasties, Z-Trip fan.
Factoid #2- Z-Trip uses a bit of the WBLS show he first heard the Beasties on in the megamix.
Factoid #3- Z-Trip had the opening slot on the Beasties/Rage Against The Machine tour in 2000. Then RATM went on hiatus and the tour was canceled.
