RIYL: MCA, Mike D & Ad Rock
Label: Calibro 35
This ain’t a mirage. Â Italian funk meets the rock-fused hip hop of Ill CommunicationÂ era Beastie Boys. Â That may sound a little odd, but the pairing makes a lot of sense. Â Calibro 35’s blend of vintageÂ exploitation soundtracks and astroglide grooves have already been sampled by hip hop greats like Dr. Dre and Jay-Z, and The Beastie Boys’ love of 70s funk samples just beckoned this project to exist. Â Now it does.
Everyone loves Sabotage, right? Â The video is legendary, the lyrics are all genius…it’s The Beasties in top form. Â Calibro 35 replaced the original instrumental withÂ their unique brand of rockin’ funk, and the results sound likeÂ MCA, Ad Rock and Mike D standing in the middle of a sweaty porn scene, shaking up PBRs and spraying them all over the set, the starlets and the fluffers.
The B-side includes the instrumental, so you can spit your own rhymes over the beat or just turn the lights down and invite the neighbors over for a night they won’t soon forget. Â Calibro 35 originally released this last year and the demand was so high, they made a few more. Â And by a few, I mean 50. Â It’s time to get ill, n’est pas?
