So, have you ever wanted to know what the story was with (my favorite Beastie Boys album) Check Your Head? What was the story behind that ‘Watcha Want’ track? Actually, it probably not what you’d think.. Take a listen to the audio commentary here, and learn what the Beastie Boys were upto during the recording process of their best albums. You’ll learn, straight from the source, what the deal is.
I found these videos because of a good friend of mine, Madeline New, who was kind to enough to point in this direction. I thought I’d share these vidoes, they’re a lot of fun to listen to if you’re a longtime fan of the Beastie Boys. Or, for any modern electronic / hip hop music producer, at all; you really get a comprehensive sense of how all the songs were made, and what was involved in the process.
The Beastie Boys had a huge impact on me, and I know they had a hug impact on a lot of folks out there, as well. A whole generation grew up listening to them. I credit them with being the group that got me into hip hop (as far as listening – as well as in my music production)!
So they are, a handful of Beastie Boys gems! Paul’s Boutique, Check Your Head, Ill Communication, and Hello Nasty. Please enjoy. I guarentee you will learn a lot from these!
Check Your Head
I hope these videos help give insight into one of the dopest hip hop groups in history!
