HERE IT IS...THE PAUL'S BOUTIQUE MIX

About 20 hours later, it's complete. It damn near killed me. Seriously. You know, when you first listen to the album, it's hard to really get a feel for how crafty the Dust Brothers were until you start peeling apart individual samples and you hear there's two beats and three bass lines playing simultaneously. They just don't make 'em like they used to. Paul's Boutique is so sick that they'll listen to it a century from now and just shake their head at how ill it is. Not many records and pull off the backflips that Paul's can. In fact, the challenge in mixing it down is so much more not how you use the samples, but of the 100 samples that make up the record, which ones do you use? You can't use them all or else it'd be unlistenable. I guess that's essentially why I like this record so much. What other record can use Johnny Cash, James Brown, Sweet, the shower scene from Psycho, Alice Cooper, Funky 4+1, Malcolm McLaren and Kool and the Gang in one record and sound perfect? And that's only a small sampling of the artists featured within the 53 minutes that comprised the original album released back in July of 1989.

Some of those records I sometimes fear will go completely forgotten and the appreciation for the accomplishment that is Paul's will somehow become diluted or overshadowed as music progresses (or regresses) into the future. Like, somehow, records are completely omitted from the encyclopedias. Some freakish glitch in the database or wrinkle in time. Then I hear that it's getting the "anniversary" treatment from Capitol. Like even if this entire music industry completely fizzles away, some dude in a dark corner in the Capitol offices says, "Wait, we gotta finally remaster Paul's," and then, somehow, I'm relieved to know that some cats out there still car. I heard the new release and, well, I'm not impressed. The record's dope as it is. What will remastering accomplish? Yeah, I know, it's quiet but that's what the volume knob is for, dummy. Stop tripping.
I guess I chose to celebrate Paul's contributions to hip hop by giving it The Root Down treatment. Full of breaks, B-sides and that good ol' Beastie sound, this mix clocks in at just under two hours. Put it on, cool out and enjoy the sounds of the Beasties. And, yes, the mix's cover art is the street corner that once featured a small clothing store called Paul's Boutique in NYC as featured on the original cover art.
Ya'll ain't even ready. I swear it. You ain't ready. But if you think you are...
This is one of those mixes that almost puts you in retirement. My lovely wife isn't talking to me. My dogs threatened suicide. I contemplated a crack habit. But I'm back. And, after listening to the album for the last three weeks as I worked on the mix, I can finally get back to my regularly scheduled program. What that is, I'm not sure, but there is one. Once this gets out there, I think I'm gonna take a couple of months off and get to some of the other items on the list. Maybe I'll do the sauerkraut next.
So here's your tracklist. Yes, they're all in there. And it lasts still under two hours. And if you think that's impressive, remember that it's only about half of what was originally used to make the album. Now give up on your stupid little career as the "next Dr. Dre." Get a day job sacking groceries, you pupil.

My friend and I were recently discussing about technology, and how integrated it has become to our daily lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes cheaper, the possibility of copying our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.

You have to help me! I've been compiling a master list of every sample on Paul's Boutique for years, triple checking every internet and book suggestion, deciphering every lyrical reference, and so on. Your mixtape was great but it contained one song that you didn't list that is totally a sample I haven't heard anyone place before. It's a simple 808 kick snare combo that is slowly joined by a morose sounding organ over the Burundi Black drums, can you please please let me know what it is?
