Electronic, Hip-Hop | Fela Kuti – Water No Get Enemy (Majestry Remix)

Posted by on January 21, 2013

Fela KutiThis is a first, I had no idea anyone else knew who Fela Kuti was. For those that didn’t know, he is probably one of the coolest producers from the 1980s. He started 8 record labels which include MCA (which is now Universal) and JVC, was one of the top Civil Rights activists of the 1970s, and he is the pioneer of Afrobeat music. Afrobeat is a blend of Jazz and Soul, which lead to the eventual creation of Hip-Hop. Majestry picked a classic of his to remix and came through with this incredible future-beat, Hip-Hop instrumental. This remix is a must have.

Cover, Featured | Beastie Boys – Fight For Your Right (Easy Does It MCA Tribute)

Posted by on May 14, 2012

The recent passing of Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys is a great loss for the music industry. MCA was a musical innovator who transcended the East Coast/West Coast rivalry with an infectious brand of sabotage that will never be matched. Easy Does It holds a special place for the Beastie Boys in their hearts, and credits them as a huge inspiration for their work. As such, they have put together this tribute to MCA, and according to Easy Does It:

“Fight For Your Right” by the Beastie Boys “was the first cover song we ever learned as a band, wayyy back in the day. So it was only right that we paid proper homage & respect. These guys shaped our lives, straight up…we’re just some kids that wanna rap to guitars too. In true Beastie Boys spirit, we dressed up as characters from their iconic music videos and had a bunch of fun on camera. If his legacy can be perpetuated just .00001 % more – by people watching our video, then we did our job.

I’d say Easy Does It definitely did their job, check the video and see for yourself.

It’s that time again, this week Timeflies pays tribute to Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch (MCA), who passed away Friday from a three-year battle with cancer. Rez does a sick job sampling “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” by the Beastie Boys adding his electro touch. Cal pulls topic related words out of a bowl, executing another one of his signature freestyles. Mad respect to these guys for doing this one, too necessary!
