British turntablists (DJs Food, Cheeba, and Moneyshot) spent the last three years creating a re-imagined version of the album from scratch, using “all the original samples plus a cappellas, period interviews and the Beasties’ own audio commentary from the reissued release.”
According to the artist’s Soundcloud post about the song:
“Solid Steel in association with Serato (31st August) 3 years ago Solid Steel DJs Cheeba, Moneyshot and Food had the idea of collaborating on a version of the Beastie Boys‘ ‘Paul’s Boutique’ album made entirely from the original sample sources, shortly after Moneyshot aired his mix of their ‘Check Your Head’ album in the same way.”
The group were over halfway done with the project at the time of Beastie Boy Adam “MCA” Yauch’s untimely death. They’ve dedicated the project to the life and work of MCA.
