BEASTIE BOYS Released Their Triumphant Album ‘HELLO NASTY’ Twenty Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

12 July 2018


Album: HELLO NASTY – their fifth longplayer

Released: 14 July 1998 – 20 years ago

ROLLING STONE wrote: ‘With their fifth proper album, a playfully mature Beastie record
(if that’s possible), they turn the focus back toward hip-hop — there’s not one hárdcore punk song here, but with an understanding of how to conflate their two largest influences into one smooth-flowing package. Imagine a sonic mix that’s about sixty-five to seventy percent the frenetic, sample-crazy hip-hop eclecticism of Paul’s Boutique and about twenty-five to thirty percent the funk-punk fun of III Communication. The Beasties, as innovative musicians and good citizens, contribute more to the hip-hop community than a lot of MCs.”

Score: 4/5 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME: Another dazzling record by The White New York Kings Of
with enough fuel for another 24-Hour Body-Movin’-Party

THREE TOP TRACKS: Intergalactic / Body Movin’ / Super Disco Breakin’
