Mick Boogie follows up on his behind-the-screen impressions for the Beastie Boys with this mixtape to honor the group and their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this past week. Mick Boogie also worked with acclaimed photographer Jonathan Mannion for the accompanying artwork for the 80-minute mixtape titled Grand Royal. In Mick Boogie’s own words:
In honor of the Beastie Boys being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last week… I thought it’s finally the right time to do a Beasties mixtape. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time… something people have asked me to do for a long time, actually… but I wanted it to mean something. Now, it’s finally the right time.
I present to you Grand Royal. 80 minutes of my favorite Beastie Boys rarities, remixes, demos, live versions, out-takes, and more. If you’re a Beasties fan, I guarantee you find something new and exciting on this mix!
