The Ultimate Beastie Boys Sample Source Collection

 photo bbbbbbbb_zpsmtue2gtx.gif
Many years ago (more than I care to remember), I began a quest to personally track down every record and song that had ever been sampled by the Beastie Boys. I was inspired by the classic Ultimate Breaks & Beats series as it introduced me to songs that I had only heard in sampled form, and needless to say, hearing these tracks in their entirety as opposed to a quick snippet, stab, scratch, or loop opened my mind to a whole new musical experience. While digging in the bins at Uncle Sam's in 1996, I discovered the white-label/bootleg pressing of B-Boy Breaks:12 Original Tunes as Sampled By The Beastie Boys:

Despite only twelve tracks, it was a great start, but hardly scratched the surface as there were hundreds of other samples that needed to be sourced and tracked down. In 1998, the internet was becoming more robust and though various boards and fan sites, I was able to start compiling a list of all the samples that were used on a per-album basis. By this point, I had only tracked down a handful of records, CDs, and tapes, but it wasn't long before I was trading digital tracks with like minded sample-nerds that I had met online. Then, in 2005, I released the prototype of what would become the Beastie Boys Sample Source Collection. With less than seventy tracks, it definitely needed some serious work, and to make things worse, the quality of the tracks that I had personally ripped from vinyl or cassette were less than stellar, in most cases, around 128kbps. Likewise, many the digital tracks which I had acquired online were just as bad, if not worse ranging in quality from mediocre to piss poor. From that point forward, I made quality a much higher priority and implemented a more efficient process for ripping vinyl/cassettes (better cartridges, better deck, better software, and interface). I also made it a point to only trade/acquire high quality audio and fully avoid the dreaded web-rips which were usually around 64 to 96kbps. Thanks to Soulseek, Discogs, eBay, and a bunch of really cool cats that I've met over time, the project continued to move forward and it wasn't long before all of the ducks were in a row and it was time to release the beast(ie)! In 2007, I posted the first official version of the compilation, and continued to make updates throughout the next few years as additional samples were sourced and found.

After a several year hunt, I finally acquired a copy of  Modern Dynamic Physical Fitness Activities which was sampled in Body Movin' and for all intents and purposes; it was my holy grail and the final addition to the collection. Obviously not every sample or drum break can or ever will be identified, but this is about as close as it's gonna get! With the completion of this eighteen year long project, I want to personally thank each and every single person out there that has lent insight, shared knowledge, or provided me with any of the tracks that were used to compile this amazing piece of history. It goes without saying that much love, gratitude, and respect is owed to the Beastie Boys for introducing me (and you) to some amazing music via sampling that may otherwise not be heard, let alone acknowledged in this light.

If you've downloaded this collection prior to December 1st, 2014, it should be deleted immediately, and replaced with this version as the quality and content has increased tenfold. As it stands, it's 286 full-length tracks which equates to just over 22 hours worth of amazing music which was sampled by the Beastie Boys from Licensed to Ill up until To The 5 Boroughs. If you're a stickler for quality, you'll be happy to know that all of the tracks are encoded between 256kbps and 320kbps, with a hefty majority being the latter.

At the present time, the files are being hosted via MEGA, Uploadable, and Uploaded, but I will try to add more mirrors as time passes. As is always the case, I strongly suggest grabbing these as quickly as possible because I don't foresee them being available very long. If anybody experiences any difficulty downloading from any of these hosting sites or if the links are dead, please contact me via email and I will directly link you with the files.

The complete track listing:

Anquette/J. Grey ‎- Throw The P + Miami 12'' (1986)

Get Ready For That High Powered Ghetto Bass!

Anquette's classic Throw The P is an well-known staple of Miami Bass, as is Steven J. Grey's track, Miami, but what makes this 12 inch such a gem are the instrumental versions, especially the aforementioned Miami. If you're looking for that old-nasty, trunk rattling sound; look no further.

Oh shit! This is gonna be a must-watch whenever it comes out!

Charlie Rouse - Two Is One (1974)

So dope!

I've been digging this album for a while now, and after a revisit over the weekend, it still stands the proverbial test of time. Also, for those keeping track, the bass and drums from Hopscotch were sampled by the Beastie Boys in B-Boys Makin With The Freak Freak. Enjoy this groovy masterpiece at 320kbps!

On Wine: How to Select & Serve (1964)

Delicious again, Peter.

Beastie Boy fans and wine snobs will rejoice as Peter Sichel, Warren Moran, and Kay Lande break down just about everything that you need to know about wine by way of an 18 minute Q&A session. Once you have the basics of wine selection and pairing down, you can flip the record and check out some nice classical music which will hopefully set the mood for wine soaked shindig. Cheers!

Long Fellow ‎– This is Penis 12'' (1989)

I'm giving you penis...

I'm not sure what to say about this one and more so, I'm not even sure how this made it's way into my record collection, but if you've ever heard Maurice's classic This is Acid, then this track should sound extremely familiar. The music is nearly identical, however Long Fellow has changed the vocals and replaced the word "acid" with the word "penis"; simple as that! I think I'm going to try to slip this into the mix the next time we have company over...

More Brains: A Return to the Living Dead

Do you ever fantasize...about being killed?

In 1985, the now classic Return of the Living Dead was released and it would serve as the first horror film that actually scared the shit out of me. Yes, I had seen The Omen, The Exorcist, and even Faces of Death, but for some reason, this campy (almost comedic) zombie flick struck a certain level of fear in me, mainly because I lived down the street from a cemetery. Once the movie hit the HBO circuit, and I began watching it on a regular basis, and as I did, the fear subsided and I soon found myself engrossed with the subtle nuances of the cast more so than the fear that the film was trying to project. The film became something of an obsession, and it wasn't long before I had most of the dialog memorized and could recite lines a the drop of a hat. Last night I was strolling the internet looking for a downloadable workprint of Return of the Living Dead when I stumbled upon this documentary on YouTube aptly titled More Brains: A Return to the Living Dead. As a fan of documentaries, this was executed perfectly and left no stone unturned, but as a fan of  Return to the Living Dead, it was possibly one of the greatest pieces ever produced! The stars of the film as well as the producers and directors break it down and literally walk you through the movie in a way that makes you feel that you were right there on the set. Simply put, if you're a fan of Return of the Living Dead, then you need to stop reading this and watch this documentary immediately!

Also, if you're a fan of the infamous Trioxin Theme, you'll be happy to know that the metal band Nocturnal Symphony recorded their own version and it sounds awesome:
