2008 Grammy Award Winner for:
• 'Best Pop Instrumental Album'
The New York rap rebels find their rock roots on their new album The Mix-Up.
The Mix-Up is Beastie Boys' first-ever full album of all-new instrumental
material. The follow-up to 2004's To The 5 Boroughs, The Mix-Up features
Diamond, Horovitz and Yauch back on drums, guitar and bass, with able assistance
from Keyboard Money Mark and percussionist Alfredo Ortiz, on 12 brand new
wordless, sample-less, scratchless originals. Sure to please fans of the
instrumental cuts from Check Your Head and Ill Communication and the cult hit
compilation album made up largely of those tracks, The In Sound From Way Out!,
The Mix-Up finds NYC's favorite sons drawing on one of their arsenal's primary
strengths and pushing it into bold new directions.
