MP3otW – Einstein on the Beast by dj BC

Filed under: MP3 of the Week by Nathan @ 3:52 pm

I don’t hate Philip Glass. But I hate boring music, and while he’s produced music I didn’t run screaming from, he is boring. So when I found this little ditty by dj BC (from his album Glassbreaks), I was kinda stoked.

Called Einstein on the Beast, it mixes excerpts from Glass’ opera Einstein on the Beach with the Beastie Boys rap Pass the Mic, from the most excellent Check Your Head. Not only does this make Philip’s music more palatable, but it makes me think that Enya could work if you remixed her with House of Pain. Or maybe Nana Mouskouri and Organized Rhyme.

Yeah, that would be sweet.

    I must be mental. I actually liked it.
    Your eclectic musical tastes never cease to amaze me.

    I thought you were a lost cause when you didn’t like The Velvet Underground & Nico (although you were redeemed by liking American Beauty and Loaded.)

    But there’s hope yet! I think it’s so cool that you liked that. I never did get you to listen to Shatner and I never heard what you thought about Stop Making Sense. Ah well, another time!

    To be honest, I like mellow stuff the most. Not Air Supply mellow…but melt-your-heart mellow.
    Must be a gurl thing. Have you heard anything by Howie Day? He’s my new favorite. His song Collide
    just does something for me… I’ve only heard it once and I’m hooked. I guess it’s the passion in
    his voice…again, a gurl thing. 😉

    C’mon, The Velvet Underground was a bit out of my league! But I enjoyed Einstein.

    I don’t remember Stop Making Sense…it’s all a blur. Got a link? Or who’s it by? I can look it up.
