I decided to post up a sample of a Beastie Boys cut as another RIP shot out to MCA. This one comes courtesy of the Moog Machine. When the Moog synthesizer gained popularity, alot of groups tried to capitalize by re-playing current hits of the time. Most of the results are pretty cool and the Moog Machine is no exception. What makes this album hit harder than most is that it contains a live drummer, rather than the tinny/thin drum-like sounds a Moog can create.
Even the most novice digger should be familiar with Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In made famous by The 5th Dimension from the Hair musical. Around 1:26 minutes into the song, the break used for the Beastie Boys “Get It Together” featuring Q-Tip kicks in. For the bonus trivia question, the vocal sample “Oh My God” from Blahzay Blahzay’s “Danger” is from the Beastie Boys song.
