Yes, yes, y’all; to the beat y’all

Put on your Adidas First track suit, dust down your pair of Superstars, fix your Kangol and pop some d-cells in that monster Sharp boombox you got in the attic. Have we got an electric bugaloo-tastic posting for you. First off check out this Transformer breakdance Flash animation – the soundtrack is back to the 80’s block rockin’ electro. Thrill at the robots uprock and floor work, gasp as they change into a ghettoblaster (that any Cazal wearing homie would have been proud of) and back again.

Beasties back on another microphone rampage

The Beastie Boys return with their new album To The Five Boroughs and a first single Ch-Check it Out – a wholesome slice of fresh b-boy goodness for y’all. Cold slammin’. Great single – classic material with funk, beats, lyrics and infectious rhymes. Their website has a DiVX encoded video (Mac OS X users need to go to VideoLAN.org to get a suitable freeware player), e-cards to spread the gospel, lyrics to sing along and quarter of an hour interview with all three of them in the studio (Real Player format video)

Definitely one for the birthday list!
