Mash-ups are a mixed bag. Sometimes they fail to meet your initial expectation, and other times they hit the spot as a perfect dance mix of familiar artists with every hook complimenting each other. Toronto music producer Coins delivered the latter with his full album mashup of dance music icons Daft Punk and alt rap legends Beastie Boys. The album titled ‘Daft Science’ perfectly blends the rhymes of MCA, Mike D, and Ad-Rock, the turntable magic of Mix Master Mike, and the hypnotic hip-shaking slickness of the French robots. It’s immediately clear on one listen, this kicks all the butts. The best part is the entire album is online for FREE, listen to the whole thing below.
Considering the passing of Adam Yauch due to cancer in 2012 marked the end of the Beastie Boys, this is a warm reminder of why their music is eternally fun. Maybe this can also serve as another reason for Daft Punk fans to salivate over those tour rumors we’ve been hearing about.
