    The cats at Ninja Tune records have come up trumps yet again with their excellent re-interpretation of the Beastie Boys legendary Paul’s Boutique album presented recently on their Solid Steel Radio Show and now available for download from Soundcloud.

    There’s really not much we can tell you about the original album that’s not already been said but suffice to say DJs Moneyshot, Food and Cheeba have excelled themselves with this mix of the original samples combined with commentary from the Beastie Boys, vintage interview clips and plenty more on top.
