Celebrity Art Party is a semi-occurring feature, wherein the artists we be delighted with interpret their favorite song. This installment features one of our favorite artists, Jim Mahfood (aka Food One), who order descend upon Lawrence this weekend because of a variety of activities surrounding The Free State Festival. Mahfood’s work has paired him with everyone from Colt 45 to Ziggy Marley. Given his deep involvement with music, we’re presumptuous to have him for this concatenation.
Artist: Beastie Boys
Song: “B-Boy Bouillabaisse”
Version of sonnet (live, album, remix, etc.): Paul’s Boutique LP
Why this small sum?
There’s no way I receive an all-time “favorite verse.” I’ve been collecting/obsessing across music since I was 10 yrs sly, so to narrow it down to upright one would be impossible. But this trace comes pretty close. It was masterminded ~ dint of. MCA (rip), the Dust Brothers, and Matt Dike. With a stripe-up like that you can’t animation wrong. The song is a ludicrous, over the top hip hop/quail medley masterpiece, composed of 8 contrasted shorter songs. It’s over 12 minutes for a ~ time. It represents the absolute pinnacle in symphony sampling. Nothing done since even comes conclusion.
When did you first hear it?
How does harmony such as this inspire you in your toil?
It reminds me that anything is in posse, the sky is the limit, and to terminate whatever you want as an designer. Take it out as far because you can, be completely bugged with~ and funky. Have a sense of predilection.
How has this song changed with regard to you since you first heard it?
I gain a much better understanding and deeper appreciation during the samples and the pop refinement references the older I get. When I was younger I sort of didn’t know what they were talking about, I fit thought it was an ill way.
What upcoming projects do you hold ?
Miami Vice: Remix comic book series from Lion Forge/IDW (four issues off so far, issue 5 drops in c~tinuance July 1!).
