CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A 3 WAY MIX: collaboration between DJ Food, DJ Cheeba & DJ Moneyshot.
3 years, 3 DJs and over 150 tracks in the making, ‘Caught In The Middle Of A 3-Way Mix’ remixes, recreates and reimagines the Beastie Boys’ tour de force and genre-defining sophomore album, Paul’s Boutique – and now this reworking of what some call the Sgt. Peppers’ of hip-hip is taking the stage in Orange Rooms as part of their World Tour!

Helmed by 3 DJs – FOOD, CHEBA and MONEYSHOT – this has been a homework project of epic proportions – more than just a MIXTAPE, it is a deeply affectionate, highly articulate love letter to a classic album, from a classic time, composed by peerless artists.
Paul’s Boutique sustained strut but also developed a kind of shimmying soulful expression. Teeming with samples, it can respectfully be described as much-loved bastard child of a thousand fathers. A list of samples runs at five pages and includes a wide and vast array of genres and artists ranging from well known artists such as Kool and The Gang, Chic, Tower Of Power, The Beatles, The Eagles, The Commodores, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC that resulted in the creation of a musical amalgamation that was not geared towards satisfying the commercial masses. Paul’s Boutique is legend, iconic not just in the hip-hop sphere, but far beyond.
Embarking on the near impossible mission, DJs FOOD, CHEBA and MONEYSHOT sorted through the labyrinthian mess of samples used on Paul’s Boutique and the sourced all original vinyl samples of all the tracks that the hip-hop trio and production crew The Dust Brothers used to create it. ‘Caught In The Middle Of A 3-Way Mix’ is the result, weaving together all the original samples plus a cappellas, period interviews and the Beasties’ own audio commentary from the reissued release into an electrifying audio-visual experience that is slick, fresh yet nostalgic, and completely unmissable.
