About Beastiemixes.com

      For the longest time I have been collecting Beastie Boys remixes,  I've collected over 2000+ so far.  Some of them are great, some not so great,  but they all have one thing in common.  They need a place where people can download them.  For some remixers this was their own website, for others it was a free file hosting service, or a temporary website.  And therein lies the problem.   The remixes that were hosted on temporary sites, or free file hosting sites like putfile,  or the likes were often never seen or heard again after the first batch of people downloaded it.  The file get's deleted off of the server after a period of time, then it's never uploaded again.  Thus the files are unavailable for people who are just starting to collect.

      I would like to make this site a place for people who don't want to bother with hunting down a way to get their files out to the public.  People who should be worrying about their next mix and not if their bandwidth allocation for the month is about to dry up.   I want this to be a place where you can reliably come and upload your mixes, and know that a year from now people will still be able to come here and get them,  and also new mixes by other people.

If you'd like to learn a little more about me and why I do this, I was recently interviewed by Beastiemania.com, and you can read the interview here.

Testimonials

I just want to say Thank you for everything you've done to make the Beastie Boys rarities easier to find and enjoy. I just discovered your website, but I'm not lying when I say I'm so grateful for what is available that I am tearing up just writing this. Holmes, you have my regards.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks in advance for the hosting space, think what you're doing is historically important, even if the RIAA would disagree.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks again for your work hard in making this all possible.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Btw, the site DOESN'T suck ..
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dude, Your site is looking great! I can see you've been getting better at design. Nice job! It's quite the community too! Good work, we all appreciate it.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The first time I saw your site was in November of 06. I almost shit myself. I have downloaded every track you have on the site (that I did not already have).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
just wanted to say that what you have done is awesome and its a great thing collatin all the mixes and havin no musical predujices and not carin about differing levels of ability etc and just puttin anythin thats a bboy mix is a brilliant thing. Keep it up mate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks so much for your hard work - over here in the UK people can be so cynical - but you guys just get on and do it. Love the attitude matey - :)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyway i want to thank you for your part in all of this. If it wasnt for beastiemixes, i would have stopped remixing the beasties a long time ago, and i probably would have continued with my other projects...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've been a huge fan of the b-boys since License to Ill and want to thank you for your work. When I found your site from a mention in "Wired" some time ago, I was stoked! One of the best rap groups of all time + killer remixes + easy to use site + free. You've gotta be shittin' me.

Anyhow, this is for sure what music is all about. Just wanted to drop you a thanks.

You are doing a great thing. I've been a beastie boys fan since I was about 14 or 15 (1986ish) and was floored when I went on their website for the first time a few months ago and saw the a cappellas posted. Not to mention the online community of remixers.

     In closing,  I want to thank the Beastie Boys for all the great music they give us. And a big thanks to all the DJ's and Remixers who Rip, Mash, Scratch & Remix that shit up and give us new and interesting ways of hearing the same songs in a very different light.
