Dynomite D is best known to Beastie
Boys' fans for his beats on the 1995 DJ
Hurricane/Beastie Boys track Four Fly Guys.
Found on both the Jerky Boys Soundtrack as well as
the DJ Hurricane Grand Royal Records release The Hurra,
Four Fly Guys secured a working relationship
between Dynomite D and producer Mario
Caldato Jr. To this day Mario and Dynomite D remain
friends. But, Dynomite Ds work with the Grand Royal
family does not end there...
Marks 1998 pop masterpiece Push the Button
proves a difficult work to improve upon, yet two remixes
stand out as being as good or better than the original versions.
The Dust Brothers remix
of Maybe Im Dead and Dynomite Ds
remix of Push the Button both truly add another
dimension to the pair of already masterfully crafted songs.
Dynomite Ds Push the Button Espionage Remix
was only released as a free MP3 download, which only adds
to its electronic appeal.
With many Beastie Boys fans following
the solo career of keyboardist Money Mark, it is not a far
stretch to get into the music of turntable genius Kid Koala.
More than likely you have already seen Kid Koala live in
concert, since he toured with Money Marks band and
the Beastie Boys during the 1998 North American tour in
support of Hello
Nasty. Over the years, Kid Koala and Dynomite D
have worked together on several tracks. They just completed
the second Bombay The Hardway project. Yet, most
notably is the track No Excuses on Dynomite
Ds By The Way, which is available on both vinyl
and compact disc from his website as well as from Slabco
Another showcase of Dynomite Ds
work is the newest album from Seattle based rapper Kirk
Dubb. If you have not heard of Kirk Dubb or his flow, you
are seriously missing out. Kirk and Dynomite D are perhaps
the greatest one-two punch in underground hip-hop today.
Booze and Madness features Kirk Dubbs alcohol
inspired rhymes mixed with Dynomite Ds creative beats.
If you miss the days of Licensed
to Ill, Kirk Dubbs disc may be the refuge
you have been longing for. To order Booze and Madness,
Kirk's website is the fastest method.
You probably know someone that is
the "cool kid". The person that had Eminems
Slim Shady EP back when he was still unsigned talent.
The person that always seems to know of a song that is just
amazing, yet remains a well-kept secret in the music world.
A "cool kid" owns Kirk Dubbs compact disc
Booze and Madness, and has both a disc of Dynomite
Ds By The Way as well as a vinyl copy to maintain
