Mick Boogie + Adele - 1988

Now I have to admit I had never heard of Adele until this week which is crazy cause I love artists like her and I generally find out about them early...but Mick Boogie just introduced me...Now MB is known to put together some great mixtapes..i.e. 'Viva la Hova' and Kanye's 'Graduation' Mixtape(one of my faves all time)..and this one is right up there in the Originality scale...

Now as to Adele..Shes like a mix of Amy Winehouse and Lykke Li...very original style..They consider her the next Amy Winehouse in the U.K...those are massive crack infested boots to fill though..

from Mick Boogie:

'Fresh off the success of the internationally-acclaimed Viva La Hova, the MB team have reunited to introduce rock star Adele (nominated for 4 Grammy awards) to a whole new audience.

Adele's album 19 set trends and created influence in the pop, rock and international worlds. But what would happen if the vocals and instruments of 19 were combined with the hip-hop sensibilities of the late 1980s, considered by many hip-hop's golden age?

The result is the new release from Mick Boogie... Adele: 1988.

More than a mashup, it's a complete reinterpretation of Adele's album as only Mick Boogie and friends can do.'
