Mick Boogie gives Adele an 80s makeover (Free Download)

    U.K. songstress Adele may reach back to the jazz era for inspiration, but its the early hip hop era that the Brooklyn, New York remix master Mick Boogie was going for when he gave her debut album 19 a reinterpretation. His take on the album, called Adele: 1988, mixes the singer’s lush voice and flowing melodies with the funky beats of late 1980s hip hop and samples from the likes of rap pioneer Slick Rick.


    Its available as a free download and can also be sampled on his MySpace page (scroll down to find it). By the way, anyone looking for yet another side of Adele should check out the way she acoustified herself for a live performance on the college radio station WTMD.
