<em>House</em> Playlist: Beastie Boys, Katy B, & Sade

Beastie Boys, “Make Some Noise.” “Make Some Noise” is your archetypal Beastie Boys tune, with the three MCs trading verses at a breakneck pace in their inimitable punchy style. The track also boasts their funkiest instrumental since the Check Your Head days, infusing The Mix-Up’s fuzzy jazz with some much-needed dynamism. Once again, it appears as though the Beasties are operating outside of hip-hop’s voguish trappings: no ridiculously muffled basslines, no ’80s synths, no topical buzzwords. “Make Some Noise” is three seasoned veterans waxing lyrical on everything and nothing with the energy and fervor of men half their age.
