Morning Hype! New Mike D Music!(Yup, THAT Mike D.)

Besides a new memoir from surviving Beastie Boys Mike D and Ad-Rock on the horizon we are also blessed with some new music from Mike D this morning, a mix he made for fashion designer friend Humberto's Kenzo Summer 2014 collection. With Humberto claiming hardcore music of the late 70s and early 80s as his influence for the collection Mike D followed suit and put together a jam of some the best riffs of the era and jammed it out with some vintage synths and disco beats, making for a surprisingly enjoyable ten minutes. Listen to it below and instantly forget why you thought the new Daft Punk was anything but another boring  EDM record.
