If you've listened to any kind of recorded music in the last 30 years, chances are you've heard the Beastie Boys - essentially its own genre of music - which combined many influences to redefine what we thought could be possible. Without taking away from the creative genius of the Beastie Boys themselves, it must be acknowledged that a primary component of the eclectic nature of those “hit” records (Check Your Head, Ill Communication, Hello Nasty) was and is the man known as "Money Mark" Ramos Nishita. In this video, we experience a portion of Money Mark’s fearlessly innovative spirit as he shows us some of his junk. Enjoy a peek into the studio of a natural inventor; someone whose collaborative temperament blurs the boundaries between electronics and music.
