Max Tannone is a producer, DJ, mashup artist from New
York City.. On Mic Check 1234! Tannone has put together ten mash-ups of punk and
hip hop classics. Now admittedly I know very little about hip hop and
what I do know was all released prior to 1993, so half of this record
is completely alien to me. That having been said, Mic Check 1234! is awesome! I'm a sucker for a good mash-up,
so this is right up my alley. Plus a record
that takes from The Clash, Ramones, Black Flag, X, and Operation Ivy, just to
name a few, can't be bad. And this isn't bad at all.
