Making Music: Adrock Interview (Beastie Boys)...

Beastie Boys fans and music fans in general will enjoy these random anecdotes from hip-hop pioneer Adam "Adrock" Horovitz. Hear how Adam decided to buy his first drum machine, how he discovered LL Cool J, or his thoughts on the art of sampling existing records.

In collaborations with Rick Rubin and The Dust Brothers, the Beastie Boys have birthed some of the most infectious and fun beats of the last 25 years. From the early 2000s, on a recommendation from band-mate Mike D, Adam Horovitz (Adrock) started making beats in Reason and instantly ditched his venerable SP1200. Reason has been at the heart of their beat laboratory ever since.
