"Bootleg Beats" takes classic KPM tracks by Hawkshaw, Mansfield, Pearson etc. and gives them the remix treatment. Some of you may view this as being sacrilegious but in my opinion the results are pretty good, especially the mixes by The Karminsky Experience and Si Begg. Library music has been used as sample fodder for many years so it's good to hear the original material placed at the forefront here. Highlights include the laid back "Midnight Manoeuvres", Si Begg's take on "Funky Fanfare" and the excellent "Teenage Renegade" by Justin Langlands. Alan Hawkshaw is featured heavily with his trademark organ numbers making a good fit for this concept ( probably the best example is "Original Mania" which uses "Organ Mania" from KPM 1027 ). You can find a similar album available for download here.

It would seem that this entire album is featured in the game "Saints Row 3"
