Maybe a Beastie Boys remix, maybe not

Uffie, an electropop artist on Ed Banger Records, recently posted a remix of a song from her upcoming album to her website. The remix is titled "MCs Can Kiss (Mike D Remix)" [free download HERE]. A Mike D remix, you ask? From my work on Beastiemania.com, I know that there is another artist who uses "Mike D" as his handle and that he remixes songs. I contacted both Uffie's and Beastie Boys' official peeps for clarification, and no one could confirm that the Mike D who remixed the song is Mr. Michael Diamond of Beastie Boys. So, maybe the song is a Mike D aka Sweet Lou remix, or maybe it's a Mike D aka the Other Guy remix. You decide.

Update: I finally got confirmation from the Beastie Boys camp. The remix is indeed Mike Diamond's work.

There can be only one.

It must be settled in Thunderdome.

Why would Mike do a remix for Uffie?

Busy P, the head of Ed Banger Records, is a Beastie Boys fan/friend. He could have wrangled the remix.

I found some of the other guy's remixes and now understand the confusion.

I updated the post. I received confirmation that the remix was done by Mike Diamond.
