[Mashup] The Hood Internet – It’s Still About Falling (Haim x Robotaki)

The Hood Internet
It's Still About Falling (Haim x Robotaki)

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen The Hood Internet on these pages, but the mashup maestros are looking to kick off 2014 the proper way with their brand new mashup of Haim and Robotaki. The Chicago based production duo are well known for their crazy combinations, but who in a million years could’ve ever seen this pairing working? “Falling”–one of our favorite tracks of 2013–was already pretty rhythmic on its own, but after mixing in the funkadelic electronic synths of Robotaki’s “It’s Still About You,” it becomes a whole different animal. Check out the spectacular mashup above, and don’t forget to treat yourself with a free download.

[Hip-Hop] ShowYouSuck – Dude Bro

ShowYouSuck joins the ranks of Chitown’s finest with his debut EP, Dude Bro. Despite what the title might lead you to believe, Dude Bro is nothing like the frat rap that’s currently flooding the internet right now. Instead what we have is a cavalcade of impressive tracks that acutely demonstrate the Treated Crew representative’s versatility as an emcee. Although the project is rather short at only six songs, each one brings something fresh to the table. From the playfully nostalgic lead single “80’s Boobs,” to the supremely slick sounds of “All Wavy Everything,” and the galvanizing punk-rock inspired “Awesome,” there’s something to please just about everybody here. That diversification in styles can largely be attributed to the eclectic group of collaborators on the project which include The Hood Internet, Mike Jaxx, Peter Cottontale, P.O.S., Unstoppable Death Machines, and even more. Stream the full EP below, and if you like what you hear, make sure to support the album on iTunes.

[MP3 Playlist] The Chill Dojo #47

Chill Dojo number 47 may seem a little smaller than the massive playlists from recent weeks, but that’s to be expected with the summer music kicking off with such a tremendous pace. It’s only the start of August, so rest-assured there’s plenty more summer to come, and we’re bringing you the best of the chill offerings around.

And starting off this selection is an uplifting remix of the stunning Ellie Goulding, courtesy of the ever-versatile At Dawn We Rage. Well-known for a harder brand of electronic music, the group will every so often explore their downtempo style, which makes for great dojo features. The buildup in this track could easily have taken the heavier bass-filled route as many Ellie Goulding remixes do, so it was pleasantly surprising to hear they opted for a restrained chill approach over an ‘insane drop’. No surprises what to expect with this next one though, because when you have the vocals of Miguel with Blackbird Blackbird on the remix, it’s bound to be soulful and sexy. The slower future style of sound is a different direction for the American producer though, but one that is definitely hot right now. Also a topic of sexiness and big things right now is AlunaGeorge, and Canada’s Pat Lok has certainly done his bit to bring that to another level with a blissful edit of ‘Outlines’. It’s groovy, vibe-intense goodness together with the voice of Aluna Francis, so what’s not to love? If that’s still not hot enough for your August, we’ve also got the latest re-worked version of Goldroom’s summer classic ‘Fifteen’, along with some fresh summer funk from Civilian in a way that only the French know how.

We’re still well and truly entrenched in our favorite time of the year, but we’ll never give up on those summertime feelings no matter what the calendar says. Peace out.

The Hood Internet – Grown Up Has No Trigger (Danny Brown x Dirty Projectors)

The Hood Internet, super saiyan mash-up producers from Chicago excel at paring the newest indie rock songs with some of the best hip/hop cuts and verses into a refreshing balanced blend. Their latest is titled “Grown Up Has No Trigger” combining “Grown Up” from Detroit rapper Danny Brown and the experimental sounds of Dirty Projectors with “Gun Has No Trigger”

Short and precise, The Hood Internet bring the best of both worlds fitting Danny Brown’s verses perfectly with the instrumentation from the Dirty Projectors. Not always a huge fan of mashups but this absolutely has to reach more people. Enjoy!

The Hood Internet: The Mixtape Volume Five

Aaron Brink and Steve Reidell of The Hood Internet have released the 5th volume of their mixtape series. If you’ve never experienced The Hood Internet, then you are bound to be an instant fan. These two are known for their insanely clever mash-ups and mixes. The first time I heard them live was SXSW last year at this tiny tiny venue. Then this past summer I had the opportunity to see them again in Dallas at The Loft. It was packed! Between my girlfriends and I, we danced off every calorie we took in in alcohol that night! So much fun!

Best part about “The Hood”? You can’t really ever get enough of them. I always want to see them. It’s an instant dance party. Grab your best girlfriends.. get ready for a good time and check out “The Hood”! You won’t be sorry. I promise! I can’t wait to see them again this year at SXSW. Yes, I’ll be going to see them again. They are that much fun and they are probably the most down to Earth guys just hanging out with the crowds. I might be a slight fan. Just a slight one.

[Mashup Masterminds] The Hood Internet


Every time the word Mashup Masterminds pops in my head (the few times it does) I can only think of The Hood Internet. The Chicago-based duo specializes in mashups of hip-hop (from the mainstream to the underground) with indie rock…. and they are quite GOOD! The blogophere not only loves them for shining a light into indie music but amount of quality mash ups they put out every week is short of amazing. Their latest wonder is the fusion of M.I.A.’s sharp witty vocals with the calming melow pop tunes of Vampire Weekend. Enjoy!
