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!
