Hey. It’s prettymuch May. Can I slack any more? I figure, since the year is nearly half over, I’ll just post 12 or so albums I liked over the last 12 or some months…
The Hood Internet – The Hood Internet vs. Chicago Mixtape
(#2 of 12 in no particular order)
Comprised of DJ STV SLV and ABX, The Hood Internet represent the future of the mash-up. Gone are the days where you mix one song with another song just because you can, or because they share a strange time signature, or because they make a hilarious song title. Technology is such (and GirlTalk has shown) that there is a way to mix any song with any another song and make it sound good. The next step, the step Hood Internet is going in, is voluntary restraint for the sake of clarity and craft — in this case, restricting the mix to only bands that share the city they all hail from. Also, it’s my City, so I’m biased.
The best part? It’s a Mash-Up so it’s FREE
