I’ve definitely been posting tons of mashups and remixes lately, but I honestly can say the talent is never ending with these guys. This song is not that “fresh” but it’s definitely worth checking out. Hood Internet (aka Aaron Brink/ ABX and Steve Reidell/ STV SLV) have been grinding out mashups (a mix of hiphop and indie rock) from their home base in Chicago since 2007, but most recently have caught my ear. Out of their literally 400 million mixes (*Disclaimer* I haven’t listened to them all yet), I love their mashup “Pumped Up Kicks” ft Hollywood Holt and Billie “Wildcat” Jean from their mixtape “The Mixtape Volume Four” in 2009.

Their blog, “The Hood Internet” created such a fan base that they now perform live DJ sets of their tracks (check them out in Chicago at the North Coast Music Festival in September). The duo’s most recent mixtape “Mishka Presents: Trillwave” (2010) has their popular track “Barry Bonds 1993”, which is a mash up of Kayne West, Lil Wayne & Signify.

Become a fan of The Hood Internet or keep checking out FM for their features on Mashup Mondays!
