Mashers of The Year – The Hood Internet

The Hood Internet is taking the remix and mash-up world by storm – and this is nothing new if you’re from Chicago or have been up on your blogroll. After impressing the industry at SXSW just a few weeks ago – they’ve embarked on a brief tour alongside Black Moth Super Rainbow’s Tobacco that recently took them through Los Angeles, to both Echo and Detroit Bar.

The rest of their tour takes them to the following cities before ending in at Empty Bottle their hometown of Chicago:

Saturday 3/27 – Bottom Of The Hill, San Francisco CA
Sunday 3/28 – WOW Hall, Eugene OR
Monday 3/29 – Holocene, Portland OR #
Tuesday 3/30 – Chop Suey, Seattle WA
Friday 4/2 – Triple Rock Social Club, Minneapolis MN ^
Saturday 4/3 – Empty Bottle, Chicago IL

My new favorite mash-up heroes just seem to get it right every time. From mixing Drake with Miike Snow to Dr. Dre with Class Actress, this duo knows how to take the good things from popular music and the good things from indie culture and bring it together to make something infectiously danceable, repeatable and awesome. I wish these guys would DJ every party I ever had.

You can check out a lot more about the group on their own site - – as well as get free downloads to their zipped mixtapes and other songs.
