Remix Feature 1 – The Hood Internet

Tonight sees the start of this weeks remix feature from myself. I’ll be writing about some of my favourite remix/mash up artists around at the moment. Granted there are plenty more than the three I will be writing about but please feel free to suggest some more if you know of any that are worthy of mentioning.

The Hood Internet

The Chicago based DJ duo consist of Aaron Brink  (ABX) and Steve Reidell (STV SLV) and are renowned for their original takes on hip-hop and indie-rock tracks. For those who don’t know, these are the guys who first made the Estelle, Ting Tings mash up featured at the Brit Awards and the YouTube hit Usher Vs The Keyboard Cat.

Now these may not seem like the most ideal points of reference to “big up” an artist there are many more tricks up their sleeves. Ever wondered what it would be like if Cyndi Lauper teamed up Dizzee Rascal? Modest Mouse and Kanye? Montell Jordan and Arcade Fire? Well if you have then you are in luck and if you haven’t then almost certain you’ll be interested by the end of just one song.

In total they have gifted us with four official mixtapes since 2007 and each one has it’s definite highlights. Below are the track listings for each with links (YES, links) as they are free to download at no fear of being castrated as a result.

After the jump, those links and full tracklistings from each. PLUS a special treat
