The two dudes in the Hood Internet are multitasking experts. In addition to the occasional remix, the Chicago DJ crew pumps out frequent mash-ups, which layer beat-filled songs on top of each other to create new, booty-poppin’ super-songs. The Hood frequently meshes current phenoms with old-school jams (Tag Team vs. LCD Soundsystem, Mos Def vs. Battles, Prince vs. Kid Sister). Plus, unlikely combinations (like R. Kelly vs. Shellac) abound. Yes, R. Kelly and Shellac are played in tandem to produce bumpin’ results — all of which are downloadable (for free) at its Web site (www.thehoodinternet.com). Come out and kick it dance-party style, because Dan Deacon ain’t got shit on this.
