A mash-up staff who found fame because of their genre-jumping mixes, the Hood Internet were formed in Chicago after associates Aaron Brink (ABX) and Steve Reidell (STV SLV) both moved to the town with fresh university diplomas. They fulfilled in the indie music group May or MIGHT NOT, but after hearing mash-up DJs like Gal Chat and Them Skinny jeans, they headed right for the laptop computer and began merging Lil Wayne with Modest Mouse, Swizz Beatz with Deerhoof, and R. Kelly with Jens Lekman. Preliminary results were published towards the Hood Internet blog page in 2007 and it didn’t consider miss the music to explode. Right-click downloading quickly ticked in to the hundreds and by the finish of the entire year New York Journal had presented the music group. The Hood Internet Mixtape, Vol. 1 also got in 2007, while 2008’s mixtape The Hood Internet vs Chicago got on some press year-end TOP lists, including Current TV’s. For music not really released in virtually any traditional file format, it had been a milestone, since it was in ’09 2009 when the Ting Tings performed their music “Shut Up and I WANT TO Proceed” live with a little bit of Estelle’s “American Son” in the centre, a nod towards the Hood Internet’s mash-up mixture of the tunes. This year 2010 the group got some awesome corporate and business sponsorship when the brand new York Town streetwear brand Mishka sponsored their Trillwave mixtape. In 2012, the Hood Internet relocated beyond the mash-up using their debut studio room recording, Feat. Released from the Decon label, Feat presented an array of guests including Dark Moth Super Rainbow’s Cigarette, AC Newman, and Child Static.
