Metal Lungies saw The Hood Internet this past year at SXSW. If you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing them, The Hood Internet is a Chicago-based production duo made up of ABX and STV SLV and they are best known for providing free downloads of their mash-ups on their site: thehoodinternet.com. So, how do you stand apart in an industry filled with remixes and mash-ups? The Hood Internet take a different approach than artists like Girl Talk and Pretty Lights by composing mash-ups that bridge the gap between indie, hip hop, rap, and r&b all the while staying fluid. Essentially they make music that serves to everyone, which is awesome, right? Not only are they great to listen to in your headphones but they also put on a great live show that gets everyone in the crowd dancing.
