The Hood Internet

R. Kelly vs. Broken Social Scene

This half decade has seen the rise of the mash-up in indie music, peaking perhaps last year with Girl Talk’s Night Ripper. But, The Hood Internet wants their piece of the game and are snatching it up like nobody’s business. The blogosphere has been having a love affair with these guys and with good reason — the sheer mass of output from the Hood Internet has been impressive in itself, but there’s also just so many winners among it all. Most of my favorites come from the golden-eared ABX, who compiled the fantastic “I’m a Flirt (R. Kelly) vs 7/4 (Shoreline) (Broken Social Scene)mash-up, which I’d hold to be the shining achievement of the Hood Internet thus far.
