I still can't get enough of
their latest Mixtape and here comes another one. The Hood Internet has done a 54-minute mix for Frank & Oak. You can listen to it below, on Soundcloud, or download by liking Frank & Oak on Facebook.
I'm 27 minutes in and so far so good.
You know the drill: it's a new mixtape from The Hood Internet:
Downloads, tour details, and more info
on their site.
Update: I made a playlist on Rdio of the songs The Hood Internet used in Mixtape Volume Seven...sifting through their sources is a great way to discover new and previously overlooked music.
There are maybe 3-4 songs I couldn't find on Rdio...they are either unreleased or mixes from Soundcloud. Enjoy.
Update: And here's the same playlist for Spotify. (via @Afterschool)
Wooooo! The Hood Internet has
just released the sixth installment of their Mixtape series. You can listen to the whole thing here:
download it here. Their five previous Mixtapes are some of the most-played music in my collection...I'm listening to volume five right now actually.
a new compilation from The Hood Internet just "dropped". I am picking it up right now. (Am I doing this right? Yo?) Anyway, free music that's good! Clicky clicky.
This looks to be about a year old, but it's new to me:
57 minutes and 37 seconds of goodness from The Hood Internet.
It's a little more chill than their usual stuff -- "Trillwave is the soundtrack to the party after the afterparty or maybe to a sun-drenched backyard barbecue the next day" -- but I like it a lot so far. (via
Yes. Yes! YES! It's MIXMAS!
The Hood Internet has released their fifth mixtape. Download commencing now.
Just out. Haven't listened yet (downloading now) but if the last three are any indication, this is gonna be a great Monday for listenin'. Sample tracks:
5. Lil Wayne (feat. Babyface) vs Royksopp - Comfortable Up Here
15. Michael Jackson vs Ratatat - Billie "Wildcat" Jean
19. R. Kelly (feat. Keri Hilson) vs Sally Shapiro - Number One Christmas
31. Ghostface Killah vs Beirut - Save Me Concubine
I'm really enjoying
The Hood Internet's third mixtape. They take pop, indie rock, & rap songs and mash them up. For instance:
Jay-Z (feat. Lil Wayne) vs Xiu Xiu
Flo Rida (feat. T-Pain) vs Hot Chip
T-Pain (feat. Chris Brown) vs TV On The Radio
Lil Kim (feat. Missy Elliott) vs MGMT
Their version of R. Kelly's I'm a Flirt mashed with Broken Social Scene from their first mixtape was one of my favorite songs of 2007, far superior to the original IMO.
