The Hood Internet

In an age of immediacy, The Hood Internet gives the people what they want on a daily basis â even if they donât know they want it yet. Marauding the pop, rap and R&B landscapes like laptop-armed alchemists, DJs STV SLV and ABX (Steve Reidell and Aaron Brink) drop the unlikeliest elements into their pot and make goldââ from Dirty South rap to Canadian indie rock to âFrench Touchâ electro to pretty much whatever else you got.
Longtime collaborators and occasional rivals STV SLV and ABX first âmetâ on the internet, downloading each otherâs songs and taking occasional shots at each other on wax before joining friends to start Chicago art-pop band May or May Not. The pair staked out www.thehoodinternet.com in spring 2007 and started cooking up full song mash-ups complete with Photoshopped glossies for each title. Witness Miami coke-rap kingpin Rick Ross posted up amongst Brazilian electro-rockers CSS, Flo Rida kicking it with the Hot Chip squad, or Ghostface Killah sneering between the guys from Spoon.
When the rest of the internet heard what was going on in the hood, the phone got to ringing, and in the past two years The Hood Internet has tore the roof off all over North America, sharing bills with Diplo, the Hold Steady, the Cool Kids, Wu Tangâs GZA, Matt & Kim, Flosstradamus, Blackalicious, RJD2, Kid Sister, and so many moreâwhen not holding it down at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Monolith Festival, SXSW, CMJ and Canadian Music Week.
With the world wide web on lock (at a million-plus downloads theyâre âinternet platinumâ) The Hood Internet has racked up (as of press time) 300 original mash-up tracks, four full-length mixtapes including one devoted entirely to bands and rappers from the Hoodâs home base of Chicago, some straight-up remixes for bands like Blitzen Trapper, The Rosebuds and El Perro Del Mar, a 10-track collaboration with Bay Area rappers/Vans aficionados The Pack, and a 7-song EP melding raps from Aesop Rock and cohorts with the aural wizardry of Black Moth Super Rainbowâs Tobacco.
And so much more in the works! --Bio from The Hood Internetâs Facebook fan page
