The Hood Internet > Girltalk

Last summer it was Girltalk, this summer it’s all about The Hood Internet. I actually paid for the second Girltalk album (what was I smoking?) and nearly had a brain hemorrhage when he started cutting up Avril Lavigne. What happened to mixes that actually maintained a flow and actually let a track breathe for a bit? I guess everyone and their helper monkeys are mash-up djs now but The Hood Internet are legit – I mean they got a mixtape with all mashes of Lykke Li songs! I have linked a few of their mixtapes (Grab the Chicago one, thank me later.) And yes, they let the blends last for longer than 3.14 seconds.

    i downloaded the chicago mix a few months back and was pleasantly blown away. hood internet makes some really solid mixes.

  • jennilee

    yes. they are good good good.
    four tet vs. murs vs. slug – the perfect hip hop remix if i must say so. suprisingly i also appreciate the crystal castles vs. the pack track.

    NO BODY compares to GIRL TALK in mashups! no way!

      girl talk is great but ‘e-603′ and ‘easter egg’ are both close, and i’d say often times better.
