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 don’t know why I never saw this when it came out! My sister sent me the link to this really great documentary called Good Copy Bad Copy. It is a film by Andreas Johnsen, Ralf Christensen, and Henrik Moltke about the good, the bad, and the ugly of copyrights. Girltalk and Dangermouse discuss their music and Tiamo from PirateBay talks about his battle to continue providing the world with pirated software.
