A mash-up crew who came to fame thanks to their genre-jumping mixes, the Hood Internet were formed in Chicago after members Aaron Brink (ABX) and Steve Reidell (STV SLV) both moved to the city with fresh college diplomas. They met in the indie band May or May Not, but after hearing mash-up DJs like Girl Talk and Them Jeans, they headed straight for the laptop and began combining Lil Wayne with Modest Mouse, Swizz Beatz with Deerhoof, and R. Kelly with Jens Lekman.
Initial results were uploaded to the Hood Internet blog in 2007 and it didnt take long for the music to explode. Right-click downloads quickly ticked into the thousands and by the end of the year New York Magazine had featured the band. The Hood Internet Mixtape, Vol. 1 also landed in 2007, while 2008s mixtape The Hood Internet vs Chicago landed on some media year-end Top Ten lists, including Current TVs. For music not released in any traditional format, it was a milestone, as it was in 2009 when the Ting Tings performed their song Shut Up and Let Me Go live with a bit of Estelles American Boy in the middle, a nod to the Hood Internets mash-up mix of the songs. In 2010 the group got some cool corporate sponsorship when the New York City streetwear brand Mishka sponsored their Trillwave mixtape. In 2012, the Hood Internet moved beyond the mash-up with their debut studio album, Feat. Released by the Decon label, Feat featured a wide range of guests including Black Moth Super Rainbows Tobacco, AC Newman, and Kid Static.
