the hood internet is pretty damn good

The last weekend of the school year did not let my inner party-goer down. Although I probably should have been writing the two papers due today, I think most of you would be hard pressed to say I made the wrong decision to see The Hood Internet this weekend at the local Mojo's.

If you aren't familiar, The Hood Internet is a duo of mash-up DJs by the names Aaron Brink and Steve Reidell. I had been to their blog once or twice in the past but didn't know too much and had only heard maybe a couple of their tracks. However, looking back I prefer it this way; being introduced to their mash-ups for the first time in person, with a whole bunch of drunk people dancing their body's capacity of sweat completely away, was favorable, to say the least.

Even though it was only the Steve Reidell (STV SLV) half of Hood, this show was insane. It was just one big dance party; and, I give major credit to Hood for being real eclectic in the different tracks used to mash-up. Justice vs. Genesis? Yes. Burial vs. Spank Rock? Yes. Eve vs. Radiohead? Yes. Their mixing transcended some musical boundaries that I never thought could really be crossed. It was a damn good time. Check out their blog, where they provide their mash-ups, for free. Oh, and they just happen to be playing at that deceptively awesome Monolith Festival.

This mash-up is especially amazing.
