The Twenty Best Hood Internet Tracks

While Austin’s Beauty Bar isn’t exactly my favorite place for a number of reasons, it is the weekend hotspot for high-profile after parties and A-list DJs.  So I find myself there from time to time.

This past Saturday, my favorite mashup duo rocked the house: The Hood Internet.  They’ve been around for three years, and you’ve probably heard their work if you’ve spent time cruising the web.  I would be safe in saying they’re probably the most popular mashup group out there, second only to Girl Talk.  Needless to say, they got the place bumping.  Afterwards, I browsed their site extensively, and I have compiled the finest of their work.  Browse the list and don’t be afraid to sing along and shake your money maker.

    Hard to quibble with this list. I’m a huge fan of “Lump Sum Of Paris” – Bon Iver/Friendly Fires/Aeroplane and the Rihanna/M83 piece. Great post, keep up the good work.
