The Hood Internet has created innovative and intriguing mixtapes mashing up the best of Chicago, Swedish electro-pop star Lykke Li, and even put together a track overlapping pop diva Mariah Carey with Minneapolis-based soundscape collage wizard Dosh. In keeping with the Minneapolis theme, the Hood Internet just released yesterday a track mashing up hip-hop heroes Atmosphere and L.A-based indie-rockers Silversun Pickups. What inspired the pairings? Let's let The Hood Internet do the talking:
On September 13 & 14 we're gonna be at Red Rocks for the 2008 Monolith Festival, so we went and made a bunch of tracks comprised of artists that are playing. The plan as of right now is to post a track every day this week, so stay tuned.
Atmosphere plays the New Belgium stage on Saturday at 9:45pm; Silversun Pickups play the main stage on Saturday at 8:45pm; The Hood Internet plays the woxy.com stage on Saturday at 4:40pm.
