Here’s A Future x Future Islands Mashup

Well, this was probably inevitable. Last month, a handful of Stereogum staff went to SPIN’s big day party in Austin, which had both Future and Future Islands on the bill, and all of us made doofy jokes about how they should get onstage together. That didn’t happen, but Chicago masher-uppers the Hood Internet have now… More »

Hear Major Lazer & The Hood Internet’s Year-End Mixes

The Hype Machine has an interesting approach to this whole year-end list thing. Rather than putting together an actual list, they’ve recruited two well-regarded, omnivorous DJ entities to put together party mixes of some of the year’s biggest and best tracks.

The Hood Internet – “Grown Up Has No Trigger (Danny Brown Vs Dirty Projectors)”

Chicago masher-uppers the Hood Internet are uncommonly good at what they do, and they also deserve credit for finding possible connections between a couple of great and pretty-new tracks. In the case of “Grown Up Has No Trigger,” their latest effort, they’re pairing “Grown Up,” Danny Brown’s antic but heartfelt childhood memoir, with “Gun HasMore »

Inevitable Blondie/Arcade Fire Mashup Is Here

You probably noticed the strong new wave streak running through Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs, especially on the Régine Chassagne-fronted “Sprawl II.” The Hood Internet’s ABX also picked up on the song’s rhythmic similarities to Blondie’s “Heart Of Glass” when he created this mashup.
