Spoon’s shimmering groove “Inside Out” and Dej Loaf’s twinkling Detroit rap hit “Try Me” are two of the songs that snuck up on us the hardest as this past summer drew to a close. And now, in the grand tradition of their Taylor Swift/Kendrick Lamar and Future/Future Islands mash-ups, Chicago DJ team the Hood Internet have combined “Try Me” and “Inside Out” into one song, throwing Dej Loaf’s vocals over Spoon’s instrumentals. As with so many of these things, the component parts gel way, way better than you might expect. Listen below.
