Concert preview: Against the odds, The Hood Internet keeps wringing magic out of mashups

By Columbus Alive
From the June 20, 2013 edition

Mashups already seemed passé when The Hood Internet emerged in 2007, six years after the Strokes/Xtina big bang. But the Chicago production duo continues to blend songs together, and the results continue to compel for the most part.

To behold their timely Kanye/Daft Punk throwback mashup “Doing It Good” is to be delighted, and their deployment of Chiraq drill sergeant King Louie at the outset of The Mixtape Volume Seven is a heavenly burst of hometown pride, though their Miguel/Bon Iver mashup is to be avoided at all costs.

They’ll have The Bluestone blissed out when they take the decks Thursday after Attak & Carma, Heady Ruxpin, Entel and Fallsteeze.
