A DJ mix can do many things – like make an instant playlist for you, expose you to some artists you might not know, make you want to drink more than normal, or maybe just keep you up-to-date on what’s hot in the Pitchfork meets hipster hip-hop world. Local DJs, the Hood Internet were one of the first credible sites to give MiS any props – by simply linking us on their mash-up induced website. For those not in the know, the Hood takes a relatively well-known MC’s spit and layers it over a song from a group you’d find on the PFork or your local hipster, meets indie rock blog. For the most part, the background music usually stems from an artist I dig and a lot of times, the track they decide upon would fall into a top 50 single chart, if I was so ambitious.
This time around, their mix consists of 34 tracks. As always, the Hood is upping them for free. Give a listen to two below and decide if you need this. Personally, I’m feelin’ it and do recommend a dip over to the Hood.
Just a heads up, guys: “Bump” by Spank Rock should never be touched. Never. 0.0 there.
