One of the biggest contributors to the popularity of modern digital DJing may have been the mashup culture that emerged in the second half of the last decade, with artists like The Hood Internet creating finely crafted jams out of preexisting tracks. We asked STV SLV from THI to come through the office to talk about the group’s history, what lessons he’s learned, and what made mashup culture possible. Watch the full interview after the jump.
The Hood Internet have been making tracks for over six years now – but they’re still releasing new mashups and original tracks with extreme regularity. Interested in checking out their most recent work? Their album FEAT – released on Decon records last year – is available for purchase here on Beatport.
Want to engage more with these guys? Hit them up on Twitter at @thehoodinternet to bother them about making your own mashups, or maybe just to try and convince them why your mashup is better than theirs.
You can also check out more bootleg mashup tracks on their website!
