New Mahjongg MP3, “Free Grooverider”

YES.  I am so happy they finally released this track!  I kept hearing it whenever I saw Mahjongg live and it drove Sanita and I cray cray.  But, we finally got our hands on this Chicago, ILLinois outfit’s gem of a tune and so can you!

The dudes are getting ready for a pretty massive Fall tour through Europe, but I’d like to speculate that they might be back in St. Louis in the near-distant future…

The Hood Internet like Mariah Carey almost as much as our friend Liz does

I just found this Hood Internet mash-up. It kinda ruuuuuules. It’s called “Bring the Tabloid Scores” and includes Public Enemy‘s “Bring the Noise” on top of Nosaj Thing‘s remix of HEALTH‘s “Tabloid Scores”.

The Hood are busy putting together their third official mixtape, set for release at the end of August. They’ll be playing two sets at the Monolith Festival in Colorado on September 14. After a few scattered gigs around NYC and Chicago, the duo will be hitting up CMJ once again (last year’s show totally ruled!) and Mexico City after that.

As if they weren’t busy enough, the Hood entered Mariah Carey’s remix contest. The rules? Remix her latest track, “I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time” (ew) and if you win, you become her “top friend” on MySpace for a month. The Hood’s mix pins Carey against Dosh. Czech it:

Just when it seems it can’t get any weirder with the two, it does. Since The Hood are LOST fanatics, they created this viral video that mixes clips from the series with an MC Luscious track. The joint is deceivingly called “LOST Season 5 Sneak Preview”. I know virtually nothing about LOST but this song is buck.

Chicago Rocks!

Well, Pitchfork just had a post about how much Chicago rules.

So I had to goose that energy and tell you guys that The Hood Internet, also Chicagoans, have just dropped their most recent mix tape entitled The Hood Internet vs. Chicago which includes–as you might expect– Chicago artists. Highlights include R. Kelly, The Cool Kids, Kid Sister, Mahjongg, The Chicago Bears, Kanye West, Smashing Pumpkins, etc! I just have to say I’ve been waiting for a Mahjongg mashup for a long time as well as another Kellz jam. It’s been way too long since The Hood has made one of those. I mean currently it’s the town where you will both see Alison and I, so… basically Chicago Rocks! WOOOOO! Check you guys on the flip side.

Keeping The Internet Real is The Hood Internet

I don’t think its been clearly made known that TT&SC have an outstanding obsession with The Hood Internet. The duo are based out of Chicago and have been known for their amazing indie mashups, including the most famous R.Kelly’s “I’m a Flirt” vs. Broken Social Scene’s “Shoreline”. If The Hood Internet had a cult, we’d definitely be the first to join it and this makes them a top contender for The Billiken Club‘s fall lineup.

As well as making great music, they also are quite the connoisseurs of Photoshopping. I might as well mentioned that Alison recieved a lightning bolt saber from them when they performed at CMJ.

Get it, girl!

The Hood Internet is wayyyyy too legit to quit. But recently it just has to be known that there is a seed of love that’s been planted for the likes of R. Kelly. We have grown to believe that any mash up done with his name in it will be great and it has yet to be proven otherwise to us. You can d/l a track of R. Kelly’s “Hook It Up” vs. Rogue Wave’s “Endless Shovel” as well as Crystal Castles vs. Nice & Smooth. But definitely go to the website to d/l more endless, beauteous mash ups FOR FREE!

Totally Flossed Out

Yeaaaaah boyee. Chicago, Illionaires The Cool Kids have released a fresh new track entitled “Action Figures”, straight offa their MySpace. Compared to their other jams, this gem boasts a tight synthesizer-laden hook and it is quite apparent that Chuck and Mikey’s flows are improving.

What it lacks, however, is the “chopped and screwed” style vocals and bass-heavy beats on their previous songs like “Black Mags” and “Gold and a Pager”.

Either way, the duo dropped their The Bake Sale Totally Flossed Out  EP last month on Chocolate Industries and is generating mass amounts of buzz from B-Boys and Indie kids alike. The boys are currently spittin’ their rhymes in Australia and parts of Europe, but will be back state-side for SXSW and Coachella.

You can get the track off of MySpace but we here at TT&SC are feeling generous. So, go throw on your gold rope and get buck wild!
