For the past three years, the duo have been chewing up the indie, pop, rap and R&amp;B landscapes and spitting out pure fire. Like laptop-armed alchemists, they draw from their expansive interest in the many faces of modern music and re-imagine songs for mass public consumption through <a href="http://www.thehoodinternet.com/" target="_blank">thehoodinternet.com</a>.</p><p>Nearly 400 mixes and literally millions of free downloads later, The Hood Internet continue to ricochet across North America like an Arkanoid ball, bringing their arsenal of reassembled tracks to crowded dancefloors. And the dance parties have definitely been ignited in every city they roll through, not to mention holding it down at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Monolith Festival, SXSW, CMJ and Canadian Music Week.</p><p>Having connected with so many musicians over the past few years, ABX and STV SLV have embarked on recording an album of completely new material–but in the spirit of Hood Internet’s fantasy-sports-league stylistic collabos, the album is bringing together many different musicians from as many different walks of sound, to create a modern collaboration made possible by the speed of the Real Internet.</p></p> Fri, 18 Nov 2011 14:26:53 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/event/2011-12-30/hood-internet Anti Valentine’s Day Party: Twisted Tales of Dating in the Windy City http://www.wbez.org/event/2011-02-14/anti-valentine%E2%80%99s-day-party-twisted-tales-dating-windy-city <p><p>No date?
