The homie Dorsh blended a couple of classic house tunes into a tasty mashup. Nice work!
Shiftee’s mix for CLuster Mag finds the deejay combining hip-hop anthems with quirky underground beats.
A few months back, The Hood Internet dropped the BBU and Das Racist assisted single “Please No Pictures”. This week THI dropped their self-titled debut album w/ the help of Mishka. With contributions from artists like Freddie Gibbs, Ninjasonik, and Foster The People, The Hood Internet has crafted a fairly impressive project.
I’m finally starting to clear out all of the stuff I’ve been meaning to post for the past … month. A few days ago, Kid Delicious aka Slater Hogan shot me his most recent track, a mashup of Too Short and Passion Pit. I like the direction he went with the tune. The blend of indie dance music and West Coast gangsta rap makes for a catchy and extremely DJ friendly piece.

Cookin’ Soul always comes correct with their mixtape projects, and the RED Album follows in step with the rest. CS’s ability to re-create tracks using the original samples for the tune and other pieces of inspiration is astounding. The quality and thought behind each remix makes me dream of them actually producing a full length album. These guys crate dig like NO ONE ELSE!
About a week ago or so, Squincy Jones hit me up with his latest blend. I must say that I prefer this version of the recent Charlie Boy hit over the crap that’s on the radio. But that’s because I always wanna meet someone in the trap when it’s going down.
So a day after I post their most recent work just to promote the upcoming show, The Hood Internet drops The Mixtape Volume 4 featuring some of their most recent work. If you are into hearing classic jams chopped up and rammed together w/ new joints, then you almost have to love The Hood Internet. I can’t wait for this show at Blu on December 3rd. Shit, I can’t wait for all 3 Muzique Boutique shows: 12/3 – The Hood Internet, 12/10 – Mark Farina, and 12/17 – DJ Dan!

This is an amazing little mashup of some serious classic soul and a dubby reggae beat. Masterpiece!
Kid Delicious mashed up Grey Granite’s tune “Got Soul” with a few French disco house tunes and came up with a hot joint that will be appearing on the remix album to Grey’s next disc. Of all the Grey remixes that have been floating into my inbox lately, this is quite easily my favorite. Keep your eyes peeled for more exclusive Grey Granite leaks in the future.
WARNING: I have not listened to this mixtape yet, but I am going to post it as quickly as possible because I am already annoyed with the number of emails I have gotten about it. The track selection looks a little decent, but I’m warry of any DJ that did a Lil Boosie mixtape series with any sort of pride. Some of you cats might like this ish. I have a feeling it’s going to leave me wanting to listen to Squincy Jones again.
Instead of putting out some half assed shit like this, Dope Couture needs to be fucking with my boys Grey Granite and J.Brookinz.
UPDATE: After listening to it, I was right. I just want to hear something dope like Squincy Jones.

When I saw this over at 2dopeboyz and DogsonAcid, I about freaked out. Beyond Timbaland jacking dubstep for his last album, it seems like very few mainstream hip-hop artists have taken notice of the UK heavy bass movement. I am not saying that I am a huge fan of the execution on this track. Actually, I think the hook is rather obnoxious and would have rather had Snoop do it himself versus some lackies, but all in all, I am glad to see that he at least did something in the dubstep realm.
The other night was a ton of fun. The Skinners opened w/ a lot of fun electro house…fairly different from what I was actually expecting, but dope none the less. Steady B picked up where they left off and moved towards some booty and got a few ass shaking. Sea Monkey closed out the night w/ some a little deep dubstep. The real hero of the night was Squincy Jones who rocked the house w/ a perfect blend of dubstep/heavy bass, hip-hop remixes, and other fun stuff. If you missed the other night, I hope you cop these and realize that an MHC party is never to be missed.
Saturday is about to become new music day. Last night my friend the Bek sent me LMFAO, and this morning Motif schooled me on Megasoid. After listening to the tunes on their Myspace, I decided to download their 2 mixtapes and was fairly impressed. This Canadian crew blends glitch hop and heavy bass in a way that is fun beyond all belief. I’m including a previous mix they did as a bonus.
I feel like Jay-Z is the most popular target for mashup mixtapes because he tends to release acapella albums, but this piece of copy and paste is really fun. Minty Fresh Beats artfully blend Radiohead instrumentals with Hova verses to create what might be the best Hovito mashup mixtape since the Grey Album. Check it out and let me know wha you think.
