Skybox, “In A Dream (@HoodInternet Remix)” (@skyboxmusic)

4 May

Skybox is a native Chicago band that garnered cult attention with their 2006 release, Arco Iris. Now, the band is back, working hard to promote their latest album, Morning After Cuts (January 2010).

Their current single, ‘In A Dream,’ gets a boost with a remix from¬†The Hood Internet. There are no drastic changes from the original track, which is free minus the cost of an email, but the remix plays up the dance vibe. It reminds me of the Cassettes Won’t Listen track, ‘Freeze and Explode (Maker Remix).’ But that is no insult. (Listen/Download below)

For JDP’s latest track, ‘Lights Out (Girls to the Floor),’ he teamed up with the Hood Internet for a crazy-awesome remix that mashes JDP with Los Amigos Invisibles. You can also check out and download the original track here.

Wait What “Juicy-r”

30 Mar

From Wait What comes a stellar mash-up of Notorious’ ‘Juicy’ and The xx’s track, ‘vcr.’ This is far superior to ‘The xx Gon’ Give It To Ya‘ by the HoodInternet. But to be fair, Biggie’s speak-easy style has always worked better for mash-ups and remixes. Though, I imagine that a Jay-Z remix is on the verge of dropping any day now -cementing The xx’s arrival and hip-hop cool.

Check out Wait What on soundcloud for more mixes of Biggie and The xx.
