The Hood Internet Comes To The Troubadour 7/22

The Hood Internet is the mastermind production duo behind one of my favorite songs right now, “All Of The Lights,”  a mash-up of Ellie Goulding‘s “Lights” and the Portland Cello Project’s rendition of Kanye West‘s “All Of the Lights.”

Two outstanding songs on their own, The Hood Internet mash-up somehow brings out the veiled vulnerability of West’s message, while amping up the subtle angst in Goulding’s song. Goulding’s falsetto seems to effortlessly wrap around the treble of the strings, as if her melody and lyrics were actually written for the string arrangement. The mix of the acoustic strings with the feel of the hip-hop and electronic back beat brings the song to life. I loved it the first time I heard it and that feeling hasn’t failed me yet. It’s the kind of wide-eyed love that reminds me why I fell in love with music in the first place. It’s that good.

Based in Chicago, The Hood Internet will be rolling through LA with a show at the Troubadour July 22nd. Here are the details:
