THE HOOD INTERNET
TICKETS ON SALE NOW
ABX (pronounced like three consecutive letters) and STV SLV (pronounced “steve sleeve”) are collectively known as The Hood Internet. For the past five years, the duo have been chewing up the indie, pop, rap and R&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 thehoodinternet.com.
Nearly 500 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, SXSW, CMJ, Pitchfork’s #Offline, Mad Decent Block Party, and Camp Bisco.
Having connected with so many musicians over the past few years, ABX and STV SLV are putting the finishing touches on 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. In the meantime, there are always new mixes and mixtures on the way from The Hood, with original works and remixes filling the spaces in-between. A compilation of remixes and original production work dropped in December 2011 via NYC clothing label Mishka. And so much more music on the way! All eyes on the Hood.

Hardcore bands spring up like wildfires, so when innovators comes along, it's time to stand up and take notice. Lasers and Fast and Shit command attention. Blistering guitars, gritty bass tones, pounding and crashing drums, and brutally engaging vocals. On stage, Lasers is firestorm of noise, fog, and lights orchestrated by frontman Joe Carsello as he belts away from his custom mic stand/ control box. Absolute carnage. [Epitonic]
