The Hood Internet – “Sock It 2 Summer” (Missy Elliott x Blood Cultures)”

Music for… inspiring a playlist that SOCKS it 2 summer. The sassitude of classic Missy Elliott takes a daytrip to the beach and the mix makes you say “Ooh Ahh”.

Misun - Promise Me (The Hood Internet Remix)

[MP3] Misun – “Promise Me” (The Hood Internet Remix)

I’m sorry but sitting here in Mexico with a $2.50 margarita in hand, fish tacos on my breath, and a view of the pacific stretching out in front of me, I’m not inclined to write too much here. But if you close your eyes while listening to this jam then you may just be able to imagine you are right here with me. Go on, take a sip of this. Taste the fresh squeezed orange in it? Yeah… that’s good…

[PLAYLIST] The Best Party Songs of 2012

TheBurningEar's-Best-Party-Songs-2012

2012 was a fantastic year for party songs. It seems that music is having more fun than ever and I couldn’t be happier to share it with you all. We’ve all had some epic parties set to some epic party playlists and tonight is the night to top them all. (Or not, really. Nothing worse than NYE pressure.) So take a trip down the Read more

The Hood Internet - I'll Be Country (Big KRIT vs Passion Pit)

[MASHUP] The Hood Internet – “I’ll Be Country (Big KRIT vs Passion Pit)”

let me tell you bout this old school, pourin’ lean, candy yams and collard greens, pocket fulla stones ridin’ clean

♫ The Hood Internet – I’ll Be Country (Big KRIT vs Passion Pit)

In lieu of posting a whiny and dissapoined review of the new Passion Pit album I’m gonna go with this kicked up K.R.I.T. mashup courtesy of kings of the genre Hood Internet. One of my favorite songs of 2010 perfectly spices up one of the more disappointing ones of 2012. Time travel on the dance floor!

The Hood Internet - Five Seconds Don't Care (Waka Flocka Flame vs Twin Shadow)

[REMIX] The Hood Internet – Five Seconds Don’t Care (Waka Flocka Flame vs Twin Shadow)

sparkles on my champagne independence day i ain’t really want yo number yo friend look better anyway

♫ The Hood Internet – Five Seconds Don’t Care (Waka Flocka Flame vs Twin Shadow)

Could the music of Twin Shadow’s “Five Seconds” be so solid and genre-hopping that it could mashup with any upbeat song!? I don’t know!? And it really doesn’t matter. It works like a charm here. And now I feel like I know Waka better without actually having to listen to his music. Bonus!

thehoodinternet - Penguin x Biggie

[MASHUP] The Hood Internet – “Fuck With Mo’ Money” (Ma$e x Diddy x Biggie x Penguin Prison)

got the flow down phizat, platinum plus like thizat, dangerous
on trizack

♫ The Hood Internet – Fuck With Mo’ Money (Ma$e x Diddy x Biggie x Penguin Prison)

I don’t think I really need to explain this one.

[MASHUP] The Hood Internet – See Youth (Usher vs Santigold) & Singlekiss (R Kelly vs Lemonade)

don’t talk about it, be about it

♫ The Hood Internet – See Youth (Usher vs Santigold)

I already said it but apparently it bears repeating: The Hood Internet are baaaaack. Party on.

♫ The Hood Iternet – Singlekiss (R Kelly vs Lemonade)

[MIXTAPE] The Hood Internet – THE MIXTAPE VOLUME SIX

don’t play the game that i can’t win

  • Who: ABX and STV SLV
  • What: Indie/rap mashups, like Bearbot, Invisiboy, It’s Overture
  • Where: Chicago, IL + Facebook
  • When: Sweet mashups served weekly.
  • Why: The Hood Internet are the gold standard in indie/rap mashups but the Burning Ear hasn’t featured a new jam of theirs since Christmas 2010. I was beginning to think they done fell off.

♫ The Hood Internet – Beastie Boys x Santigold x Weird Tapes – Don’t Play No Trash

Then they dropped Volume Six of their mixtape series and all worry was washed away by the most seamless collection of genius mashup choices this year. Just scroll through the tracklist here to see what I mean. From the unexpected (Wiz + Phantogram, Mayer Hawthorne + M83, Tyga + Neon Indian) to the predictably balanced (Whitney + Chromeo, Ma$e + Notorious B.I.G. + Penguin Prison) The Hood Internet live up to that album art of deftly concocting dance party magic.

♫ The Hood Internet – Tyga x Neon Indian – Polish City

I highly recommend you do not start a party this year without this mix on hand. Stream the whole thing below and download it free here.

♫ The Hood Internet – Whitney Houston x Chromeo – When The Night Knows

TBE-1000-pic

[MILESTONE] The Burning Ear’s 1000th post! A Celebration Mix!

Wow. Another mind-bending milestone in the TBE saga. 1000 is a big number but in the grand scheme of things it will only be the tip of the iceberg. Running this site for the past 28 months has been an honor and privilege and we all look forward to dropping more sweet jams for a long time to come. For now lets celebrate with a little mixtape I put together below. There is a theme in there somewhere…

There are some potential changes to the site underway but until I get a breather from work I won’t be able to think about any of that. I can say that today I will be retiring my tradition of post titles. There were a thing I started waaay back when and although they are sometimes fun I feel like a more straightforward title may be smoother for everyone involved. The Internet is confusing enough without me trying to “clever” with my post titles. Try to hold back the tears, I know. Anyway, to the music! Read more

Remix Roundup Vol. 36 – 1.14.2011 [STAR SLINGER, ALI LOVE, GRUM, ARCADE FIRE, and more… ]

Welcome back to TBE our fellow Nurds’.

Its been two weeks, but like always, Joel & Scott are back to present Remix Roundup Vol. 36.

Listen party peeps, in 10 we were supposedly “ready for a good night“, but let us tell you something little bit different for 11.  In 11, we are going to create that good night.   Why? Cuz this one goes to 11 and its  time for some funky, dazzling, crunk, promiscuous, weird shite to go down.  And, if that aint enough to motivate you.  The apocalypse is approaching scary fast these days…

In 11, we forget the fly whips and go with fly chicks, and if your down… you might come to TBE to check out some wicked ass hits.

OHH YEAHZ.  ENJOY BITCHES!

♫ Star Slinger- Elizabeth Fraser (Cocteau Twins Rework) / Relax and take it easy like Sunday morning with this Cocteau Twins remix.  You know you feel it.

♫ Zero 7 – Medicine Man (Baby Monster Remix) / Here we have LA based Baby Monster giving Zero 7’s Medicine Man the treatment and hot damn we love this sweet sound.  We met the chaps in Baby Monster a few months back while they were out on tour with the Klaxons; excellent live set and excellent dudes.  We suggest you seek out their work, if you haven’t already!

The Best Songs of 2010 for Shaking Your Ass/Rump/Donk/Moneymaker/What Your Mama Gave You: A New Years Eve Collection

The year comes to a close tomorrow and it’s time to start compiling those “Best Of” lists we all love. What better way to kick things off than with a mega-mix of the year’s best ass-shaking jams. Those tracks that just take a hold and force you to dip that hip, and just in time for New Year’s Eve!

Some are originals, some are remixes, and some are mashups. It’s no means a definitive list nor are the tracks in any sort of ranking. These are the tracks that have gotten my blood pumping all year long and so what better way to celebrate them than letting them ring in the new year! More specific lists coming once the year actually ends!

I’ve broken them down into three parts for easier navigation. If these lists were hot sauces they would Read more

It’s Christmas time. I’m in a cabin in the woods. My stolen internet connection is worthless. My family is going through some stuff. I love you all but I’m just not able to give this post all the detailing that it deserves. I hope that you are too busy with your own holiday festivities to care and can just kick back and enjoy this collection of jams for the interesting mix that they are. Dive in and enjoy. I know I’ve been.
