Chicago DJ duo, The Hood Internet, featuring STV SLV and ABX, are releasing their debut album of original material, FEAT (pronounced F-E-A-T) with Decon on September 18, 2012.  We first told you about them in February, before they played the 35 Denton fest. The Hood Internet are infamous for their mixtapes featuring blends of a wide array of artists including the late Whitney Houston, Justice, Fleetwood Mac, Jay-Z and more. Their foray into production work has found them collaborating on new songs with hyped rappers and artists from across the nation that range from Chicago artist Show You Suck to Black Moth Super Rainbow’s Tobacco. This release marks The Hood Internet’s first completely original, sample-free album with vocal and instrumental collaborations highlighting different artists including erudite rapping by Psalm One on ‘More Fun’, synth-pop trio Class Actress alongside Canadian rapper Cadence Weapon on the chimerical ‘Critical Captions’ and the infectious track ‘Won’t Fuck Us Over’ featuring the raw energy of Chicago group BBU.  Tour dates are listed below.

Since the inaugural release of their first, critically acclaimed mixtape in 2007, their rise to glory has steadily landed them performances at festivals like LollapaloozaBonnarooSXSWCMJPitchfork’s #OfflineMad Decent Block Party, and The Roots Picnic.  When they aren’t busy playing huge festivals or touring the country,  they’re releasing upwards of 500 mixes on their website, leading to millions of free downloads since their start in 2007.  The Hood Internet will be going on a west coast run with Psalm One and Tanya Morgan in July and August.  A national tour will take place in September and October, coinciding with the album’s release.
