The Hood Internet
The Hood Internet
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 via NYC clothing label Mishka. And so much more music on the way! All eyes on the Hood.
Body Language
Body Language
Brooklyn’s Body Language has always embodied something of a sensual mythos. Since their inception in 2008, the band has been known for their restless pop experiments with a future-shocked blend of soul and R&B. The quartet’s debut 2010 LPSocial Studies earned the approval of everyone from NPR to The New York Times to The Guardian, who compared the breakout release to early Madonna, the indie disco of Prelude Records and “CSS doing an impression of Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band.” With their upcoming release Mythos, they continue to showcase their intimate music with lyrics of longing, desire and lost love. Love and the perils of love have guided their message through the years while the twists and turns of their instrumental pop experiments carve a labyrinth to be navigated carefully. Oftentimes dark and moody, Mythos pushes forth feelings of desire against ominous backdrops only to quickly veer back into the familiar and comforting.

Mythos is seven tracks which carve through remnants of future-shocked R&B, bass and house music. While continuing to push their pop sensibilities into each track, Body Language clearly spells out their keen ability to bend genres to their will and to make their own. With new singles 'Addicted' and 'Can't Hang On' coming this Fall featuring remixes by Memoryy, Click Click, Shiny Objects and more, Mythos pushes this quartet forward even further into uncharted waters.

Mythos will be released on OM Records on November 4th, 2016 as a digital release. Body Language will be touring in support of this release in November and December.
