Ready to Run Playlists
The Hood Internet creates killer beat-matched, hour long mashups that combine the best of contemporary hip-hop and pop with the latest from Pitchfork-certified indie rock darlings.
They’ve just released their latest mixtape, Volume Six (embedded above). Whitney Houston, Chromeo, Wiz Khalifa, M83, Beastie Boys and tUnE-yArDs are layered on top of each other into a 26-track, one hour playlist that screams to be taken out on a leisurely 10K.
Their last mixtape, the appropriately named Volume Five has been pumping in my ears for every one of my races. When Usher vs. Sleigh Bells hits, my pace jumps. I love that mix and recommend it to anyone that asks about running motivation. Only time will tell if Volume Six can earn that same kind of loyalty; but I’m ready to give it a shot on my next long run.
