Mash-ups are the most polarised form of hip hop – or even of music in general. It’s poorly done, or amazingly well. There’s not much in between. Personally I am not a fan of mash-ups at all, but this release is another exception. DJ producer/dj Psycosis playfully mashed Neutral Milk Hotel’s indie rock cult classic album “In The Aeroplane Over The Sea” with hip hop.
Don’t judge this mash-up album by the gimmick-y title, because these combinations are actually pretty nice. Neutral Milk Hotel mixed with the likes of Kanye West, Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, Nas, Dr. Dre, M.O.P, and, ergh… Pitbull. So do yourself a favour and skip the track Miami 1981, but all other tracks are surprisingly enjoyable.
