The Notorious XX: no link

A mash up album of xx and notorious tracks.

The notorious xx began as an idea in my sister’s apartment, where I was trying to figure out what it would sound like hearing juicy over vcr, and since then expanded to include all 11 tracks of the xx’s debut album chopped, sliced, and mashed up with biggie’s vocals. I made it over the span of a few weeks in boston, williamstown, albany, chicago, aspen, denver, and san francisco, and then mastered over 10 days in zurich, zermatt, london, san francisco, dallas, baton rouge and new orleans.

without the help, ideas, and support of a lot of people, it wouldn’t have been possible. thank you to everyone who helped out, gave me feedback, and otherwise influenced this project -- you were crucial in making this idea a reality, and I can’t thank you enough.

I had an awesome time making this album -- from the music to the art to the video -- and I hope you guys have as much fun listening to it as I did assembling it. feel free to connect via facebook, vote on hype machine, get in touch via email, or tweet about it, but most importantly, if you like it, the coolest thing you could do would be to share it with a friend -- music was meant to be enjoyed by groups of people, and sometimes we all get so accustomed to being siloed off by our iPod earbuds that we forget that.

thank you for listening to my project -- I hope you enjoy it,

p.s. if you run a blog and want to write about it, that’d be awesome! if you
have any questions/want to do an interview, feel free to get in touch: pr (at) waitwhatmusic (dot) com and check out this press release (PDF). enormous thanks to everyone who has already.
