The Hood Internet are best known for their mashup mixtapes and their quest to deliver dancefloor-friendly tracks to different cities across the world.
Their set-up revolves around two MacBooks, each running Ableton Live software, with each connected to a separate Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 interface. The Scarlett 2i4s are then hooked up to separate channels of a DJ mixer, allowing them to control each signal in the same way you would if you had two turntables fed into a mixer.
In addition to this, the Scarlett 2i4's preamps make it an ideal interface for use in a home or mobile recording set-up, and that's exactly what The Hood Internet do, running one alongside Ableton again.
