Fans of the ever expanding array of remixed indie songs mashed up with hip hop will wanna check out Montreal producer Tor's latest project; 'Illinoize'. The title and art would suggest a pretty ambitious project, but in reality the mix tape only consists of seven songs with samples coming from four of Stevens albums. In practice not all of the samples really work that well, but at its worse the tape still comes off as interesting. At its best, there are some worthy moments here, particularly coming from "The Tallest Man" and "Night Zombies" which is linked below. Among the MC's participating are Aesop Rock, Outkast, and Brother Ali. Best of all the tape was offered for free download. Check out the website here, and the direct links below.

"Night Zombies/Talkin My Shit (f. Brother Ali)", 2009
