The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, but for the most part this week’s best singles aren’t the ideal soundtrack for your cookout. (Speaking of which: We’re still waiting for those BBQ bangers you promised, Kanye.) The songs that struck us this week are mostly serious and/or introspective, and even the loud ones are a better… More »

Hudson Mohawke – “Indian Steps” (Feat. Antony) & “Scud Books” Video

The UK producer Hudson Mohawke is a few weeks away from releasing Lantern, his first new solo album in what feels like forever. We’ve already heard the early tracks “Ryderz” and “Very First Step,” with Irfane. And given that HudMo has lately put in work with people like Kanye West and Pusha T, it’s not… More »

Next month, the futurist producer and Kanye West collaborator Hudson Mohawke will drop his new album Lantern upon an unsuspecting world. And this morning, he’s unveiled his video for the single “Very First Breath,” a collaboration with singer Irfane.

Hudson Mohawke: “The TNGHT Record Spawned Kind Of A Parody Genre”

In a recent interview with Pitchfork, Hudson Mohawke was fairly candid about his feelings regarding TNGHT, the production duo he formed with Lunice and then later disbanded. Their duo was widely regarded as almost revolutionary in its approach to beat-making and electronic production, but from Mohawke’s perspective, staying “cutting edge” wasn’t on his mind:… More »

Hudson Mohawke – “Ryderz”

Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke has already made an indelible impact as a producer by working with Kanye West on both Cruel Summer and Yeezus, but on his second solo album, Lantern, Mohawke seems determined to keep pushing his sound forward. We previously heard the album’s debut single, “Very First Breath,” featuring French vocalist Irfane, and… More »

Hudson Mohawke – “Very First Breath” (Feat. Irfane)

Last weekend I watched Scottish DJ/producer Hudson Mohawke close out the Fader Fort — the hottest ticket at SXSW thanks to free drinks and rampant surprise guests in addition to the generally high quality of the lineup — and he blew me away even though his buddy Kanye West never showed up like the whole… More »

Hudson Mohawke Announces New Album Lantern Feat. Miguel, Antony, & Jhené Aiko

The British producer released his last proper album, his debut Butter, in 2009. In the years since, he’s formed TNGHT with Lunice, helped invent the trap-rave micro-genre, signed on with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music production stable, and broken up TNGHT with Lunice. And now he’s finally announced plans for another album. The new LP i… More »

Antony Announces New Album Hopelessness, Co-Produced With Oneohtrix Point Never & Hudson Mohawke

Recording under the Antony & The Johnsons name, Antony Hegarty has always come off as a magnificent torch-song balladeer type. But Hegarty has also done some amazing work singing over electronic tracks, as on Hercules & Love Affair’s “Blind” or her duets with Björk. And on the forthcoming album Hopelessness, we’ll hear what happens whe… More »

Watch Young Thug, Killer Mike, Danny Brown, Pusha T, & Dozens More On 42-Minute Posse Cut “The Rap Monument”

Up until today, the Game’s 13-minute, 25-rapper “One Blood” remix has been the final word in absurd, overlong rap posse cuts. But now Noisey & Hennessy have outdone it by putting together the 42-minute, 36-rapper “The Rap Monument.” The new track has verses from a deeply ridiculous number of rappers. Plenty of them are relative… More »

Hudson Mohawke – “Chimes (Remix)” (Feat. Future, Pusha T, French Montana, & Travi$ Scott)

Hudson Mohawke came up as a bass music producer and as half of the great duo TNGHT, but he’s now firmly in the rap universe after having joined Kanye West’s production stable in time for Yeezus. Now, a whole host of rap monsters has jumped on his dark, pounding solo track “Chimes,” turning it into… More »

Hudson Mohawke – “Brainwave”

Next week, Hudson Mohawke will release the Chimes EP, his first collection of solo material since 2011’s Satin Panthers EP. We’ve already heard the title track, and here’s a new one called “Brainwave.” It’s a short, slippery production that’s built around some echoey vocals that wouldn’t sound out of place in a big-budget movie trailer.

Hear An Untitled New Song By Action Bronson And Hudson Mohawke

Action Bronson typically sounds most at home rapping over bright, funky samples culled from YouTube clips by frequent collaborator Party Supplies, beats as colorful and free-associative as the Queens rapper’s flow. But he sure sounds good over Hudson Mohawke’s latest dystopian discharge. Mohawke (pictured) debuted the short, as-yet-untitled collaboration during his Boiler Room set last… More »

Hudson Mohawke – “Chimes”

At the very end of 2013, TNGHT announced they were finished after dominating the trap-house trend and earning the rare honor of being sampled as a Kanye hook. But it’s hard to feel bad about Hudson Mohawke and Lunice splitting up when they were already such promising artists before joining forces. Now that they’re solo… More »

Duck Sauce – “NRG (Hudson Mohawke Remix)”

On St. Patrick’s Day, superstar DJ duo Duck Sauce presented an all-star remix of Quack track “NRG,” a frantic, four-on-the-floor bomb-dropper featuring input from Skrillex, Kill The Noise, and Milo & Otis. Here’s another take on the song by Hudson Mohawke, who’s molded “NRG” into his favored trap-rave form, so that the cartoonishly colorful neo… More »

Producer Hudson Mohawke played what is believed to be the original version of Kanye West’s “Bound 2″ during his DJ set in Leeds on Saturday. Different from the released anthem that listeners will always remember for its Kim-on-a-motorcycle video, this version — circulating under the name “Bound 1″ — is more piano-driven and features a… More »
