Hudson Mohawke are two producers who have managed to work with superstars (Kanye West for HudMo, Ariana Grande for Cashmere Cat) while still maintaining their own particular personal styles in their solo music. And now, as SPIN points out, Cashmere Cat has put together his own version of “Forever 1,” a newish HudMo track that didn’t appear on his recent album Lantern. Both versions are sweet, melodic instrumentals tracks more around melody than beat. HudMo’s version of the track is a sleek, sophisticated soul song, and Cashmere Cat has turned it into a candy-bright instrumental. Listen to his take on it below.
And here’s what Cashmere Cat writes about his version on his SoundCloud page:
