A friend of ours recently turned us on to the aqua-crunk sounds of Hudson Mohawke, a young Scottish-born DJ making some really dope beats. He also apparently hates the label “aqua-crunk,” but then again, who wouldn’t? Imagine if Ratatat and Timbaland got crazy in the studio and then made a little DJ baby that liked the drums. Hudson Mo (as he is also sometimes called) is a member of the LuckyMe collective based out of Glasgow, who dub themselves “a label born out of the love of primary influence. We are here to fuck with genre and sensibility.” Whatever that means. Go HudMo.
Here’s a track from his first record, Butter, released by Warp Records last October. Now who’s going to jump in on these instrumental beats?
