Vinyl LP £9.49 WAP337LM
LP on Warp (Hudson Mohawke x Lunice).
Now here we have a pretty mad, bad and powerful record. I don’t know what it means but I’d say this is a progressive bass music/ghetto twelve and the men involved are our HudMo and his mate Lunice who I’m less familiar with. The ideas coming together and grinding against one another in a provocative style on this fat-booted space-age hip-hop-scented blinder are well worth noting, the production is deep, sharp and crisp with the emphasis being largely on slow, sexy and bass-heavy grooves, carefully splattered with wild digital age chatter, electronic gribbits and technicolour synth scree! There’s some really finely tuned micro-editing and countless tight addictive hooks to be snared by throughout.
‘TNGHT’ is by far a more consistent and addictive listen than HudMo’s own records for Warp where his itchy-footed eclecticism and excitable mash-up prowess started to grate on me. I’d go so far as to say I’ve heard nothing like this before - it certainly sounds like a weird and radical project - and it’s left me in awe of what technology can actually do these days. There’s no way this EP would have been able to sound so full-on and alarmingly fresh 10 years ago [Surely it would’ve sounded even fresher 10 years ago? - M].
Oh, I must also mention that there’s not a single tune here that wouldn’t slay a club and it’s like, totally super awesome fun with all its hyper-speed samples and superb sense of space - the dance music equivalent of a strongman trying to punch his way out of a huge rubber bag, this EP has the fuckin’ lot.
