Hudson Mohawke – “Butter” Debut Album (Audio)


My main question is why isn’t there a ton of hype around Hudson Mohawke?!!! Listening to Benji B‘s Sunday evening radio show on BBC1Xtra about a week ago, I had to get myself a copy of his debut album Butter, which is an eclectic mix of gritty beats, hard basslines, futuristic instrumentals that are dark and airy, with a cerebral approach. If Mark Pritchard had a Prodigal Son, he would be Hudson Mohawke – the influences are clear. He uses the talents of West Coast Funkmaster, Dâm-Funk and DC native, OlivierDaySoul.

Hailing from Glasgow, Scotland where every music known to man except rap music, finds glory, Hudson Mohawke was the typical bedroom aspiring DJ/producer, DJing at university parties, pirate radio stations, and circulating his music organically online. His first official release was on the Ubiquity Records compilation Choices in 2007, and later led to signing with indi label Warp Records.

Check out the tunes below, then head over to iTunes and get yourself a copy of Butter.
