EDITORS’ NOTES

Talk about a teaser. Rather than follow the all-too-brief speaker-clobbering beats of last summer’s Satin Panthers EP with a proper full-length, Hudson Mohawke has taken a detour with the equally promising EP transmissions of TNGHT, by his duo of the same name. A sample-flinging standoff between the groove-riding Glaswegian and Montreal’s own rising bass cadet Lunice, it’s off to the races as soon as the snake-charmer shudder and shake of “Top Floor” slips into a puddle of liquefied low-end lashings and manic melodies. From that point on, TNGHT is a hands-in-the-air moment waiting to happen, whether it’s triggered by bleach-stomping breaks and breathless cheers (“Goooo”), bubble gun blasts and baby-dropping Aaliyah allusions (“Bugg’n”), or apocalyptic calliopes made from compressed chorus lines (“Easy Easy”). It’s controlled chaos at its best, really, and quite the palette cleanser for whatever Mohawke has on deck next.

About TNGHT

Producers and LuckyMe affiliates Hudson Mohawke (Glasgow, Scotland) and Lunice (Quebec, Canada) teamed together in 2012 to form TNGHT. The duo made its live debut that March at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas; a London, England gig followed three months later. By the end of that July, the duo released a self-titled EP issued on the Warp label. Given the discographies of both producers, it wasn't surprising to hear left-field hip-hop full of hard-hitting beats and cartoonish sounds. ~ Andy Kellman
