CURRENT: Hudson Mohawke – “Scud Books”

Hudson Mohawke made a name for himself with his collaborative EP as TNGHT alongside Lunice, and since then, his pummeling, sledgehammer electronica has left stars such as Kanye West and Pusha T to insist on spending some studio time with the budding electronica artist. Thus far, the tracks from Hud Mo’s forthcoming Lantern has shown the producer deviating from what turned him into a commodity – from “Very First Breath,” “Ryderz,” and the Antony Hegarty-assisted “Indian Steps.” But on “Scud Books,” Hud Mo synthesizes his many inspirations into a purifying, eye-opening instrumental that reasserts his place in electronica’s hierarchy.

Lantern is out June 16 via Warp.
