Hudson Mohawke Drops Free Release ‘HudMo 100’
Having now hit the big 100,000 (likes on Facebook), HUDSON MOHAWKE has put up an edit of some of his most popular tracks as a quick “thank you” to his fans.
‘HudMo 100’ is a slight step back in time to the R&B/pop classics we heard on repeat a few years ago – including Chris Brown and Ciara – but with calm mood among the complexity. You might liken it to sporadic releases and re-works from Australia’s Ta-ku, and this collection flows real well.
Hudson Mohawke is already good at the big-room beats. But this release features his intricate reworking with fractured synths and spaced out sounds in the back lifting the originals away from their rooted hip-hop grounding.
In ‘Kiss Kiss’, the tempo drops and Hudson adds in his own backstory with melodic swirling synths and rolling snare. Then it’s upbeat and expressive for ‘Midas Girl’, with slick underlying percussion almost pushing vocals from the fore of the jivey original.
Best part is, it’s up for FREE DOWNLOAD.
