Matches for: “ TNGHT” …

TNGHT @ Oval Space, Thursday 15th November

CLUB MUSIC. That’s the only phrase we can think of to describe transatlantic trendsetters TNGHT’s recent output, and ne’er has this been exhibited better than last week’s gig at Oval Space in East London.
Hailing from Montreal and Glasgow respectively, Lunice and Hudson Mohawke have led from the front with horn-heavy, trap-influenced, maximalist dance music. As Time Out put it in a breathless tweet on the night, “Sounds like the future to us.” Highlights were their recent Waka Flocka Flame remix (available to download from the aptly chosen url, TNG.HT) and their instant classic, ‘Higher Ground’:
How do you think that last one went down?
Ross Birchard and L. Fermin Pierre II (see if you can guess who’s who…) both have solo output too illustrious to do justice to right now, but here’s a few recent tasters:
Sounds like the future to us too…

Hudson Mohawke – Pleasure

We apologise in advance for the intense feeling of missing out when you’ve read this post.

Following a limited run vinyl release back in 2011, ‘Pleasure’ is a Janet Jackson-flecked piece of joy from Numbers man Hudson Mohawke. Please, please listen to it before kicking off your Bank Holiday weekender:

The imprint that put out this goodtimes tune was the specially created label, Pleasure Principle. This has now morphed into the all-star surfing holiday festival in Newquay that kicks off next month, and ‘Pleasure’ is a teaser for that. The three days are jam-packed with essential listening, not least HD regulars from Joy Orbison, TNGHT and Rustie. To assuage the FOMOs, get a ticket here or try your luck with FACT’s ticket giveaway here.

In case it wasn’t clear, we wish we were going.

Hudson Mohawke – Slow Jams Chapter VI

Dim those lights, scatter those rose petals and fire up the laptop (for Human Drizzle, nothing else…), it’s Valentine’s Day and that means another Hudson Mohawke ‘Slow Jams’ mix.

‘Slow Jams Chapter VI’ (he started them all the way back in 2008) is the LuckyMe stalwart’s contribution to the romantic timbre of today and it’s essential. For those of you who haven’t heard one before, the mixes are genuinely comprised of old school slow jams and soppy soul, no surprise TNGHT bangers to ruin the mood…

Head over to the amazing dedicated mini-site to download it. In HudMo’s own words, “This mix goes into some extreme wavy red shoe diary heavy petting directions”. Which sounds good to us.

H∆SHTAG$

Hello lunchtime viewing…

Red Bull Music Academy are expanding their output yet again, this time with a web-documentary series, H∆SHTAG$. We’ll excuse the slightly (very) silly name as Episode 1, which deals with the burst of recent contemporary R&B, is actually pretty interesting. How To Dress Well, Miguel and The Weeknd producer Zodiac all offer their thoughts on this renaissance and its roots and implications. Zodiac has also donated a track to the cause, and it’s lovely listening. All stuttering beats and twisted vocals.

Future episodes are said to include interviews with TNGHT, Mount Kimbie, Flying Lotus and Main Attrakionz so we’ll certainly be watching this particular space.

What a multi-media post.

Lunice & Jacques Greene Mixes

A few mixes from a few of our faves.

First up is the opening instalment of the LuckyMe partial takeover of MistaJam’s 1Xtra show, 9pm-10pm for the next 12 weeks. Lunice does the honours and it’s a typically high energy mix, nicely blending TNGHT and some of Lunice’s straight up hip hop works. Bring on the next 11.

When you’re done with that, take things into the evening with this hour of Jacques Greene for The FADER:

There’s a reason why they’re our favourites…
