Four Tet – Parallel Jalebi (Hudson Mohawke RMX)

As part of the ongoing appetite-whetting for his forthcoming album, Hudson Mohawke has been spraying a few new tunes around:

He dropped four new fellas on Benji B’s Radio 1 show (listen here), including the above remix of Four Tet’s juddering ‘Parallel Jalebi’. As a festive treat this is now available a gratis from LuckyMe’s excellent Advent Calendar. It’s better than the cheap chocolate you got out of yours this morning.

Hudson Mohawke – Brainwave

It’s ok guys, the weekend’s here.

Feeling a little sore-headed after thinking the weekend started today? This new one from Hudson Mohawke should help. ‘Brainwaves’ moves away from the glitchy abrasiveness of ‘Chimes’, our other taster from his upcoming Warp EP, and paints a picture for you. Soaring choral backing nicely compliments an ambient loop that never drops and is all the better for it.

If you like your HudMo a little longer and more dancefloor, enjoy this recent Boiler Room you animal:

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.

Human Drizzle: The Playlist, April 2013

Another month, another playlist. March contained little to shout about for those residing in the icy climes of the United Kingdom, but April is looking much more promising. For a start there’s tonight’s fun in Peckham, and it’s also spring, apparently. We shall see. As ever, we’re here to serve – so here are all the musical positives from March’s 31 days in one easy playlist:

[HINT: CLICK THE ARROW NEXT TO PLAY TO SKIP TRACKS IN THE PLAYLIST]

And here are our Top 5 tracks of the month (including the new one from Clancy: check him out at Human Drizzle Presents…. tonight):

1. Deptford Goth – Feel Real: Won over by the arresting power of Deptford Goth’s fragile pop, consider the hype for this band legit. Catch him play in London on April 24th.

2. HAIM – Falling (Duke Dumont Remix): Following his smash hit ‘Need U (100%)’, Duke Dumont’s superb remix of the sisters Haim could be enough to lead him to super stardom, he’s on a roll.

3. Clancy – All Just In My Mind: London based producer hits feel good heights again with another top tune. Come join the fun this Friday at Human Drizzle Presents and see him give this an airing.

4. Hudson Mohawke – Pleasure: In advance of the schooldays Cornwall holiday we all dreamed of, aka Pleasure Principle, Hudson Mohawke re-released this Janet Jackson-sampling stormer to whet the appetite. Consider it whetted.

5. Russ Chimes – Turn Me Out: Disco house goodness from London’s Russ Chimes, taking centre stage after a series of top remixes for the likes of Mark Ronson and Booka Shade. The Ejeca rework isn’t half bad either.

…and the reduced Spotify version of the playlist:

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…

Dominic Lord – Pierce

Meet Dominic Lord. He was an early member of the ASAP Mob (mostly as a designer – he created the ubiquitous VSVP stuff for upmarket hip hop fashion house Black Scale) but has recently forged out under his own steam. He’s astutely teamed up with Glaswegian beatster Hudson Mohawke to put out his first public release, ‘Pierce’.

Like peers from the ASAP Mob, Dominic’s making wall-of-sound, drawled hip-hop. Catchy but punchy rhymes bring to mind Kid Cudi but produced by Clams Casino. It’s no surprise that Geffen, Warner Bros and Def Jam, amongst others, are sniffing around to tie him down.

The video, directed by Aram Bedrossian, is also worth a watch, brings to mind those pictures that look like a vase, but also two people facing each other. Slightly less rock n roll than the last Dominic Lord vid to hit the web though.

Enjoy.

Rustie – Hover Traps

Glaswegian producer Russell Whyte, aka Rustie, released his début long-player this month on Warp Records. ‘Glass Swords’ is a record that would have sounded extremely alien only a couple of years ago.

In 2011 it is still an idiosyncratic collection of songs – drawing on everything from 90s trance to video game soundtracks. However, like Hudson Mohawke (who hails from the same corner of these Isles), Rustie is able to take this curious melting pot of influences and create his own brand of warped euphoria.

On the addictive ‘Hover Traps’, he takes the stabbed chords so favoured by every Swede with a residency in Ibiza and a questionable taste in V-neck t-shirts – and decides to furnish them with a slap bass, a dubstep beat and all manner of squeaks, squelches and samples.

It’s bonkers.

And what a line-up:

                • Voyeur

                • Medlar B2B Leon Vynehall
                • Happa

Tickets are sold out but keep your eyes peeled on Twitter for spares – and in the meantime, tuck into some Disclosure highlights, including HudMo‘s splendid remix of ‘White Noise’.
