Hudson Mohawke - Polyfolk Dance
I was very excited to lay my hands on one of Warp Records latest endeavors and I was right to be so. Hudson Mohawke's debut ep combines some frantic cut up samples, soul melodies mixed in some of the heaviest beats I have heard this year. The 22 year old Glaswegian's music contains the technicalities of any of the finest people I would care to namecheck, Mr Aphex Twin, Clark, etc but every track is happy and amazingly danceable and played loud it is incredible. Each track has a certain charm about it that you really don't find with a lot of artists in his genre (If he has one.)
Hudson Mohawke is playing Bloc festival next week and I will certainly be watching in awe.
