Hudson Mohawke’s debut album ‘Butter’ is out today in the UK on Warp Records and the in-demand Glaswegian artist will be in Belgium next weekend ahead of more dates in the Netherlands, Italy, Japan and Australia next month. Full details on all the Scottish international gigs this week below.
Part of the Edinburgh and Glasgow based ‘Lucky Me Collective’ of producers, musicians, MC’s and beat-makers, Hudson Mohawke is probably the fore-runner and (he’ll hate me for saying this) star of Scotland’s new future-beats scene. He’s now highly in demand for his live sets and remixes, as well as being chased by US rappers for his production.
Imagine hip-hop, grime, crunk, electronica, trip-hop and booty-shaking funk all put into a mincer then spat out the other side! It’s wonky, disorientating, utterly compelling… and it also sounds like nothing else just now. Having signed to the ground-breaking Warp Records, in the world of electronic music Glasgow’s hippest son is already the name to drop!
Also on tour this week: Twin Atlantic, Travis, Fangs, Lloyd Cole, Paolo Nutini, Franz Ferdinand and Biffy Clyro. See all dates below.
