We recently heard "Can't Wait To" from Lunice, the first offering from his solo record earlier this month and today we get the latest news on the other half of TNGHT, Hudson Mohawke. This song "Chimes" was first debuted back in 2012 during TNGHT live shows and a live video of them playing the song at Trans Musicales surfaced online, which was actually one of the first things to get me hooked on the duo. The song starts with an unforgettable eerie synth quickly escalating to some relentless 808 filled drops and some chopped up effects leaving the listener with an unreal amount of energy for such a short song. This is the first track to be released of Hud Mo's upcoming brand new Chimes EP, featuring 4 new songs set to release September 30th via Warp Records.
The song was also just used in the latest Apple ad for MacBook Pro centered around stickers. Watch ad below

The exceptional stylings of Scotland to Glasgow based beatmaker Hudson Mohawke has cast himself into a class of producer trendsetters for others to aspire to musically by absorbing, distorting and propelling various genres together. This knack is precisely why Hud Mo is a hot commodity who has earned a producer cred on Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music along with being on the books of Warp and Lucky Me Records. The producer is currently lighting up his SoundCloud account with unreleased official remixes, one being a summer time vibes soaked touch of Gucci Mane's "Party Animal" oozing in his signature bass infused methodology. We haven't been able to stop playing this and with a free download available, you will be able join in on the fun wherever you are. This was originally passed out on a UK Gucci mixtape. Enjoy

The G.O.O.D music family is at it again as Kanye West and Hudson Mohawke join forces for another powerful collaboration. This believed to be leftover release from Kanye's recent album Yeezus stems from the rapper penning a deal with ADIDAS who will produce his signature shoe after splitting ties with Nike. "God Level", which was premiered in the sports brands newest World Cup ad, features a fierce bass laden beat with trap drums providing the perfect foundation for Kanye to lay down a few NSFW lyrics while chanting the title throughout. No word of a release is available at this time, but we will bring you further details when they become available. Enjoy

Internationally connected beat-makers TNGHT comprised of Glasgow native Hudson Mohawke and Montreal based Lunice have let loose a video announcing the break up of the supergroup. This news comes very surprisingly considering their joint production was used for Kanye West’s recent single “Blood On The Leaves” along with a very successful original single “Acrylics” released this year. “Waning Moon” comes with a message from the Hudo and Lunice stating “Until Next We Meet”. We are also left with the social links for both Hud Mo and Lunice’s solo pages solidifying the current departure. With the duo’s track record of greatness, we can only assume this is a temporary move for both artists to fully focus on their solo careers.
We have included one of my favorite TNGHT tracks that is still unreleased, and will probably never see a release, so we have dug deep and included the best version of this amazing track. Stream below, let it mourn the loss, and most importantly enjoy!

The always impressive Hud Mo aka Hudson Mohawke just let loose a free track in spirit of playing as TNGHT at the Pleasure Principle Weekender in Cornwall, UK coming up April 26th-28th, which looks pretty incredible. It is a ‘Pleasure’ remix from 2011, which until now only featured on a rare vinyl only release. The remix has an incredible upbeat vibe and breathes new light to the Janet Jackson vocals. This is amazing, yet only gets me more antsy for some new. Thanks for the free track Hud Mo, we love you. Tickets and Line-up for the Pleasure Principle Weekender Here. Enjoy!

The combination of Montreal based Lunice and Glasgow based Hudson Mohawke is unreal. The first song the unstoppable duo ever made together was “R U Ready”, and was self released on their soundcloud. It was then taken down almost immediately at request of Kanye West, who in turn used it in his Fashion show, see the video here. Well after the long wait of horrible rips and previews, we finally a high quality version of this trap banger to bump. Those horns.. so massive. Turn this up, enjoy!

The duo TNGHT (Lunice + Hudson Mohawke) are really set out to make 2013 their year. There has been some word about the duo working with Kanye West. To further cement that idea Lunice just dropped through BBC, this simple yet powerful trap edit of the massive hit “Clique” by Kanye West featuring Jay-Z and Big Sean. This track has such a smooth, clean vibe to it, unlike a lot of the over the top agressive trap I have been hearing recently. Will keep you posted once we hear anything about an official releaes. For now you can abuse the replay button, enjoy!
