Brooklyn based producer duo Brasstracks has been bringing their trumpeting skills to a multitude of covers and remixes including a collaboration with Lido. Now they've taken on supergroup TNGHT’s hit “Higher Ground” as a remix, which works perfectly as the original heavily used horns. They tweaked the beat, added some melodic keys, and was spot on replicating TNGHT’s wonky horns while changing it up to make the track their own. Enjoy!

The anticipation for Hudson Mowhawke’s sophomore album Lantern builds a little bit further with the release of his newest single "Scud Books" which is an instrumental track that is accompanied by a video. The music video is very unique like HudMo panning between slow motion explosions of Orchids blossoming and him turning up at live shows for an interesting combination to say the least. “Scud Books” feels like the first all out party starter of the album in the vein of his past supergroup TNGHT.

Well the powerhouse duo of TNGHT has taken a break for both Hudson Mohawke and Lunice to focus on their solo careers. Lunice, a Montreal native is back with his first original offering since the split. "Can't Wait To" is a chilled out atmospheric blend of rap and electronic elements coming together for a solid trap instrumental. The song is delivered with some intriguing visuals featuring Lunice dancing with beams of light I've found out are from N9 lights on Lexus cars. Hate to say it but shouts to Lexus for possibly the most tasteful ad placement I've ever seen. This new single from Lunice could mark the first from his upcoming solo album set to release on LuckyMe Records sometime this year. Listen below in full and we will keep you updated on the official release. 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 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!

Chicago rapper Rockie Fresh just got off a massive tour and brought out Lunice (half of TNGHT) for the After Parties sponsored by This Song Is Sick. The two artists obviously ended up linking up and working on some tracks and now we get “Superman OG” the next massive track from his upcoming Electric Highway mixtape. Lunice creates the perfect trap flavored track with Rockie Fresh delivering some solid lines. I hope this is a sign of the two working on more tracks in the future.
