It’s all go for Hudson Mohawke. The Glaswegian has announced he will follow a string of festival dates with a UK tour – including his first London Headline Slot, at XOYO on October 19th.
HudMo - aka Ross Birchard - is creating quite a stir at the moment. The Bright Young Thing was a DMC UK Champion at 14 and has been accruing an enviable crew of collaborators ever since, including Tinie Tempah, Kane Beatz and Chris Brown. Furthermore Just Blaze and Diplo have named HudMo their current favourite producer, whilst renowned UK producer Paul Epworth is a big fan.
As we recently shared here, Hudson Mohawke’s new EP, Satin Panthers, is released on Aug 1st via Warp. An explosion of technicolour post R'n'B, we’re sure it’ll soundtrack many a woozy summer night. He’s also been getting a wealth of deserved attention for his bootlegs, including an impressive reworking of Keri Hilson/Weezy’s ‘Turn Me Off’ (which we previewed here) alongside Freek and Party Animal. Have a listen to the unofficial remix that Gucci Mane has made of ‘Party Animal’.
