Hudson Mohawke's 'Lantern' illuminates nicely

18 June 2015, 21:25

Glasgow - Hudson Mohawke, "Lantern" (Warp) Scottish electronic music producer Hudson Mohawke is out with his sophomore album, "Lantern," a lush blend of edgy vocals and smartly managed mixes that are ripe for hip lounge listening.

Ross Birchard, who goes by the stage name Hudson Mohawke, began his mix career on traditional turntables before migrating to more intricate remix environments. "Lantern" builds well on his discography, coming off experimental and unique in a genre often filled with sameness.

"Very First Breath," featuring Irfane, has a nice, crushing beat and tight vocals. It's a perfect blend of urban backbeat layered under a savvy singer to keep things fresh. "Scud Books" is another standout track. Just when you think it's all Lil Jon-styled bass, in comes the nifty keyboard stabs for the melody and it's quite unlike most other EDM you can imagine.

Hudson Mohawke's music is, thankfully, tough to pigeonhole. It isn't all fast enough to dance to, but it's so imaginative that slowing your body down for a good relaxing listen is just as pleasing.
