Hudson Mohawke – Thunder Bay (2011)

Scroll down to content

For his 2009 full-length debut Butter, Glasgow’s Ross Birchard, aka Hudson Mohawke, created a weirdly pitched take on American R&B. It was a thrilling, often head-spinning collection of future-pop that caught the attention of Flying Lotus, Battles and Tinie Tempah. On 1 August Warp will release his new five-track EP entitled Satin Panthers, lead by the track Thunder Bay. Opening with a siren call, Thunder Bay builds ominously to unleash thundering bass and double quick beats. After two minutes the bass drops away, with thick synths expanding over a gloopier beat before the whole thing explodes again. It’s the kind of experimental hip-hop production everyone assumed Timbaland would be making by now. [Source]
