Midnight In A Perfect World: Hudson Mohawke

Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

Glasgow-born electronic producer Hudson Mohawke is one of the most inventive, influential, and consistently thrilling producers of the 21st century. Emerging in the late 2000s as one of the co-founders of the LuckyMe collective, his game-changing 2009 debut album Butter put his futuristic vision on full display, a mesmerizing blend of American hip-hop and UK electronic styles with an exuberant pop streak that wasn't afraid of diving into mysterious, introspective, and unpredictable territory. His collaborative project TNGHT alongside Canadian electronic producer Lunice helped propel trap music into the mainstream in the early 2010s, and he's been a consistently in-demand producer, remixer, and collaborator, working with a wide-range of artists including Kanye West, ANOHNI, Björk, Jamie Lidell, Four Tet, and countless others. His highly-anticipated third full-length studio album Cry Sugar arrived August 12th on his longtime label Warp Records.

Hudson Mohawke's guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World reflects the same adventurous, colorful, and bold aesthetic of his own music, brilliantly jumping around genres with a joyful abandon and sneaking in a bunch of unreleased cuts from his friends and contemporaries along the way.
