‘TNGHT’ is a great example of what happens when you put two of the most talented hip hop producers in a room together and leave them to it. Shamelessly boombastic in the best possible way, the project sees Hudson Mohawke and Lunice cook up some of the biggest beats of their respective careers.
It’s released on the 23rd July. You can pre-order now over at Bleep.
It’s also worth checking out the FACT TV interview with them both that dropped earlier this week (I love the fact that Hud Mo looks like he’s playing street fighter on his iPhone throughout the interview). The duo share some interesting insights on collaborating in the studio and also their thoughts on the many imitators who’ve adopted their sound.
Those of you who saw his killer Boiler Room set earlier in the year will know that Lunice is off the fucking chain when it comes to DJ’ing and serious hot property as a producer. His second EP, ‘One Hunned’ sees the Canadian in fine form, featuring six hyperactive hip hop instrumentals all imbued with his idiosyncratic playfulness. Choosing a favourite is tough, but I’ve been obsessed with Guardian ever since hearing it at the aforementioned party.
Check this tight Lunice set from the Red Bull Music Academy takeover of the Boiler Room last week. Yup the one where Jackmaster outshone Diplo even though he only had one deck and Lunice killed it hands down with his nuts selection of good songs and solid cookery advice.

Released this week, this nine track free… yes free(!) EP from Local Action Records features a selection of reworkings/remixings/tributes to RnB legend Cassie. I mentioned earlier in the week that the Shackleton tune might be the best free download you’d find this week and I was wrong… This is.
With the likes of Brackles and Altered Natives contributing, the quality here is high. It’s worth downloading purely for the Jacques Greene Marriage Proposal mix of ‘Must Be Love’ alone. Skydiver is a really cool project and stands as a testament to the general quality of the Local Action Label (check out the previous 003 release by T.Williams if any further proof is needed!)
