About Hudson Mohawke
Scottish producer Ross Birchard, best known as Hudson Mohawke, played a significant role in shaping the sound of electronic music and hip-hop during the late 2000s and 2010s. A co-founder of the influential LuckyMe label and design studio, he was one of the leading names of the "wonky" scene, producing a fractured variation on instrumental hip-hop consisting of unstable beats and colorful synth tones, drawing from chiptune, funk, IDM, and other styles. Following the release of his kaleidoscopic, kitchen-sink 2009 debut album, Butter, he formed the duo TNGHT with Canadian producer Lunice. The pair's self-titled 2012 EP was unequivocally well-received, and helped usher in the EDM subgenre known as trap. Mohawke then became a highly in-demand producer, working with hip-hop heavyweights such as Kanye West, Drake, Lil Wayne, and many others, additionally venturing into video game soundtracks with 2016's Watch Dogs 2. His third album, Cry Sugar, arrived in 2022.
