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 duo'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. ~ Paul Simpson
