Hudson Mohawke: Show Preview 

Wednesday, May 28 2014

Hudson Hawk, a cartoonish 1991 Bruce Willis comedy and box office bomb, is about as profoundly uncool as a movie can get. Remarkably, its memory partially lives on in the 2010s all thanks to Hudson Mohawke, the nom-de-electronica of highly in-demand producer and DJ Ross Birchard. (Birchard says he picked the name after seeing it carved into a statue somewhere, but the association still stands.) The London-based Scotsman is responsible for one record (2009's Butter) and a heap of EPs that emphasize snappy drumbeats, club-friendly verve, and a hyperactive, psychedelic sparkle. Solo work aside, HudMo has made waves by teaming with Canadian producer Lunice as TNGHT, and producing tracks for the likes of Drake, Pusha T, John Legend, and Kanye West; he assisted on Yeezus' "I am a God" and "Blood on the Leaves" for the latter.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
