MP3 of the Day: Hudson Mohawke's Bootleg Jodeci Remix

Scotland's young and talented beatsmith, Hudson Mohawke, has been on a serious roll. His soulful wonky-bass productions graduated from the homegrown LuckyMe label to the indie-giant Warp for the release of his 2009 debut album, the smooth and playful Butter. A video for album cut "Joy Fantastic" was recently premiered at a live event in Glasgow. He offered his third collection of Valentines Slowjams for free download--and he just shared a new bootleg remix of the classic Jodeci tune "Freek'N You."

HudMo (a.k.a. Ross Birchard) is no stranger to the bootleg remix. His break-out tune "Ooops" ripped the vocal track from one-hit wonder Tweet's "Oops (Oh My)," and turned the jam into a massive, banging club hit. This brand new track, properly titled "Freek," falls more in line with the sounds heard throughout Hudson Mohawke's debut. It features squelching horns, huge drum sounds matched with skittering snare rhythms, sparkling soundscapes lilting about in the background, and plenty of vibrating low-end. The remix properly matches the unbridled passion of Jodeci's classic vocal performance.

Hudson may not need another hit track to help generate buzz about his stellar production work, but "Freek" sure won't hurt.

  • 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.'"
