Hudson Mohawke & Lunice: TNGHT, self-titled

July 29, 2012

The TNGHT EP dropped three days ago produced by a collaboration between beatmakers Lunice and Hudson Mohawke. Been waiting on it a while; I love it as much as I thought I would.

The heavy, sparse beats hit where it counts. Call it deconstructionist house music. The songs are sly, cunning, somewhat evil, earnest. They command the ear’s attention in a way a lot of electronic music cannot. Oftentimes, I find it’s very easy for the half-uttered melodic lines and piecemeal beats of electronic music to slide by the ear without leaving any impression. TNGHT is insistent; it is dirty, unrelenting.

I would love to experience it live. It’d drive a crowd insane. It would hardly be dancing—just frenzy and awesome.

I’m fascinated.
