TNGHT

On record, Lunice and Hudson Mohawke are hardly wallflowers. The former barged onto the scene with 2010’s Stacker Upper EP, a set of Commodore 64 crunk that boiled the Glawegian collective’s signature sound down to its raw ingrdients. Last year’s One Hunned mined similar territory, and the Montreal native has since found himself picked up by Mad Decent and going viral with Azealia Banks (not to forget turning out the absolutely incendiary ‘The Good Kids’).

On record, Lunice and Hudson Mohawke are hardly wallflowers. The former barged onto the scene with 2010’s Stacker Upper EP, a set of Commodore 64 crunk that boiled the Glawegian collective’s signature sound down to its raw ingrdients. Last year’s One Hunned mined similar territory, and the Montreal native has since found himself picked up by Mad Decent and going viral with Azealia Banks (not to forget turning out the absolutely incendiary ‘The Good Kids’).

Hudson Mohawke, meanwhile, has been LuckyMe’s principal poster boy since Hudson’s Heeters dropped back in 2006. The former DMC finalist makes gaudy capriccios that fuse hip-hop rhythms with a wild prog-rock sensibility. In the years since 2009’s excellent Butter on Warp, he’s stayed busy with the Satin Panthers EP, some canny jingle-writing and a little odd-job work for Kanye West.

Their self-titled debut EP as TNGHT is a rambunctious delight: upfront, tightly wound and, more often than not, charmingly daft. Atrophied voices, hand claps and Michael Bay FX are all hurled into the mix. Lead cut ‘Bugg’n’, meanwhile, yokes pots’n’pans clatter to a trap-rap undercarriage. It’s also a triumph of economy, trading in the madcap scrimmage of Butter, say, for a ruthlessly efficient approximation of Hot97 head-snap. Warp and LuckyMe clearly have high hopes for the record, and TNGHT pays back dividends. « hide
