The producer was making an appearance at the Free Form festival in Poland when he played the songs, which were captured by fans on their mobile phones. Neither of the tracks have titles as yet but the recordings are clear with one song featuring Kanye rapping: “There’s leaders and there’s followers but I’d rather be a dick than a swallower.” Scroll down to see footage of Hudson Mohawke playing a second track now.

Kanye West recently posted a mysterious tweet which read: “June Eighteen.” The rapper updated his Twitter account with the message, leading fans to speculate that June 18 could see the rapper release new material. Just before the tweet it was reported that Kanye has finished recording his new album, the follow-up to 2010’s ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’. The rapper also played a brand new song called ‘I Am A God’ at the Met Gala in New York on May 6.
