TNGHT – ‘TNGHT’ EP

UK's underground darlings don't fail to disappoint

Producers Hudson Mohawke and Lunice have spent the last few years blurring the lines between UK and North American club sounds. Already the darlings of the UK’s underground bass scene, Montreal’s Lunice is now working with Diplo, while Glaswegian HudMo has been in the studio with a certain Kanye West – so you’d be right to have high expectations for the duo’s first collaborative release. The ‘TNGHT’ EP packs five explosive instrumental hip-hop tracks, every one dripping with each producer’s trademark sonic flourishes. Chasm-deep 808 basslines bellow beneath spacious marching-band drum grooves, super-sharp snare rolls and quirky snatches of sound, building the tension to near-unbearable levels before collapsing into frenetic, ground-shaking drops. The already huge ‘Bugg’n’, faster-paced ‘Goooo’ and slouched-out ‘Easy Easy’ best exemplify the duo’s oddball brilliance, while ‘Higher Ground’ brings a darker edge to Lunice and HudMo’s playful sonic delirium. Who said hip-hop was dead?
