Hudson Mohawke is our sleeper pick of the 2010 Movement festival. The hip hop / electronic producer has caused quite a stir on the interwebs. Signed to Warp Records, the artist also known as HudMo has set the bar for the new generation of computer music producers. His production set-up revolves around the Fruity Loops software, which historically has not given us much in the way of impressive mainstream hits. If anything, it has provided with the tinny and stiff production we hear a lot of on places like MySpace.
Our favorite joint off of Butter (Amazon affiliate link) – his latest release on Warp – is “Rising 5,” which is just a spectacular arrangement of triumphant synth blasts and patiently-laid drums. You can check it out in the multi-media player above.
HudMo is playing a live set Sunday on the Red Bull Music Academy stage. If you dig what you To get you juiced for his performance, check out this video for his song “Joy Fantastic” featuring Olivier.
