TNGHT – Hudson Mohawke x Lunice
Warning, this is not your normal trap music. The transatlantic duo TNGHT, featuring the esteemed Warp Records’ Hudson Mohawke and the Brainfeeder import Lunice, have finally released their much anticipated collaboration. Blending extremely sharp snares and kicks with the signature swagger and spiritual elements of trip-hop, this is going to shape the trap movement. Because both artists actually worked together in the studio, as opposed to the dropbox/postal service method that allows artist to work across the globe, the finished product is top notch and displays elements from both sides of the equation. The easy winners are Higher Ground, Goooo and Bugg’n, but all five tracks on the release are stellar, and will make longtime fans of the two extremely happy. These songs have been setting off sets all summer, but are more thoughtful that a lot of the trap music coming out these days. There’s no disappointment here to be found, just like every piece that comes from these two and their labelmates.
