HGLDT "Mo(ve)ments in Time"
Poutine. MUTEK. Smoked meat sandwiches. Montreal is known for a lot of things, and thanks to the efforts of producers like Jacques Greene, LOL Boys, Hissy Fit, and HGLDT, the city may soon be able to add forward-thinking bass music to that list. HGLDT (a.k.a. Henry Goury-Laffont) heads up the Swing and Skip imprint, which recently dropped its second release, a split 12" from UK beatmaker Damu and the label head himself. "Mo(ve)ments in Time" may not appear on the record, but it does offer the same kind of boundary-crossing spirit, combining snappy, Neptunes-style hip-hop drums with a whimsical synth melody and an adorably creepy vocal that kind of sounds like a mogwai—the creature from Gremlins, not the band.
