Hudson Mohawke Butter
Glasgow wunderkind Hudson Mohawke may have titled his debut full-length Butter, but that doesn't mean that the music from this LuckyMe affiliate goes down smooth. That's not to say the music and production isn't on point—it's just that HudMo's ADD cutting and splicing gives his 21st-century digital R&B a hyperactive feel that borders on overwhelming. That said, Butter's playful spirit and choppy crunk bounce are a real breath of fresh air, a sensation only heightened by soulful guest turns from Olivier Daysoul and Dam-Funk. And when he calms down a bit, the results are absolutely sublime—"FUSE" is in the running for song of the year and "Star Crackout" sounds like DJ Shadow's Endtroducing updated for Generation Twitter.
