On August 22 in Los Angeles, Ray-Ban and Boiler Room partnered for a warehouse spectacular presented by Hudson Mohawke. Created in collaboration with Warp Records and art directed by LuckyMe Studio, with a line up at the forefront of breaking electronic music, the event was broadcasted live around the globe.
Hudson Mohawke’s set is now available to watch in its entirety and is full of exclusive new music and features special surprise guests Busta Rhymes, Eric Wareheim & Flying Lotus as Captain Murphy. The musical performances were set alongside traditional Kabuki theatre and samurai displays choreographed by Kaz Matamura, while large monsters designed by Trish Hunter (Bjork’s Wunderlust video) roamed around the warehouse.
A monster moment in Hudson Mohawke sets, “Chimes” itself is representative of the dizzying display that took place during the event. Mastered and louder than ever, the tune is part of a 4 track EP set for release on September 30. The short tracklist is perfectly arranged to demonstrate that the writer continues to refuse genre description years after his debut. Ross Birchard continues to defy expectations and reshape the boundaries of hip hop, pop and electronic music. Working on the fine line that contemporary music draws between underground & mainstream.
