As announced on yesterday's mailout, Hudson Mohawke, superlative hip hop producer, has put together a live band, and we're having him play our first birthday party, along with excellent rock band Egyptian Hip Hop and smashing DJ Stopmakingme.
We're predictably massive fans of Hudson, whose elasticated, Technicolor productions upended both conventional hip hop and monochrome electronica, so we jumped at the chance to present his first London headline date as a live artist. We fell in love with Egyptian Hip Hop's melodic jams last Summer, so when we heard them say they were massive Hudson fans, we asked them to play, and they said yes. Dan Avery / Stopmakingme made our very first mix back in March '09 and has since taken on writing duties, on top of promoting Kill 'Em All and a steady stream of excellent remixes. We're really chuffed that he's coming down and playing his ever-excellent set of forward-thing but fun-time club music.
We're having it at the Macbeth on the 30th April, tickets are only £7. Don't want to sound cocky, but it's probably worth booking ahead for this one. Gigantic link is here
