Today marks the release of Hudson Mohawke’s new album ‘Lantern’, featuring singles ‘Very First Breath‘ and ‘Warriorz‘.  Until now, the Glaswegian producer’s music has always toyed with Hip Hop; be it the hyped Trap as part of TNGHT or working with Kanye West on ‘Yeezus’.  ‘Lantern’, however, is marked in its departure from Hip Hop, taking on a far loftier, majestic Electro-Pop sound.  Features on the album are sparse, with only Jhené Aiko, Antony, Irfane, Devaeux and Miguel providing vocals.  While we’re a little upset that the album abandons the harsh horns and angular Trap we’re used to from HudMo, ‘Lantern’ is a superb listen; a real showcase of the Scot’s talent.  Stream below via Spotify.
