Boys Noize takes on Hudson Mohawke with new remix
While we anxiously await the release of Hudson Mohawke‘s upcoming full-length LP Lantern, the frequent Kanye West collaborator and former half of TNGHT is leading the push for the new record with a single alongside vocalist Irfane, “Very First Breath.” The tune has been tiding fans over until the album drops, but now Hudmo is getting a quick nod from Boys Noize, extending the track’s shelf life into the summer months with his new “Turbine Mix.”
The original lays Irfane’s buttery vocals over the bombastic percussive swells that Hudmo does best. BNR’s head honcho steps in and steers “Very First Breath” in a much different direction, however. Stripping the tune down to a winding arrangement of rave-ready loops and echoing sample clips, Alex Ridha’s turbine remix is dark and sleek, marked by the ultra-cool minimalism that Boys Noize has down to a science.
