The Final Finale
Bodega BAMZ Feat. Youth Is Dead
Bodega Bamz continues to explore his eclectic taste in production with his latest song "The Final Finale," which features vocals from Youth is Dead and beatsmithery of Hudson Mohawke. The East Harlem rapper previously tapped Youth is Dead and Hudson Mohawke on "GHOST," released last month.

Bodega Bamz just dropped “Disney World On Acid” at the beginning of March, but he’s already looking to top that single with his next track, called “GHOST.” The artwork fittingly pays homage to the Ghostbusters.
Escape From New York
Hudson Mohawke made the surprising but ultimately good choice of leaving most of his trap influence behind on his latest album, Lantern. The producer found his greatest success yet in his pairing with Lunice as TNGHT, but with his latest solo offering, he carved out a sound all his own as a legion of beatmakers copped the duo's style.
Last week, Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke shared a low-quality rip the track "Ryderz" from his new album Lantern via a mix a on Rinse.fm, and today, he's tossed the CDQ up on Spotify. As this was my personal pick for last week's Staff Picks playlist on SoundCloud, I'm pretty amped to hear it in full.
Hudson Mohawke has experimented within plenty of different genres, but he hit a sweet spot with his distorted synth brass ensembles on TNGHT, and eventually caught the ear of Kanye West. Since then, his sound has been increasingly informed by rap, and "Ryderz" finds him exploring new territory, looking back through the work of Just Blaze and the Dipset-co-signed Heatmakerz production team, turning a sample of D.J. Rogers’ “Watch Out For The Riders” into a monstrous collage of heavily filtered sounds.
Very First Breath
By now, Hudson Mohawke is a seasoned hip-hop producer, signed to the production wing of Kanye West's GOOD Music. He's produced for Drake, Pusha T, and, of course, Yeezy himself. Though, HudMo started his career as a solo artist and stood atop the world of U.K. bass music before he got signed by Kanye. We expect to see him on a few So Help Me God beats, so it's all the more impressive he his own album on the way.

Today Hudson is ready to unveil the CDQ and official version of the record's remix, which features an all-star line-up consisting of fellow G.O.O.D.

Hudson Mohawke Feat. Future, French Montana, Pusha T & Travis Scott
Back in July, Hudson Mohawke shared a monstrous instrumental track called "Chimes" that failed to make a big splash in the hip-hop world at the time. Well, this should change that. Future, French Montana, Pusha T and Travi$ Scott have all contributed to a new remix of the track.

OnCue will be following up his Leftovers 2 mixtape from last year with Angry Young Man in the coming weeks, a project we will be exclusively premiering right here on HNHH.

Give Jumanji (Prod by Hudson Mohawke & Nick Hook) a listen - it's a new offering from Azealia Banks. It was dropped on Friday, May 11th, 2012. Azealia Banks's musical situation is improving with every new release, and Jumanji (Prod by Hudson Mohawke & Nick Hook) will most definitely help the cause. It's a fine addition to the growing body of work Azealia Banks has been developing since stepping foot in the game. We're looking forward to what Azealia Banks has in store.
