Hudson Mohawke today unveils the mighty film to accompany Warriors, the boundary-pushing, gospel-infected anthem from his critically acclaimed album Lantern, out now on Warp Records. This dark and beautiful film from Director Eric Yue portrays The Clipse’s Pusha T as the titular warrior escaping authorities in a not-too-distant future. Hudson and Pusha have worked closely for the last 3 years within the ranks of G.O.O.D Music, with “Warriors” written by Hud Mo in Hawaii during his sessions for Kanye West. The video is described by Yue as “armour, surveillance, fatigue and the endless pursuit” and was shot late at night in Long Island City, New York. ‘Warriors’ had the recent distinct privilege of being one of the first tracks played on Apple’s Beats1 inaugural show as Zane Lowe enthusiastically proclaimed “See this is how it’s done! All producers need to make their instrumentals sing!”

In May Hudson Mohawke debuted his first ever live show at NYC’s Irving Plaza which included keyboardist Redinho and drummer Ben Thompson. After a run of fan-frenzied EU festival shows, he is coming back this fall for his longest run of live shows to date. This tour is made more special by the support of hitmaker and cult RnB star The Dream.

Lantern, released last month, is a masterclass in modern hip hop, pop, RnB & avant garde electronics, featuring pop jewel Very First Breath (another “Hottest Record In The World”), future hip hop classic Ryderz, and club anthem Scud Books.

In the six years since his debut, HudMo has been releasing hit singles and EPs; continuing his rule of the underground club scene. His US break-out came in 2012 with TNGHT, the collaborative project with Montreal producer Lunice, which saw their production influence the A-list of rap and help reintroduce the US dance / EDM scene to hip hop as club music. In the two years following, HudMo has worked on releases from Drake, Kanye West, John Legend, Young Thug, Pusha-T, Future, R Kelly and Antony Hegarty.
