“Acrylics” evokes the spirit of late 90s UK happy hardcore whilst still maintaining the distinctive widescreen cinematics and percussive hip hop bounce which saw their 2012 EP become a defining release and cement the duo as the new production favorites of rappers from Kanye West to Lil Wayne to Kendrick Lamar.
As two of the most exciting artists in urban electronic music Glaswegian Hudson Mohawke and Montreal native Lunice came together last year as TNGHT to launch an all out assault on the world hip hop production – backing this up with an incendiary live show that they showcased last summer. Although both are well established as solo artists, this project gave them both an opportunity to indulge their more decadent tendencies.
TNGHT will also be appearing at selected festival dates throughout summer 2013, and stay tuned for more music.
April 10 – Philadelphia, PA @ Starlight Ballroom
April 12 – Indio, CA @ Coachella
April 17 – New York City, NY @ Webster Hall
April 19 – Indio, CA @ Coachella
April 20 – San Francisco, CA @ Mezzanine

Hudson Mohawke is currently working on a new album for Warp and has just signed on as a producer to Kanye Wests G.O.O.D. music imprint.
Lunice is currently working on his debut album for LuckyMe as well as numerous productions for a plethora of major label hip hop.
This summer sees the debut collaborative release from Hudson Mohawke and Lunice, two of the hottest young producers out there right now. Their TNGHT project is coming out as a five track EP on vinyl and digitally July 24th via Warp Records/LuckyMe.
Those familiar with the genre-blending, ground-quaking beats of Glasgow’s Hudson Mohawke and Montreal’s Lunice will think they know what is in store from a collaboration between the two, but nothing could prepare for the future hip hop production featured on TNGHT.
The duo debuted their collab at this year’s SXSW. With thousands of acts it is virtually impossible to stand out, especially for an act that has never released a track or played a show, but TNGHT packed out the venue, and the entire room shook from excitement (and bass!).

ANOTHER CITY NOW is the debut ep from ANGO aka Andrew Gordon Macpherson, the next voice hailing from Montreal, Canada on the LuckyMe label. A frequent collaborator with Jacques Greene, Lunice & NYC’s Azealia Banks, now is the time for ANGO to step out alone.
On this 6 track story – written on the road whilst touring at the turn of the year – late 80s pop, early 90s house and contemporary RnB arise in equal measure. A writer as well as a producer, this record is a lyrically polarised selection of girl songs expressing the way up and the way back down. But there’s something defiantly warm in ANGO’s music that serves as a refreshing antidote to 2011’s endlessly morose electronic music. Where polysynths and hats spring above plates of live processed vocals, chopped samples are harmonised upon, punctuated with thumping drums.
ANOTHER CITY NOW is a balanced record: upbeat and deep, vintage and yet totally modern, as heart aching as it is uplifting. Our tenth record is something special. If you have to write a genre, write RnB, but know that this draws from much further.
