Hudson Mohawke is G.O.O.D.

Dear Major Hip Hop labels,
If you haven't noticed, the two trend-setting record labels in Hip Hop have now both signed electronic artists to their label. MOUNT...UP!

I'll start by taking a quick trip in the time machine to last summer when I had an @AsherRoth track titled Roof Behind the Grill on heavy repeat. Sure Ash Roth's lyrical talents got me to initially give it a listen, but that wasn't what kept the track in heavy rotation. Nope, it was the beat that was like a side of sour cream when your realize you over-did the hot sauce on your burrito. It was a rowdy, attention-grabbing beat that sounded like someone beating on a pipe, which was different, but kinda cool.

Enter @HudMo who just joined YMCMB's @staffordbros as the latest EDM imports into Hip Hop. The Glasgow, Scotland native signed with G.O.O.D. Music as a producer, presumably for Kanye. If you've had your ear to the underground, you've no doubt heard of Hudson or his recent group endeavor @TNGHT with @Lunice.

Other than the cameo credit tag I gave him last summer, I've mostly slept on HudMo and have had to play catch up this week. Luckily, @PigsAndPlans had everyone's back and released a Top 10 Hudson Mohawke tracks today as a cliff notes version of his surprisingly lengthy history. My personal favorite is below and that's only because Kanye has yet to make a masterpiece out of his amazing beat Scud Books...#HudMo
