This week kickstarts with an electrifying new album by DJ pioneer Hudson Mohawke, and Beck's got a new sound.
Hudson Mohawke – Lantern (Album)
Trap/hip-hop/EDM producer Hudson Mohawke is nothing if not a bright light of innovation in the electronic music world. His second album, 'Lantern', sidesteps the genre-pigeonholing that most DJ/producers fall into by this point in their output and exposure, pasting together elements of urban music and mainstream dance with a glorious deftness of touch. Definitely one of the best electronic releases of the year. Joel Robertson
Beck - Dreams (Single)
The first piece of music since 2014's 'Morning Phase', 'Dreams' is groovy, in parts scuzzy, and ultimately straddles some no man's land between dance and garage rock, suggesting a musical divergence in his upcoming album. Luke Nightingale
