Listen: Hudson Mohawke ‘Very First Breath’

Genre-smashing Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke is at it again with “Very First Breath.” A club anthem just in time for festival season, “Very First Breath” is a pop sensible catchy track that sees Mohawke evolve into a more grown up sound.

Ross Birchard has had quite the storied career. As the youngest UK DMC finalist ever, at age 15, Birchard quickly rose to fame in the beat scene. This eventually led to signing with infamous UK electronic label Warp-the rest being history.

A cosign from Kanye West and work with the aforementioned GOOD Music crew has made Mohawke a household name. However, he probably shines brightest when working on his solo projects. Last years “Shine” EP was an excellent example of forward thinking club music.

“Very First Breath” is the first track off of his upcoming sophomore release “Lantern,” and, if it is any indication on what is to come, you should pencil in June 16th in your notebook now. French vocalist Irfane adds a much needed balance to the track giving it the ultimate summertime vibe.

Check out the track below and pick up “Lantern” via Warp Records on June 16.
