Next week, Hudson Mohawke is set to drop his new solo EP, Chimes, via Warp Records. In anticipation, the former TNGHT member and current G.O.O.D. Music signee has shared a new song entitled “Brainwave”.
Whereas the EP’s lead single “Chimes” was a monster trap banger, this latest offering sees the Scottish producer taking on a more tempered, meditative approach. Instead of beat-heavy and thunderous, “Brainwave” is a smoldering, ambient number whose bleeping, laser-like synths seem to rise and fall like the oscillations of — you guessed it — a brainwave. It’s almost as though HudMo’s actually peered into a person’s cerebrum, witnessed the various neurons popping and firing off signals to one another, and then set the whole scene to music.
Listen in below.
Chimes the EP hits shelves on September 30th via Warp. For more of the beatsmith’s material, check out his recent BBC Radio 1 mix, which includes an unreleased Action Bronson collaboration and a remix of Kanye West’s “Cold”.
