TNGHT – “Serpent”

This post was originally published on this site

Towards the beginning of the decade, producers Hudson Mohawke and Lunice put out a handful of maximalist electronic songs under the name TNGHT. The project went on hiatus in 2013, but before that they released an EP and a couple of one-offs. (An unreleased track of theirs served as the bed for Kanye … More »

Lunice hints at TNGHT comeback, Diplo pairing in new interviewTnght

In a recent interview with SR-MAG, Lunice answered questions about touring with Madonna, his production influences on his debut CCCLX LP, producing with Kanye and Diplo, where he thought the cultural shift in electronic music is going, and a tantalizing hint at TNGHT‘s reunion.

What’s more, Lunice also discussed work he’s been doing with Diplo, revealing a possible collaborative project with the Ma and has been working with his old counterpart Hudson Mohawke for a potential TNGHT comeback, as they’ve been hinting since the end of last year. Lunice and Hudson Mohawke haven’t worked together since 2013, since the release of one single “ACRYLICS,” and before that in 2012 they released their TNGHT EP via Warp and LuckyMe that featured the massively popular EDM trap hitter, “Higher Ground,” that rocked festivals stages in the hay-day of electronic trap. In 2013, the trap duo co-produced “Blood on the Leaves” with Kanye West from his critically acclaimed Yeezus album.

Lunice has produced with the likes of Angel Haze, Azealia Banks, Denzel Curry, Rick Ross, Le1f, and many more aside from the artists listed above. His music cuts through the contemporary dance music landscape through textured sounds, clear production, and experimental pairings that have made his production skills a highly sought-after commodity.

There’s strong evidence suggesting TNGHT are dropping new music very soon

December 27 will mark exactly five years since Lunice and Hudson Mohawke dissolved their TNGHT collaboration. As quickly as the pair teamed up and launched the heavy horn-led trap trend into the stratosphere, the duo disappeared arguably at the height of their success. Despite some sporadic whispering of a reunion over the years, the “Acrylics” producers have yet to resurface — though it seems that might be about to change.

First, HudMo and Lunice’s defunct shared Twitter account reemerged only to post a tantalizing meme without much context. Pretty innocuous, however, the group’s rare social media activity matched with LuckyMe‘s annual
Advent Calendar release series suggests a roll out to new music is actually happening right before our eyes. Each artist tagged on LuckyMe’s SoundCloud page have a release slated for this year’s Advent Calendar series — Hudson Mohawke, Lunice, and TNGHT are all tagged.

Pair these quiet online activities with the impending anniversary of TNGHT’s indefinite disbandment, and we may have a Christmas miracle reunion underway. For now, only time will tell, but new music from the trap lords has been on everyone’s wish list for quite some time now.

Brownies & Lemonade has spent years making a name for itself on the Los Angeles party circuit. Now known for putting on shows with impeccably on-trend bass, trap and future artists, open aux cord nights, secret venues, even more secret lineups, B&L has become a stalwart in the LA electronic scene through grassroots measures.

But the spontaneous and secretive nature of the events they put on is now shifting. After weeks of teasing new party locations on Twitter, the group announced its first-ever Brownies & Lemonade tour. Featuring the party’s frequently featured artists like Alexander Lewis, CRAY, KRANE, Luca Lush and Vincent, the tour will kick off on September 29 in San Diego. With nine total dates culminating in a show on December 8 in Houston, Brownies & Lemonade will tour the western half of North America. More information is available on the B&L website, where tickets are on sale now.

Revisit the iconic TNGHT EP six years after its release

Revisit the iconic TNGHT EP six years after its releaseTnght

While the word “influential” is tossed around quite liberally these days, there are still times when an artist’s music can truly spearhead an entire movement. This can certainly be said about TNGHT, the iconic duo consisting of Hudson Mohawke and Lunice, and their seminal TNGHT EP.

The EP, which turned six years old on July 23, left an unforeseeable mark on electronic music and brought new light and critical acclaim to an album that would stand as the predecessor to many forms of trap music. While other trap pioneers were focusing on vocal chops or a more hip-hop oriented sound, the TNGHT EP added a texture and depth the scene was missing. With the full-bodied brass section on “Higher Ground,” the unapologetically brash percussion on “Goooo,” and the consistently banging low-end throughout the project, this project laid the foundation for many trap artists and mutations of the genre, such as the larger-than-life sounds of festival trap.

The project also helped bridge the gap between electronic trap music and mainstream hip-hop. Shortly after the release of this EP, Hudson Mohawke was signed to Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music, where he worked on the collaborative Cruel Summer album, as well as joining the star-studded production team on Yeezus alongside Skrillex, Daft Punk, Gesaffelstein, and Rick Rubin. Gaining a wide-reaching impact from just 15 minutes of beats, the TNGHT EP is one with strong replay value, cultural importance, and all-around great music.

Lunice is proving to be one of dance music’s most ravishing enigmas. An elusive gift that keeps on giving, the artist has now reworked the UK band Django Django’s indie pop track “Surface To Air” into a compelling club-detonator.

Coalescing vivacious vocals with added lows, Lunice crafts a bass-driven rendition that delights in its distinction as close-knit percussion is met with its unique vocal work. Clearly, Lunice has dropped off the ultimate club weapon. It’s a radiant belter, whose added lows beckon interminable repeats.
