Hudson Mohawke Releases New Track “Foxy Boxing”
Since his release of the soundtrack for the video game Watch Dogs in 2016, we have not really heard much of Hudson Mohawke other than his track in HBO’s Silicon Valley and his cameo on “Twin Peaks.” Now, though, Mohawke has just released his newest work titled “Foxy Boxing” as part of FLuckyMe’s “Advent Calendar” series, an annual compilation collection. Though this is Hudson Mohawke’s newest release, this may not be the first time you heard it as there has been a ripped version in internet circulation since he played it at his 2011 Boiler Room set. The song opens with classic tones synonymous with Hudson Mohawke. A small percussive beat comes in with the reminiscence of his TNGHT days. Soon, a melodic, piercing synth rolls in as the classic and slow development Mohawke is known soon brings in exciting vocal samples. All of this comes together as the drop of the song prepares itself. What seems to be a large drop morphs into a more calming, yet, dance-filled beat. The song finished off with more natural sounding percussion and the music fades out. This track is truly the Hudson Mohawke we have been yearning for since his release of his studio album Lantern. You can listen to the music for free through Soundcloud or even obtain it as a free download after signing up for the LuckyMe newsletter. Check out “Foxy Boxing” below.
Hudson Mohawke was born Ross Matthew Birchard in Glasgow, Scotland.
