Hudson Mohawke Reveals Alternate Version of ‘Bound 2′

Hudson Mohawke surprised the crowd at Canal Mills in Leeds, UK Feb. 15 by treating them to an unreleased alternate version of Bound 2, the love-it-or-hate-it finale to Kanye West’s 2013 LP Yeezus.

Though the Glaswegian DJ was not involved in producing Bound 2, he did play a significant role in the overall construction of Yeezus (jointly credited to the likes of Daft Punk, Arca, Gesaffelstein, and more), which would explain how he was able to get his hands on this cut. Completely absent is the controversial “bound to fall in love” sample, as is the cut-and-paste collage motif, leading some folks to surmise that this is, in fact, the prequel to which the title of Bound 2 alludes.
