Taken from his impending album Lantern, Hudson Mohawke’s Scud Books goes so hard that flowers actually blossom in the accompanying video.
The Glasgow-hailing producer revealed the track on Benji B’s BBC Radio 1 show as a follow-up to his production with vocalist Irfane, Very First Breath. Keeping his hip-hop roots at the forefront, Scud Books takes a more cinematic approach with large broken beats laid atop multiple different chord progression segments. The whole thing is set to a psychedelic, super-slowmo video of flowers blossoming, bringing home the epic quality of the deep horn effects that dominate the track.
