About this item
‘Satin Panthers’ is a new five track, bass-heavy post modern R&B juggernaut from Glaswegian uber-producer Hudson Mohawke.
His musical skills have been requested by the likes of Tinie Tempah, Chris Brown, Just Blaze (producer for Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, Usher, Notorious BIG, Kanye West, Eminem, Nicole Scherzinger, Lil’ Wayne, TI, The Game), Flying Lotus and Battles. As Just Blaze put it: “These are the chords I hear in dreams that I forget when I wake.” Hudson Mohawke is fast becoming the go-to man for some of R&B’s premier names, with Chris Brown also recently using a Hudson Mohawke track on his latest video online.
The EP opens with 'Octan', a simple combination of arpeggiated top end and layers of mega, stadium-friendly synth chords to blow your head right off. 'Thunder Bay' hits us with some ultra-chunky wonky-hop - again those big fat synth chords are at the front with an almost random selection of beats underneath. 'Cbat' sounds like the 'Nutcracker Suite' remade by rather drunk robots. And some crunk mice. On the flipside 'All Your Love' combines chunky piano lines with thumping beats and pitched-up soul vocals, while 'Thank You' closes the EP with more of those crunching breaks and epic sun-blushed synths a la Boards / Bibio - anthem alert!
