Hudson Mohawke and Nikki Nair Release Set The Roof EP

Hudson Mohawke and Nikki Nair join forces on the joint EP, Set The Roof, dropped today on Warp Records on chipmunk USB stick and DSPs. Following a huge year for both artists that saw Hud Mo release, Cry Sugar, his acclaimed third full-length album, and dominate TikTok for a few weeks with his accidental anthem for bad sex (Cbat). Meanwhile Atlanta stalwart Nikki Nair continued to garner notability, releasing highly regarded singles with Studio Barnhus, VISION, and Sam Binga’s Pineapple Records

This EP spawned from a number of hang outs in Hud Mo’s Healthfarm studio in Echo Park, Los Angeles — an eery and funky place to forge what could just become THE club weapon of the Summer. Already destroying crowds in the tracklist of VTSS, Lala, Salute and a chosen few who stole the early demos… videos have proven this unassuming collection of chipmunked rave can nearly collapse a room at Horst Arts and Music Festival a few weeks ago. The title track “Set The Roof” uses a stem of famed writer Tayla Parx, kept from prior sessions but here, mutated into a tweaky, skippy slice of garage with the trademark clarity of Mohawke’s sonics molten with Nair’s playful genre-crossing use of hardware. On track two, “More Recently”, Nair and Hud Mo show of their ability to work with a wide palette and varied tempo – with shuffling, slumping garage that sounds like Timbaland’s spun his lambo on sleeping pills again. The third and final track from the EP, “Demuro”, shows relative constraint with an out and out French house sample flip, handled with the deft touch of two producers studied in juke and a range of dance music.
