At last, 2020 is the year of Hudson Mohawke. After dropping the surprise new EP Heart of the Night online, the Scottish DJ and producer gives us his first LP under the moniker in four years. The vibe of B.B.H.E. is that of a mixtape; it’s a collection of tunes worked on over many years, scattered with turntablist strangeness (‘Mandarania’), synth brass bombast (‘Brooklyn’) and instrumental hip hop languidness (‘Beyond’), each track shot through with Hudson Mohawke’s unmatched left-field electronic sensibilities. As always, the producer resists easy categorisation, saturating B.B.H.E. with auditory left-turns wherever possible.

Darkstar return with their first music since their 2015’s ‘Foam Island’.
On ‘Wolf’ Darkstar (Aidan Whalley and James Young) pair hypnotic shoegaze vocals with stripped back club-focused sounds, exposing a fragment of what’s to come of the UK duo’s idiosyncratic take on electronic pop.
