Ross Birchard is one of the most exciting record producers to come out of Scotland in the last ten years, seducing rap-heads and ravers alike with his neon-lit R&B and warehouse smashing low-end beats. Now, as the unlikely poster boy for a new generation of genre-mangling UK artists, he's touring his live festival & club shows across the globe & producing for chart- topping urban-pop names like Kanye West, Drake and Azealia Banks.Hip Hop has always been at Birchards beating heart. A champion DJ by 15 he emerged in his late teens as Hudson Mohawke, a founding member of the record label LuckyMe at the creative nexus of Glasgow's electronic scene – a neo-noir comic book character determined to redefine the 'super producer': a role where the underground is the mainstream and the rule book fits in 140 characters or less.He is certainly on course. HudMo, as he is affectionately known, quickly became Glasgows secret weapon; signing album deals from early demos with the gold standard of electronic music Warp Records. Among the ranks of Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Squarepusher, Flying Lotus and fellow LuckyMe cohort Rustie, he continues to perfect his sound: classic soul samples siphoned through bombastic air horns, heart-aching top line melody floating above rattling half-time tempos. A truly modern artist belonging to true-hip hops lineage, but equally inspired by the pop/soul hybrids of Quincy Jones. The main room happy hardcore rave and the deep, dark roots of techno are all viscerally acknowledged in this music – even at it's most pop.Hudson Mohawke (Ross Birchard) has been on a meteoric rise the last few years, working with some of the biggest names in hip hop, pop and dance music but everything started in a bedroom in Glasgow when he was barely a teenager. From age 15 he was an award winning scratch DJ producing happy hardcore on cracked software – he came to define a generation of electronic fusion producers but unlike many of his peers, Hudson has matured into a fully fledged contemporary hitmaker continually working to break the mold. Born of the underground club scene in the UK, Hud Mo has been releasing music for the last 10 years, cultivating a formidable presence in the community. His US break-out came in 2012 with TNGHT, the collaborative project with fellow producer Lunice, which saw their production influence the A-list in rap and help reintroduce the US dance / EDM scene to Hip Hop as club music. In the two years following, Hudson has worked on releases from Drake, Kanye West, John Legend, Young Thug, Pusha-T, and Antony Hegarty.
