Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Hudson Mohawke has
unveiled his very special remix of ‘Pretty Boy’, the latest single from widely
acclaimed emerging producer Wuh Oh. The rework blends Hudson Mohawke’s
signature electro sound with orchestral elements.
Born out of the underground club scene in the UK,
‘Hudmo’ has cultivated a formidable presence in the community and has worked
with some of the biggest names in the industry including Drake, Kanye West,
John Legend, Travis $cott, Frank Ocean, Bjork and many more.
The original single has
already been supported by Pete Tong and showcases Wuh Oh’s talent for
creating a hyper-modern clash of jubilant energy and off-kilter melodies.The
mercurial performer has crammed a great deal of experience into his short
musical evolution. Plucked from MySpace aged 15, his music was previewed along
with a personal interview on Radio 1’s Annie Mac show and went on to
release material on esteemed producer Ryan Hemsworth’s taste-making
Canadian imprint ‘Secret Songs’.
performed on Vic Galloway’s BBC Introducing Sessions, TRNSMT and Electric
Fields, Wuh Oh has recently completed a series of support shows with some
significant peers – including electronica giants Orbital, New York
slo-mo funk pioneer Com Truise and legendary turntablist and
experimental hip-hop producer DJ Shadow.
Wuh Oh’s run of enviable
support appearances have allowed him to develop his live show. Appearing
onstage in otherworldly custom-made outfits, Wuh Oh crafts a surreal and
inventive live experience that merges DJing, dexterous keyboard playing,
self-styled interpretive dance and his sugar-rush pop sound into something
rewarding and unique.
