On “Cry Sugar (Megamix)” Hudson takes various parts from the full album to offer a window into the project’s full sonic palette ahead of release, while “Bicstan” dabs elements of Roland TB-303 flecked acid and driving gabber alongside floating, effervescent vocals and Kerri Chandler-esque house chords.
Cry Sugar serves as HudMo’s first work deeply informed by apocalyptic film scores and soundtracks by everyone from the late Vangelis to the goofy major-chord pomp of 90s John Williams. Cry Sugar also serves as Mohawke’s own demented OST to score the twilight of our cultural meltdown.
Watch the megamix below and stream the first single, “Bicstan.”
