Remember the days of combing your favorite music blogs for brand new tunes, years before the DSP arms race began, circa 2010? Perhaps not…that era seems like ancient history now. However, for those who do recall that time fondly, Hudson Mohawke is finally tossing out a long awaited piece of blog-era nostalgia with his elusive “Foxy Boxing,” which is now getting an official release after more than half a decade of online bootleg circulation. The Scottish beat maker is giving the rare tune away now, though fans have been salivating over this track’s release since 2011, when fellow LuckyMe labelmate Jacques Greene dropped an early, unreleased rendition of “Foxy Boxing” during a Boiler Room set.
The track, in its official, final version plays as an easily digestible instrumental with subtle vocalizing weaved into crisp multi-layered percussion arrangements. HudMo’s new, old giveaway is being released part of LuckyMe’s Advent Calendar series.
