TRACK: TNGHT - "Higher Ground"
As part of their new collaborative project TNGHT, producers Hudson Mohawke and Lunice have released a new song titled "Higher Ground." The track follows "Bugg'n" as our second taste of the duo's upcoming self-titled EP, which will be released on July 23 in Europe and July 24 in the U.S. via Warp and LuckyMe. You can stream the song below by way of TNGHT's YouTube channel.
Both Hudson Mohawke and Lunice are not strangers to colorful, ass-shaking bangers, but with TNGHT, it feels as if each producer is bringing his own specialty to new extremes. With blaring brass samples, a prominent trap influence, and a repetitive vocal sample that reminds me of Africa Hitech's "Out in the Streets," "Higher Ground" reaches a level of both irresistible danceability and vibrant personality. If the duo continues to maintain their balance of eccentricity and tastefulness, I'm on board.
