Hudson Mohawke & Mr. Carmack:

Like a child on a sugar high, he dives into ideas”
-- Pitchfork
 

Niche and The Operatives are excited to announce the return of “Hold Tight”, with a killer double bill featuring Hudson Mohawke and Mr. Carmack to kick it off!
 
Currently influencing everything from dance clubs to Chris Brown and Azelia Banks,Hudson Mohawke has been paving impressive path for himself. Scoring himself a record deal with Kayne West’s label, Warp Records, who released his debut LP,Butter.
 
Achieving underground success at an early age and garnishing a cult following, for his vivid psychedelic music. The Guardian describing his music as, “sounds like the lush, horn-blasted hip-hop of Jay-Z beatmakers Just Blaze and Kanye West being forcibly mated with the maverick laptronica of Luke Vibert and Squarepusher.”
 
Moving at a frenetic pace, Hudson Mokawke concedes that, “I don't see any point in making stuff that's already been done." It’s his originality that has him selling out venues around Shordich to SXSW.
 
Joining him is Hawaii-based producer, Mr. Carmack. Blurring lines between hip hop and dance music, Mr. Carmack will get the temperature rising and the room moving and he showcases his eclectic mix of squeaky beats and neptunesque synths.
 
This is your chance to catch two of the most prominent producers / DJ’s leading the way in dance music today.
